If you ever wondered how Mushrooms Coffee is made, here is short summery.
After harvesting, mushrooms are dried and smashed into powder.
Powder goes through “double extraction” process. This process is necessary because mushrooms contain some constituents that are water-soluble, called beta-glucans, and some that are alcohol-soluble, called triterpenes. Double extractions process assures bioavailability of both.
P.S. if you consider buying mushroom supplements only “extracts” should be considered, since others will not have most of bio-active ingredients, you are buying them for. Those supplements will not even dissolve well in hot water, and you will notice crumbs on the bottom of your cup. You can learn more about dangers while buying mushroom supplements here.
After extraction, liquid extract is dried and smashed back into powder. In average 1 kg of fresh mushrooms provides with less than 0.08kg of extract, which explains why small dosage is so effective.
Now that all the important elements are bioactivated, screening and testing process takes place.
Only extracts with highest percentages of polysaccharides are used (our Chaga has >50% and Cordyceps >40% of polysaccharides while most products on the market range 10% – 30%) and mixed with freshly grinded organic arabica coffee, to provide you with amazing taste and exceptional chemical composition.
