Frequently asked questions:
1. What is a fruiting body?
A fruiting body is the spore producing body of a fungus. They come in various shapes, sizes and colors. Those with a stalk and a cap are known as mushrooms!
2. How do fruiting bodies form?
As the reproducive vector, fruiting bodies emerge from the mycelium (main body of the fungus usually hidden under soil, trees, and other decaying biomass) subsequent to environmental stimuli — changes in light, CO2, and temperature.
3. What does paramount quality mean?
Paramount quality is our promise to you, our vision of what natural product excellence should be. The sum of efficacy, safety, and consistency.
4. Define Supreme Chain of Custody:
Inorder to achieve paramount quality, we are engaged in the entire vertical– from ingredient cultivation to end product. Control of each step of the supply chain allows us to foster a Total Quality culture where highly skilled operators engage in cultivating and producing reliable excellence.
5. Define Total Quality:
Total Quality is a set of cohesive principles, practices, and techniques implemented holistically in a firm in order to provide the best solutions for one’s customers. Pioneered by the Japanese auto industry, furthered in the US by the works of Deming, Juran, and Crosby, and now– taken into Life Sciences by EMMED.
6. Why USDA organic certification?
With end product safety as a foremost priority, USDA certification reflects our commitment to contaminate free ingredients.
7. Why duel extraction?
Mushroom cell walls are composed of chitin, a carbohydrate material difficult to degrade without proper enzymes and/or energy input. Because the Ganoderma produces a spectrum of compounds with varying degrees of solubility, we have developed a water & ethanol extraction to concentrate and make the compounds of interest more bioavalable.
8. What is USP 31 <2023>?
Microbiological standards set by the United States Pharmacopeia Convetion to ensure end product safety.
