All the mushrooms we use and all the products we make are certified organic 🙂
Organic certification is important for mushroom extracts for several reasons:
Quality and Safety
Organic certification ensures that the mushrooms used for MUSHEEZ products are grown and processed without the use of synthetic chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, or genetically modified organisms (GMOs). This reduces the risk of chemical residues or harmful substances in the final extract, promoting a higher level of safety and quality.
Organic certification requires adherence to sustainable farming practices that prioritise soil and substrate health (which prevent toxin absorption), biodiversity, and ecological balance. By choosing organic mushroom extracts, you support environmentally friendly agricultural practices.
Potential Health Benefits
Organic mushroom extracts are believed to retain more of their natural nutritional and medicinal properties compared to conventionally grown counterparts. The absence of synthetic chemicals means that the mushrooms can develop their full potential in terms of beneficial compounds, such as antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and bioactive substances.
Buyer & Consumer Confidence
Organic certification provides buyers and consumers with confidence that the mushroom extracts they are purchasing meet specific organic standards. It assures them that the product has undergone regular inspections and audits by an authorised certifying body, which verifies compliance with strict organic regulations.
Some consumers choose organic products to support small-scale farmers, sustainable agriculture, and, in our case, family business
