Mushroom Extract VS Mushroom Powder

Powder Vs Extract

  • If you’re seeking to maximize the amount of beta-glucans you are taking, without a doubt what you’ll want is an extract. 
  • As covered previously, extracts contain up to 15 times more beta-glucans than powders, and are much more easily absorbable due to no longer being bound to the rest of the mushroom. 
  • Extracts also typically contain a very high amount of novel antioxidants in comparison to powders, which help combat the negative effects of oxidative stressors (the primary cause of increased ageing in cells).

  • Another main reason you may want to pick an extract over a powder is because extracts contain less impurities, which is important if you are choosing to take mushroom supplements for a particular effect, whether adaptogenic or not. 
  • On the other hand, depending on the kind of mushroom and the manufacturer, powders can also often contain high amounts of fillers which offer no benefits. 
  • This is because the main filler (typically composed of rye barley or rice) that is used is the difficult-to-separate growth medium of the mushroom, as well as being normally too depleted to continue to grow new mushrooms - and in some cases it is impossible to harvest and powder the mushroom without including it, since the fruiting body is too small to efficiently remove independently from the mycelium, which itself is attached throughout the growth medium. 
  • High quality powders made of mushrooms with large fruiting bodies however typically contain no fillers, as it is easier to harvest only the fruiting body, and the manufacturer will simply add fresh new feedstock to the growth medium so as to keep the current mycelium alive so it’ll produce more mushrooms.

  • So you may be wondering at this point “why are fillers so bad if they contain the mycelium anyway?”. Well, the truth is it’s not necessarily abadthing in and of itself. 
  • The problems are that Mycelium frequently is counted along with the total amount of mushroom fruiting body you get from the powder, even though the two are not the same.
  • Pill / dose burden increases since you have to take many pills or a lot of powder for desired benefits.
  • The mycelium doesn’t contain most of the nutrients of the mushroom, and is less studied and understood in relation to possible health benefits compared to the fruiting bodies of the mushroom.

Mushroom Extract VS Mushroom Powder
Mushroom Extract VS Mushroom Powder


  • Overall, extracts tend to be better than powders when it comes to taking mushroom supplements for certain desired effects, as powders often contain too little of the compound readily available for your metabolism to easily absorb. 
  • This is especially true if you want to take mushroom supplements for the express purpose of getting as many fungal beta-glucans as possible. 
  • Powders are best used if you have a primarily plant based diet since they’ll add nutrients that are more difficult to get from other vegetables and fruits. You can of course get the benefits of both by taking supplements which contain both extracts and powders mixed together, which is actually something done by a wide range of manufacturers.

What is the major problems in mushroom cultivation?

Problems and solutions in the cultivation of the mushroom including: a) Mycelium fails to form Improper initiation strategy.  Solutions : consult parameter of growth. Alter moisture, temperature, light, carbon dioxide, etc.  Note : If the substrate is too moist, decrease moisture b) Chlorinated or contaminated water.  Solutions :  Use activated charcoal water filters to eliminate chemical contaminants or any other ways of simple or appropriate technology. c) Bad substrate.  Solutions : Check substrate. Spread the substrate and remix the substrate, package again, make sure all raw materials are good and fresh.   Note : It is necessary to pasteurize immediately after bagging otherwise fermentation gas will slow down the rate of growth of mycelium or stop mycelium growth. d) Bad pasteurization.  Solutions : Check method of pasteurization. Release all air and make sure there is continuous steam before starting pasteurization for a period of 3h. e) The substrate in the bag is too hot when i

Oyster mushroom vs button mushroom nutrition | Nutritional comparison between oyster and button mushrooms

Oyster mushrooms are beloved the world over for their delicate texture and mild, savory flavor.  Oyster mushrooms are more expensive than white button mushrooms but less so than rarer mushrooms like morels, and take little prep since they can be used whole or chopped.                                Oyster: “These are low in calories and rich in fiber, protein, selenium [which may help prevent cancer], niacin [aka, vitamin B3] and riboflavin [aka, vitamin B2].Oyster mushrooms also contain an active compound called benzaldehyde, which has potent antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Additionally, research shows oyster mushrooms may significantly reduce blood glucose levels. They have also been shown to help lower cholesterol levels.”    White Button: White button mushrooms represent 90 percent of the total mushrooms consumed. “They’re a good source of potassium, B vitamins, calcium, phosphorus [which supports bone and teeth health] and iron. They also contain selenium, a trace
