We’ve launched! Get the benefits of mushrooms in your diet today.
Mushrooms are a hot trend right now for a good reason. They not only taste great in all kinds of dishes, but they are also packed with health benefits with medicinal properties. Filled with vitamins, nutrients and minerals, exotic culinary mushrooms can also transform a dish from ordinary to extraordinary.
We’ve been growing 5 varieties of fresh, locally grown semi-exotic mushrooms in Calgary since January 2021. Our mushrooms are grown indoors on wood pulp and our process is 100% chemical free. You can find our mushrooms in select local retailers and restaurants.
Lion’s Mane and assorted oyster varieties, including:
- Blue Oyster
- Pink Oyster
- Elm Oyster
- King Oyster
Here are some of the many benefits of exotic, culinary mushrooms:
- Mushrooms and Aging: Mushrooms contain powerful antioxidants that actively fight the aging process. When eaten regularly, mushrooms can be a part of your healthy routines to optimize how you look and feel.
- Mushrooms and Mental Health: One study has shown that eating ¾ cup servings of mushrooms twice a week is associated with better cognitive function and mood support.
- Mushrooms and Sodium: Mushrooms are delicious on their own, but when added to a larger recipe they can actually reduce the amount of salt normally required. This is due to the rich savoury taste provided from just the Mushrooms on their own.
- Mushrooms and Energy: Mushrooms help provide the vitamins that support red blood cells as they gather oxygen and carry it through the bloodstream. This helps promote a consistent supply of energy through the day.
