WHAT ARE MUSHROOM CAPSULES?

As you already know, some mushrooms are edible, some mushrooms are medicinal, and others might just kill you.

Of all edible mushrooms, some are great for tossing into a stir fry or side dish.

Shiitake, portobello, white button mushrooms, porcinis, and plenty of other varieties taste great so it’s easy to incorporate them into your meals.

Other mushrooms, however, have higher quantities of phytonutrients and antioxidants- but their flavor isn’t so appealing.

Reishi, turkey tail, chaga, and many others are known as functional or medicinal mushrooms due to their elevated levels of beta glucans and other important nutrients.

Instead of fresh, you can buy extracted versions of these medicinal mushrooms that are conveniently stuffed into capsules.

You could also buy fresh or dried mushroom powders and make the capsules yourself!

These mushrooms contain no psilocybin, so you won’t experience any hallucinogenic effects: just good health and immune-supporting potential.

With medicinal mushroom capsules, you can easily add beta glucans, potassium, B vitamins, and important antioxidants to your supplement routine.

WHAT ARE MUSHROOM CAPSULES MADE FROM?

Not all mushroom powders and capsules are the same.

If you are looking to actually get the benefits of mushrooms, you need to choose extracts made from the whole fruiting body.

Cheaper varieties are made from a different part of the mushroom called mycelium, which grows in rice grain- so the final product only contains trace amounts of the substances you want, and high levels of starch.

In high-quality mushroom powders, the raw mushrooms are carefully dried and extracted with hot water, then turned into a fine powder through a process called “spray drying”. The end result is a potent mushroom powder that contains all the beneficial compounds you’d expect in a mushroom supplement.

 

WHAT ABOUT THE CAPSULES THEMSELVES?

Again, it depends on who you buy your mushroom capsules from.

Some brands will use cheap capsules made from any type of gelatin available — could be beef, pork, or vegetable-based.

Best bet is to look for products with capsules made from pullulan.

Pullulan is a substance made from fermented tapioca. It’s gluten-free, starch-free, and can be found in organic and non-GMO varieties.

Not only that, but pullulan is naturally vegan, halal, and kosher.

Pullulan also helps keep your mushroom extract safe from degrading under sunlight and oxygen.

What are mushroom capsules made of?

Not all mushroom powders and capsules are made the same. In fact, to enjoy the benefits of mushrooms, you need to select an extract of the entire fruiting body. Cheaper varieties are made from another piece of mushroom called hyphae. Because mycelium grows on rice grains, the final product contains traces of the substance of interest and high levels of starch.

Raw mushrooms are carefully dried with high-quality mushroom powder, extracted with hot water, and then made into fine powder through a process called spray drying. The result is a powerful mushroom powder that contains all the beneficial compounds you would expect from a mushroom supplement.

Do you like the capsule itself?

Again, it depends on who buys the mushroom pods. Some brands use cheap capsules made of all types of gelatin available, including beef, pork, and plant-based gelatin. It’s best to look for capsule products made from pullulan. Pullulan is a substance obtained by fermenting tapioca. It does not contain gluten or starch and is found in organic and non-GMO varieties.

In addition, pullulan is naturally vegan, halal and kosher. Pullulan also helps prevent the breakdown of mushroom juice when exposed to sunlight and oxygen.

Are Mushroom Capsules Organic? Vegan or Keto

Now that you know what’s in the mushroom pod, what about a special meal? The capsule itself depends on the manufacturer’s instructions and the material of the capsule. Vegetarian capsules do not necessarily have to be vegan or halal as they can be manufactured in a facility that processes pork products. It’s different from mushroom powder. Search for eco-certified stamps for cork products.

For example, at Mushroomifi Mushrooms, all mushroom products are made from fruit-bearing stalks and from certified organic, vegan, gluten-free and gluten-free pullulan pods.

Mushrooms are also an excellent ingredient in the keto and paleo diets. The extract makes it possible to obtain a concentrated version of mushrooms, making mushroom capsules ultra-low calorie and suitable for any diet.  You may have heard of healthy mushrooms, medicated mushroom extracts, and powders. Unlike many mushroom powders found in grocery stores, these capsules are not intended to add flavor to food. Of course, mushroom flour can be used in many delicious recipes.
