Yes, we are an Australian Certified Organic (ACO) operation, and our products are sourced from the highest quality certified organic farms. Being certified organic means you have a supply chain that is overseen by a highly trusted third party to ensure all goods are free from chemicals, GMO's, preservatives, pesticides, heavy metals, and other unnatural contaminants. All our partners pass rigorous quality control hurdles, testing and annual audits.
ARE BETA-GLUCANS (β-glucans) IMPORTANT?
Beta glucans are a group of polysaccharides found in the cell walls of mushrooms, and they have been linked to various health benefits.
DO YOU USE 100% FRUITING BODIES?
The mushrooms are all ethically and sustainably grown using traditional hardwood methods, and we only use 100% fruiting bodies. We believe that that high quality fruiting bodies contain more concentrated levels of beneficial compounds.
WHERE DO YOUR MUSHROOMS COME FROM?
We prioritise the selection of premium-grade ingredients and full traceability. China has been farming mushrooms for both food and traditional medicine for centuries, and it is now home to some of the world's best-quality mushrooms. Hence, we partner with reputable certified organic farms located in Dao Di provinces across rural China. This ensures that we use only the finest fruiting bodies that are ethically and sustainably grown.
WHAT DOES FULL SPECTRUM MEAN?
We take a full spectrum approach when crafting our mushroom extract powders, which is why we carefully blend extract and whole mushroom powder. This way, you get the balanced complexity and concentration of all the key compounds, including the beneficial β-glucans.
WHY IS THE GROWTH SUBSTRATE IMPORTANT?
We use traditional hardwood growing methods. Knowing the growth substrate is important when sourcing functional mushrooms. Mushrooms turn the growth substrate into secondary metabolite that are beneficial to humans, a mushrooms capacity to do this depends largely on what they are grown on. Most mushrooms require a hardwood growth substrate for this.
DO YOUR PRODUCTS CONTAIN FILLERS?
It is worth knowing that other extract powders may contain a high percentage of fillers due to the spray drying process used. We take pride in our patented membrane filtration process which allows the liquid concentrate to be spray-dried without using a carrier. This means no fillers, carriers, or excipients.
ARE YOUR PRODUCTS LABORATORY TESTED?
We take every measure to ensure that you receive nothing but the best from us. To achieve this, we conduct comprehensive laboratory testing on every product we offer to assess its grade, purity, authenticity, and consistency. Our testing process includes screening for heavy metals, pesticides, moulds, yeasts, and other chemicals to ensure that our products are free from any harmful contaminants. Furthermore, and very importantly, we analyse the microbiological profiles of our products and test for beneficial compounds, leaving you with the confidence that you're getting highly effective products.
