The mushrooms you buy in stores are only the above-ground part of a much bigger underground organism known as mycelium.
Think of it kinda like mushrooms are the ‘fruit’ and mycelium is the ‘tree’.
Mycelium is an incredible renewable resource that can be used for all sorts of things including building furniture, bricks, and even artificial leather.
And now it’s also building the future of food with Mamu! Myceli-yum!
Mamu was born when a Michelin Star Chef and a team of mushroom experts started talking about the future of sustainable food. Made simply from mushrooms and chickpeas, it's a first-of-its-kind gourmet food source created specifically for use in modern kitchens everywhere.
In addition to a special focus on texture (amazing), and flavor (delicious), Mamu is is a naturally nutritious food. It's non-GMO, gluten-free, soy-free, cholesterol-free and has no known allergens.
Plus it makes a mean taco.
Mamu is made from gourmet mushrooms. So it's naturally packed with umami, which gives Mamu its distinct savory flavor and depth. Mamu is delectably juicy and retains moisture throughout the cooking process. The end result? Mouthwatering meals that are destined to delight.
Mamu is designed to be a workhorse ingredient in the kitchen. It can be baked, grilled, braised, stir-fried, poached, broiled and seared to yield delicious textures and aromas. And because it absorbs flavors quickly, the only limit to creating delicious dishes is your imagination.
Mamu really is a new pillar of food — a ready-to-use kitchen staple with unlimited culinary applications.
Mamu is as natural as it gets. It contains just a few key ingredients: 3 kinds of mushrooms and chickpeas. Every serving has 18% of your daily fiber requirement, and the mushrooms in Mamu are rich in vital nutrients, prebiotics and antioxidants.
Talk about a superfood!
Mamu is far more sustainable than other agricultural food sources.
As a spore-to-store product, we grow our own ingredients and turn them into Mamu onsite. And our vertically farmed mushrooms require only a fraction of the water and energy.1
