These gelatin-free goodies deliver a spectrum of mushroom extracts in a sweet, chewy daily supplement that makes consuming functional fungi delicious.

A spoonful of mushroom magic 

Have you noticed how mushroom gummies supplements are taking over the vitamin aisle lately? Gourmet gummy recipes that blend hair, skin, nail, joint, antioxidant, or metabolism-boosting compounds into natural fruit gel bases are letting consumers ditch boring pills and chalky powders.  Plus, the whimsical shapes, colors, and flavors make achieving better beauty, health, and performance FUN rather than feeling like a chore. This increased mainstream appeal and ENJOYABILITY of multicentre gummy treats has laid the groundwork perfectly for supercharging the next evolution of supplements with mushrooms!

Mushroom gummies build upon people’s positive associations with childhood candies and call upon sensory nostalgia while DELIVERING potent wellness benefits. The gel format TAPERS the often strong, bitter medicinal taste of reishi, cordyceps, lion’s mane, and other mushroom varieties into pleasant fruited confections. This makes mushrooms accessible for the first time to the masses who may have avoided the polarizing PUNGENCY of liquid tonics and powders before.

A daily dose of fungi for everyone

Have we sold you yet that mushroom gummy innovation will soon be as ubiquitous as apple cider vinegar shots and matcha lattes at your local upscale grocer? Well, you heard it here first. ‘Shrooms are infiltrating every aisle and carving a permanent place for fungi in the specialty food landscape.

While purist naysayers argue that whole mushrooms or liquid tonics boast higher concentrations of raw medicinal power, let’s get real. How many of us are going to eat re-fried reishi chips or add cordyceps crackers to our charcuterie boards (though props if you do!)? Supplementing with mushrooms needs to FIT into existing habits and appeal to more PALATES if global functional food forecasts are expected to come to fruition.
