Humans have consumed mushrooms for as long as we can remember. Our associations with fungi date back to pre-historic times, when mushrooms were often considered special & even sacred. This connection with mushrooms spans the world over – from the Americas to the deepest parts of Africa, the faraway lands of china & even Europe. Today mushrooms are growing in popularity thanks to an increased push to clean our planet, find healthier foods & develop better medicines.
