Advantages of Mycelial Mushrooms


Wild medicinal mushrooms have always been precious commodities in many cultures. As modern scientific research validates their potential as a treatment for myriads of human illnesses, they become even more highly valued and scarce. In some cases, a mushroom could be so over-harvested in the wild that it becomes endangered, such as Cordyceps sinensis. Thus deep-layer fermentation and mushroom farming are the preferred methods of mass-producing medicinal mushrooms without destroying the wild crops. However, deep-layer fermentation is more environmentally friendly than mushroom farming.

Free of Contaminants and Heavy Metal

Deep-layer fermentation technology employs fermentation tank, and all mycelia are grown in a controlled environment ensuring optimal temperature, nutrients, and free of heavy metals. There is also no need for pesticides or fertilizers as in mushroom farming situation, thus no chance for contamination by potentially hazardous chemicals.

Environmentally Friendly

In most first world nations mushroom farmers have to meet a minimum environmental guideline, which though is well intended, is often deficient. Mushroom farming operation and activities invariably create certain impacts on air, soil, and water. The handling, burning, storing, and composting of plant debris as well as manure can contribute to the release of global warming gases, and often produces offensive odors to the neighborhood. Another source of air pollution is from the mist and vapor drift of chemical sprays, which can be hazardous to non-target organisms and workers. The composting, pesticides, manures, and petroleum products are also equally as harmful to the water and soil as to the air. On the other hand, deep-layer fermentation technology has minimal impact to the environment.
