Beyond being a source of protein, medicinal mushrooms offer an array of health benefits and have numerous applications due to their robust content of antioxidants, including phenolics, flavonoids, carotenoids, and ascorbic acid. They are also rich sources of immune-enhancing beta-glucans. Extracting the power of these polysaccharides has traditionally been difficult due to problems with absorption, breakdown, and deactivation by stomach acid, as well as limited bioavailability in humans. However, a highly advanced proprietary micronization process that reduces particle size makes the beta-glucans in Immune-Assist™ 100% bioavailable and immediately absorbable.

MycoPure™ is a plant-based protein powder (from pea and rice) fermented from shiitake mushrooms. It also features Immune-Assist™, a blend of medicinal mushrooms that offers robust immune support. Shiitake fermented protein contains all 9 essential amino acids, has a high branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) composition, and has a PDCAA (Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score) of 1.00, making it a superior form of plant-based protein that rivals the quality of animal proteins. Further, the fermentation of plant proteins removes anti-nutrients and optimizes the digestibility and nutritional profile.
With a PDCAA score of 1.0, the quality of shiitake fermented protein emulates that of whey and soy protein isolates. Shiitake fermented protein has a neutral flavor with no off-taste and excellent solubility, eliminating the grittiness sometimes experienced with pea and rice proteins. The technological advancements used to create the unique blend of shiitake fermented mushroom protein gives consumers an option for a nutritionally superior plant-based protein without sacrificing taste, texture or efficacy.
