WE grow our mushrooms
At Gribb® we grow all our mushrooms throughout their entire life cycle, including the mycelium, the primordia (baby mushrooms) and the fruit body stages (mushroom as we know it) to produce a range of products rich in full-spectrum nutrients with broad health and wellness benefits.
Before getting to know our process better, let's understand some important facts about mushrooms.
mushroom as we know
The part that we all know and identify as a mushroom is called the fruit body that appears above ground. Its function is to produce spores for reproduction. Spores that travel short or long distances and proliferate if soil and atmospheric conditions are favourable.

The mushroom mycelium are like its roots. Two compatible spores combine and form mycelium, which forms hyphae, which expand to create mycelial networks.
Mycelium are fiber-like filaments of fungal cells that consume a source of nutrients known as substrate. The mycelium has developed strong immune and enzyme systems to survive in hostile environments and has compounds unique to this phase of the mushroom life cycle.
Each stage of the cycle of life of mushrooms have unique benefits and nutrients, which is why at Gribb we use the entire mushroom components, including the mycelium and fruit body in all our products
We use organic gluten-free oats to grow our mushrooms. Medium proved to support mushrooms development and increase the potency of mico-compounds
The growth process of our medicinal mushrooms varies from 28 to 90 days, depending on the species, and requires close attention to the parameters of growth
In our process both the fruiting body and mycelial biomass are carefully harvested and processed with heat to breakdown the chitinous cell walls. The whole mushroom is then milled to a fine powder, easily digested and absorbed by our bodies.
