Whether you’re making a plant-based shake after a workout, or trying to up your daily protein intake, could mushroom protein powder be your new vegan go-to?

What is mushroom protein powder?

Generally, mushroom protein powder is exactly what you’d expect; It’s dried and powdered mushrooms. It can be made from any type of edible mushroom but you’re most likely to find reishi, lion’s mane, and shiitake varieties used for their high protein and fibre content great for gut and heart health. As well as those high scorers, mushroom protein powder is even considered to provide energy boosts, improve focus, cognition, and even athletic performance.
