We believe that the world’s most pressing food challenges can be solved by mushroom fermentation. Our mission is to harness the power of mushrooms to enrich lives around the world and we hire the world's best and brightest people to help make this future a reality.
We started MYCO with the vision to shake up the food industry. With only 12% of the U.S. population considered metabolically healthy and with obesity and diabetes reaching epidemic proportions we knew there had to be a better way to make healthy food more accessible and delicious.
How Do We Solve The Sugar Epidemic?
Our original mission was to find a way to solve the sugar epidemic. In our research we discovered a mushroom extract that helps to lessen the need for sugar by blocking the negative flavors from being perceived. This is only the first step, with future innovations promising game changing potential.
How Do We Feed An Exponentially Growing Population?
It is estimated that by as early as 2040 we will be unable to support the population with enough protein to sustain life. Our first discovery allowed us to unlock the nutritional quality of plant proteins in a sustainable creating the platform essential for scaling to a global population.
It is estimated that 1/3 of all the food produced is wasted. We are actively working on finding new ways to reimagine how our food system works, discovering powerful ways to up-cycle side streams.
