City of Industry, CA—AIDP has announced an exclusive sales distribution agreement for Functional Fungi organic mushroom nutraceuticals.
A press release on the topic explains that mushroom ingredients are growing as a category and appearing in beverages, supplements, and functional foods.
Functional Fungi offers a line of organic, multi-patented mushroom powders produced in its own U.S.-based, indoor growing, drying, and manufacturing operation. The mushrooms are grown using patented and patent pending processes that include the use of purple corn as a substrate, as opposed to nutrient-poor substrates such as rice or sawdust, the press release states. The company uses ByoDry technology that helps preserve naturally occurring polysaccharides.
“We are excited to add the line of Functional Fungi to the AIDP portfolio. This trending ingredient has a wide range of applications for our customers,” said Mark Thurston, President of AIDP, in the press release. “Functional Fungi provides the highest quality, organic mushroom powders in a wide variety of historically proven strains.”
“AIDP is the perfect partner for Functional Fungi,” added Jordan Rubin, Head of Formulation. “AIDP customers align with Functional Fungi and have a great opportunity to include them in supplement, beverage and functional food formulations.”
