Boiling Water's Effect on Mushroom Extract Supplements

The brewing temperature's impact on mushroom coffee's efficacy is a common concern among enthusiasts. This guide explains why the typical coffee brewing temperature is optimal for mushroom extracts and extends this understanding to include tea as well.

Understanding the Process:

  1. Extraction Temperature: Our mushroom extracts are processed at 85°C, which is within the optimal 80-100°C range for extracting beneficial compounds, ensuring the preservation of vital nutrients.

  2. Stability of Compounds: The compounds are stabilized during processing, making them resistant to further heat exposure.

Why Coffee Temperature is Ideal:

  1. Average Coffee Temperature: Ranges from 85-95°C, closely aligning with our extraction temperature.

  2. Alignment with Extraction Temperature: Ensures the mushroom nutrients' integrity and potency.

  3. No Degradation of Compounds: The stabilization process during extraction preserves the beneficial elements in our mushroom extracts even at brewed coffee temperatures.

Considerations for Tea:

  1. Tea Brewing Temperatures: While tea is often brewed at slightly lower temperatures, especially varieties like green or white tea, the extracts remain effective. For teas requiring near-boiling temperatures (like black or herbal teas), the extracts integrate perfectly.

  2. Steeping Time and Extract Efficacy: Longer steeping times at appropriate temperatures can even aid in the better release of mushroom compounds, enhancing the tea's health benefits.

  3. Cold Brew Tea: For cold brews, dissolve the mushroom extracts in a small amount of warm water before adding to the cold tea. This ensures uniform distribution of the extracts’ benefits.

Expanded Considerations:

  • Variations in Brewing Methods: Suitable for all brewing methods, maintaining mushroom extracts' efficacy.

  • Adjusting for Personal Preference: Slight temperature variations in your beverage of choice won't significantly impact the mushroom extracts' effectiveness.

The temperature of your brewed coffee or tea is perfectly suited for our mushroom extracts. Enjoy your mushroom beverages knowing you're getting full health benefits. For further inquiries or brewing tips, feel free to contact us.
