Functional Mushrooms

Through our dedication to bringing inspiration and innovation to functional ingredients, we are excited to expand our previously botanic-focused portfolio with the addition of fungi.

Nordic Grown Organic Mushroom Extracts

For thousands of years, cultures around the world have embraced mushrooms for various health and healing applications, inspiring us to do the same. Mushrooms are some of the most incredible organisms on the planet, containing compounds both essential to the ecosystem and our health.

We are proud to partner with award-winning mushroom biotechnologists in Finland to responsibly source high-quality, organic mushroom extracts, including Lion’s Mane, Reishi, Chaga, Cordyceps, Shiitake, and Maitake. These species contain unique combinations of adaptogenic, antioxidant, nootropic, or other benefits that support a healthy, balanced body and lifestyle.

The Nordic Advantage

Finland has the cleanest air in the world, according to the World Health Organization. Because fungi are adept bioaccumulators and absorb even more from their environments than plants do, air quality is crucial for their health. This makes Finland one of the best locations in the world to grow and cultivate mushrooms, and where we are proud to source ours from.


Traceability – We only use Nordic grown mushrooms and can pinpoint the precise origin of every mushroom, so from the spore to shelf, you can show off the proud heritage of Nordic mushrooms.

Transparency – Our commitment to quality is clear through vertical integration in sustainable sourcing and highly regulated mushroom selection. Our extracts are free from excipients or added grain substrates.

Quality & Safety – AFS Nordic Mushrooms are GRAS for safe use in approved food and beverage applications. All mushrooms are certified organic and third-party tested for purity, ensuring they are free from contaminants and pathogens using proven validation methods.
