Mushroom Extract Powder

Our mushroom extract powder lends natural umami like characteristics to savory flavor applications.  This earthy cooked mushroom flavor also provides a rich, brothy mouthfeel to various applications.

Used topically as part of a seasoning blend for pizza, pasta, or savory snack foods, our mushroom extract powder can enhance both mouthfeel and taste, given its naturally occurring glutamate levels.

Flavor Enhancement

Our mushroom extract powder can help enhance the flavor of many foods.  Mushrooms allow for lower levels of meat to be used while still providing a great flavor profile. This will reduce sodium, fat, and calories in the food.

Our mushroom powder is a rich source of umami. Umami is the rich meaty and brothy taste sensation that makes many savory foods desirable.  Mushrooms are a great source of glutamic acid which is a building block to many proteins.  This amino acid profile will provide a deeply satisfying flavor that is balanced and full-flavored.

There are many studies into the flavor-enhancing properties of mushrooms.  Our Mushroom extract  will give you these benefits in an easy to use clean label form.

 

Real Natural Mushrooms

There are many types of mushrooms found in nature.  Mushrooms are a type of fungus that grows on the soil or its food source. The most common mushroom is the cultivated white button mushroom. Mushrooms are low calorie but are high in vitamins and minerals. Mushrooms are used extensively in many foods around the world and are commonly a farmed ingredient.

Our mushroom extract powder is made from the Agaricus bisporus mushroom which is sold in three states.

  1. The white immature state is called a common white mushroom, button mushroom, champignon mushroom.
  2. The slightly larger immature brown state is called Italian Brown mushrooms, crimini mushrooms, and baby Bella mushrooms.
  3. The mature much larger brown state are called portabella mushrooms.  These are all the same mushrooms sold at different growth stages.

We use the white common mushroom in our extract powders.  It is light tan in color and provides a mild clean earthy mushroom flavor.
