Did you know that a mycelium product cannot be labeled as a mushroom?

 

FDA states this clearly in Compliance Policy Guide, Section 585.525.


Be aware that mycelium on grain producers always use the term mushroom for their product sales. This is misleading and is counter to FDA regulations. Be certain of your product labeling.


Special note about mycelium: The supplement market is flooded with mycelia grown on various grain substrates.

These products do not and cannot separate the grain from the mycelia. In most cases, the grain accounts for 50% of the final product and should be considered a carrier or excipient. Tests show that these products are more grain than mycelium.
