6 Mushroom-Enhanced Foods We Can't Live Without
Mushroom products and foods “enhanced” with mushroom powders are filling up supermarket shelves. Here are a few newly launched items we like—though we can’t vouch for their health claims.
Mushroom Coffee Mix
Four Sigmatic’s instant packets get convenience points; add milk to mask any hint of fungi. As for its “productivity support,” a cup of joe does that, too.

Reishi Chocolate Elixir
Can Rebbl’s new drink promote “healthy aging” or “strong cardiovascular function”? Not sure. But the tasty infused coconut milk has half the calories of chocolate milk.

A gentle poach keeps the chicken breast moist and tender, so it's easy to pull apart before you arrange your quesadilla.
Pan's Mushroom Jerky
What these meaty shiitake stems lack in protein (almost 10g fewer than meat versions), they make up with 4g more fiber and less sodium.

Purely Elizabeth Bars
Fungi powder meets granola in a bar. But can a “brain bar” boost cognition? Probably a stretch. Still, you get 5g to 7g protein per bar.
Rising Moon Ravioli
This is classic, fresh wild mushroom ravioli that only promises “savory, earthy flavor.” Compared to cheese varieties, this ravioli saves you 100 calories and 10g fat.
Mushroom Kettle Chips
Vegan Rob’s “antioxidant-rich” chips are no different in calories, sodium, and potassium than regular kettle chips, but they satisfy a salt craving.
