Nutraceuticals FAQ

What is mushroom powder?

Mushroom powders are made from dehydrated and ground mushrooms. The type of powder depends on the variety and part(s) of the mushroom that is used.

How do mushrooms become nutraceutical?

Nutraceutical products are those used as medicine in addition to being used for nutrition; medicinal mushrooms can offer extra benefits.

Mushroom varieties like Maitake, Reishi, and others are grown on grain or hardwood that’s inoculated with the mushroom culture. They are then dehydrated and ground into a fine powder, which can easily be incorporated into your favorite food and beverage products with minimal impact on the flavor.

Why buy Monterey Mushroom Powders?

We know mushrooms! From seed (spawn) to powder, we have control over every aspect of our business as we’re vertically integrated. In fact, we’re the only vertically integrated mushroom producer in North America. The spawn we use to grow our medicinal mushrooms is produced by our affiliate, Amycel SpawnMate. Then, we grow, dry, and package everything at our facility in California to ensure our mushrooms powders reach their full potential.

If that’s not enough, we third-party test for heavy metals, pesticides, mycotoxins, polysaccharides, and various active compounds. In house we test every product for potency, quality, and purity, and we have that verified by a third party periodically.

Mushrooms: Nature’s Nutraceutical Wonder

 

For decades, researchers have been quantifying the nutritional value of mushrooms. Modern studies link mushrooms as possible cancer-fighters, immunity-boosters, and even anti-aging dietary sources.

Now, the secret’s out. Food manufacturers everywhere add finely ground nutraceutical mushroom powder into their food products for extra health benefits, beyond their basic nutritional value.

How can you blame them? Our organic specialty mushroom powders provide support for a healthy mind, energy, endurance, and immune support — with minimal impact on the flavor of your favorite food and beverage products.
