I started attending this show with my parents when I I was a kid, and it’s amazing to launch this new line of plant-based probiotic drinks that showcase the many attributes of adaptogenic mushrooms. With so much focus on the mental health crisis and promising research around the functional ingredients of mushrooms, I’m proud to offer these wellness beverage options that anyone can enjoy and add to their self-care toolkits.”

According to Allied Market Research, the global functional mushroom market is expected to reach $19.33 billion by 2033. The increased interest in functional mushrooms is driven by their safe and natural benefits that have long been a staple of traditional medicine. Supermarket News noted that mushrooms, oats and immunity are among the top natural industry trends for 2022, and that mushrooms saw explosive growth in 2020, driven in large part by interest in the immune health, accounting for 61% of mushroom sales that year.
