Cultivation Process of Hericor-MRL™
Mycology Research Laboratories Ltd.´s Hericor powder contains both mycelium and primordia (young fruit body) of Coriolus versicolor and Hericium erinaceus cultivated into a biomass that is grown on a sterilised (autoclaved) substrate under ISO 22000:2018 standards in the EU.
This cultivation process ensures the powder complies with the EU regulation 1881/2006 for contamination of pesticides and heavy metals.
The cultivation system is proprietary, allowing for standardised production of Coriolus versicolor and Hericium erinaceus.
Mycelium biomass of mushrooms offers a mixture of many co-operating and co-related healthful bioavailable ingredients prepared by nature itself – it is thus a truly pure natural product.
Mushrooms spend more than 90% of their life cycle in the mycelium. Since mushrooms cannot produce their own energy through photosynthesis, the mycelium must be able to actively obtain or produce extracellular compounds and metabolites that promote the longevity and vitality of the living mushroom. These properties lie behind the high enzymatic activity of the mycelium, which stays preserved in the carefully processed MRL products.
Manufacturing Process of Hericor-MRL™in powder presentations
The MRL Hericor biomass and all the powder presentations are produced and manufactured in accordance with both EU and UK organic standards.
