So, what is mycelium?

Mycelium is the vegetative part of fungus that grows beneath the soil or on organic matter. It consists of a vast network of tiny thread-like structures called hyphae that work together to absorb nutrients from their environment. Mycelium has been gaining attention as an innovative food ingredient due to its unique texture and umami flavor, which can be used as a meat substitute in vegan and vegetarian dishes. In addition, mycelium has potential health benefits such as boosting the immune system and reducing inflammation. Its versatility and sustainability make it an exciting option for the future of food.
