What are adaptogens?
Adaptogens are natural substances (plants, fungi, minerals) that naturally increase the body’s ability to resist the damaging effects of stress on the body and promote or restore normal physiological function. These natural substances work in a responsive manner to the body’s needs: boosting immunity, energy, and help us feel more balanced.
How many bars can I eat a day?
These functional mushrooms are powerful herbs, and we suggest that you start with just eating one or two a day. After eating them for several days, you can begin to consume as many as you would like!
Do you use the mushroom's fruiting body in your product?
Yes! We use a blend of mainly the fruiting body; however, we also have mycelium in our mushroom mix, as mycelium produces an extraordinary array of powerful enzymes that provide a complex matrix of bio-active, health-promoting compounds.
Are the bars organic?
Yes, our products are USDA certified 95% organic. All ingredients have cleared rigorous USDA certification standards, going all the way back to the farm.
How are the bars sweetened?
The bars are sweetened with a dash of Tapioca Syrup, which is derived from Cassava, a naturally occuring tuberous root. This sustainable, organic sweetener provides great taste without any artifical funk, and only 5g total sugar per bar.
Is the packaging compostable?
Yes! The textured insert inside the box is made of mushrooms, grown into that shape, then dehydrated. These are compostable in 21 days. The boxes are made from tree-free paper and are also compostable (minus the shipping & barcode stickers). The only exception is the bar wrapper, which in the near future will also be compostable.
Do you manufacture sustainably?
Yes! We are very passionate about all things being sustainable. Our mushrooms are sustainably cultivated in California using very little energy, our boxing supplier was 1 of 10 California companies to make the Green Team Honor Roll, our mushroom boxes are naturally grown in 7 days and compost into the soil in less than 30, and our product manufacturer is SQF and is partially run on solar power. SQF codes are designed to meet the highest regulatory requirements for all sectors of the food supply chain — from farms all the way to retail stores. We have and will continue to look for the best and most sustainable suppliers in the industry.
Do you test your products for heavy metals?
Yes. All of our products are subject to a three step process. Our supplier provide us with their testing specs per batch, we run our product through metal detectors during manufacturing, and then post-manufacturing we have our manufacturer lab test for heavy metals and other contaminants to meet and exceed industry standards.
