Mushroom coffee has emerged to be an alternative to regular coffee in recent times. Mushrooms are considered to be a superfood, with medicinal and revitalizing properties. Mushroom coffee has a lower caffeine content, but provides ample energy comparable to other caffeinated drinks like tea and regular coffee.

 

Traditional Chinese and Japanese medicine incorporates the usage of mushrooms since generations to cure certain ailments. Medicinal mushrooms are used in various forms like dried mushrooms or mushroom powdered in Asian medicine. Mushroom coffee is nothing but powdered mushrooms mixed with regular coffee beans. Hailed as an emerging health food, mushroom coffee is making inroads in the consumer markets worldwide.

 

There are many benefits derived from the consumption of mushroom coffee. For one, it is low on caffeine which is a major ingredient that harms the human body, if consumed in excess. Mushroom coffee has around half the caffeine content present in regular coffee, and an equivalent caffeine content of green tea. It has the same revitalizing properties as regular tea or coffee, which makes it a great healthier substitute. Mushroom coffee is slowly penetrating the gourmet and health foods market.
