Organic Turkey Tail Mushroom Powder
How to Use
Frequently asked questions
Q. I’ve seen that other products contain mycelium. Why don’t yours?
It might surprise you to find out that most “mushroom” products on the market don’t come from actual mushrooms. In fact, most sellers have never grown a single mushroom. Instead, they grow mycelium, which is basically the roots of the mushroom.
Mycelium is grown on grain, like rice, millet, rye, or wheat. Many sellers grind up the mycelium along with the grain of, say, Shiitake. The truth is, what the customer ends up with is a product that contains few (if any) beneficial mushroom compounds. Instead, they’ve paid top dollar for a jar full of (mostly) starch.
Look for the words 100% fruit body to ensure you’re buying the good stuff!
Q. But why do other sellers insist that mycelium is the best bit of the mushroom?
Because it’s cheaper and quicker to grow, of course! The problem is, there isn’t hard evidence to show that mycelium is overly beneficial to humans. Graham (our founder and 40-year mycologist) has made the conscious choice to exclude mycelium from his products.
Mycelium is full of salt and carbs and offers no proven benefits.
It’s impossible to separate the mycelium from its growing medium (often rice or grain) — including mycelium in mushrooms powders inevitably introduces fillers that definitely aren’t beneficial
Q. Where do you grow your mushrooms?
We grow our own mushrooms in Western Australia's most high-tech mushroom growing lab. But there are some that we can't grow ourselves because of our climate and conditions. In this case, we import mushrooms from certified organic growers. This means our customers get the best possible mushrooms.
I actually bought this for my sister, early days yet as far as effect on her particular condition.. friends have had and are still having fantastic results!.
I have been taking Turkey Tail mushrooms since I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I certainly had an easier journey through Chemo than many others and feel that this helped me through this difficult time.
Well worth trying! Fast delivery, great product! Hope it helps why I am taking it, but love this product
Loving my turkey tail powder. Seems to really help microbiome and digestion.
First time i got this to try was on our WA trip at a market in Albany. Back in Sydney easy ordering on line and quick with postage. Thankyou
I seem to have a lot more energy since starting the powder for breakfast with yogurt and blueberries. Hopefully it will help to combat my level 4 melanomas as well.
