The FreshCap Difference
We’re mushroom nerds, and that means quality is a really big deal to us.
Our mushrooms are organically grown, carefully extracted, and analytically tested to guarantee high levels of active beneficial compounds. No grain fillers, no shortcuts, no funny stuff. We focus on quality, so you can actually feel a difference.

Against the Grain
What we all think of as a mushroom is technically called a “fruiting body”. Similar to plants, mushrooms also have an intricate root system known as “mycelium”. You can kind of think of it like the difference between an apple (fruiting body) and an apple tree (mycelium).
So if you want the benefits of mushrooms, you need to use the part of the mushroom that actually contains the beneficial compounds. Makes sense, right?
Well believe it or not, many of the mushroom supplements on the market are made of something called “mycelium on grain”, which is just mushroom mycelium that has been grown out on a grain like rice or oats. It’s cheaper and faster to grow – but the end result is a product that is mostly grain starch, which doesn’t really contain any of the mushroom-y goodness you’re looking for. Yeah. Crazy.
At FreshCap, we believe in mushrooms that are actually made from mushrooms. That’s why we make our extracts from whole mushroom fruiting body, without the use of grain based fillers. It’s a difference you can feel.Explore Mushrooms
The magic of mushrooms
Functional mushrooms are filled with powerful beta-glucans, triterpenes and other unique compounds. But all that mushroom magic is normally locked up inside the tough cell walls of the fruiting body.
FreshCap mushrooms go through a multi-step extraction process that makes those compounds bio-available, so you can reap the benefits.
Every batch is tested, with guaranteed levels printed right on the label – showing you exactly what we’re made of.
The World’s Best Mushrooms
You deserve mushrooms that will actually make a difference. Mushrooms that are grown organically, sustainably, and with the care and attention that can only come from generational family farms dedicated to quality.
You deserve the best mushrooms in the world.
That’s why we source our mushrooms from deep in the mountains and forests of China, a place with a rich history of mushroom cultivation. Using 100% certified organic farming methods, our cultivation partners grow whole fruiting body mushrooms naturally and sustainably.
But we don’t stop there. Quality can be quantified. That’s why we test our mushrooms for beneficial compounds like beta-glucans, and ensure safety by also testing for heavy metals, microbial contamination and pesticides before processing and packaging in our US based GMP certified facility.
We test our products extensively through third-party labs to ensure quality, efficacy, and peace of mind. Here’s what we test for:
Pathogens & Allergens
Every batch is tested to ensure our products are safe from harmful bacterial and microbial contamination. We also test to ensure our products are gluten free.
Our mushrooms are grown on natural materials and thoroughly tested for heavy metals using rigorous standards before and after packaging in our US based GMP certified facility.
The best mushrooms in the world should be both safe and effective. That’s why we test for guaranteed amounts of active compounds like beta-glucans, triterpenes and cordycepin.
Quality mushrooms are grown organically, without the use of pesticides. Our mushrooms are tested for pesticides to ensure nothing but pure, organic whole fruiting body extracts are used in our products.
