SUPERFOOD - WHY THE MUSHROOM REALLY IS A 'LITTLE WHITE WONDER'

Scelta unravelled the DNA of the white button mushroom and discovered that this mushroom was packed with interesting nutrients that are valuable to people’s lifestyle and diet.

We took this as a base for future product development. It all started with translating the amino acid glutamate and the RNA 5′-nucleotides: inosinate and guanylate, into our umami product.  The result? An innovative, highly healthy taste enhancer.

After that we continued with ergosterol, the precursor of vitamin D. Which has already become one of the most vital vitamins in our diet.

We focus on developing healthier, tastier foods and improving nutrition within the ever changing, ever more demanding global markets.  Our focus is on natural ingredients, flavour diversity, plant-based benefits and reducing the usage of salt and sugar all provided with total transparency.
