MYCOPURE (GOLDEN MILK)
MycoPure™ Golden Milk are plant-based proteins (pea and rice) fermented from shiitake mushrooms. Shiitake fermented protein contains all 9 essential amino acids, has a high branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) composition, and has a PDCAA (Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score) of 1.00, making it a superior form of plant-based protein that rivals the quality of animal proteins. Further, the fermentation of plant proteins removes anti-nutrients and optimizes the digestibility and nutritional profile.
With a PDCAA score of 1.0, the quality of shiitake fermented protein matches that of whey and soy protein isolates. Shiitake fermented protein has a neutral flavor with no off-taste and excellent solubility, eliminating the grittiness sometimes experienced with traditional pea and rice proteins. The technological advancements used to create the unique blend of shiitake fermented mushroom protein gives consumers an option for a nutritionally superior plant-based protein without sacrificing taste, texture or efficacy
Health Benefits of Mushrooms
Beyond being a source of protein, medicinal mushrooms offer an array of health benefits and have numerous applications due to their rich content of antioxidants, including phenolics, flavonoids, carotenoids, and ascorbic acid. These compounds may help reduce oxidative stress, excessive levels of which are associated with numerous chronic health conditions, such as metabolic disease, heart disease, neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, premature aging and some cancers. Beyond their antioxidant activity, medicinal mushrooms have biologically active components with a wide range of beneficial activities, including anti-tumor, immunomodulating, cardiovascular, anti-hypercholesterolemic, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-parasitic, anti-fungal, detoxification, hepatoprotective, and anti-diabetic effects.
