Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the recommended serving size?
Add one teaspoon (4g) daily to your favourite juice, smoothie, protein shake, tonic, or a dash to any meal or recipe. We recommend that you double your serving for the first 2 weeks to accelerate your results.
Fermented foods generally retain more of their natural nutrients for longer periods, are more easily digested and absorbed into the body, and contain prebiotics and probiotics to support internal microflora and assist the body’s immune system.
For over 8,000 years, humans have harnessed the ancient art of fermentation to preserve the nutritional potency of foods - increasing bioavailability, assisting digestive function and adding prebiotics to help balance healthy intestinal flora.
Today fermented foods and drinks such as miso, kimchi, kombucha, yogurt and sauerkraut (amongst others) are recognized for their benefits for gut health, the digestive system and beyond.
Ongoing research indicates strong links between the health of the gut’s microbiome and many chronic conditions as well as physical and mental health.
Our organic mushroom powders are easily added to juices, smoothies, protein shakes, tonics, or any meal. They are dehydrated and finely milled to minimize particle sizes and maximize bioavailability.
While capsules may be slightly more portable, they’re designed to work their way through your system and dissolve the capsule barrier before they start getting absorbed. Capsules need to be small (generally less than 1g), requiring you to swallow a fist-full of them to get your serving in, and they aren’t designed for taste.
Powdered supplements, however, don’t have a barrier. The only barrier is your mouth. So just add to your morning smoothie, juice or tonic and drink it down, or sprinkle on your meal before eating, and your body begins absorbing it right away – which leads to quicker nutrient uptake and benefits.

Why organic and Non-GMO?
In most food and supplement production, it’s now no longer a question that things should be organic. In addition, the “non-GMO” designation is also worth strongly considering for numerous reasons and legitimate concerns about genetically modified crops.
Certain mushrooms hyper-accumulate heavy metals which make them great environmental detoxifiers. However, for human consumption, these same mushrooms should be carefully cultivated to avoid ingesting any toxins they’ve absorbed. Therefore, it’s highly recommended to seek out growers and producers that follow strict methods and practices to ensure product purity.
Our mushrooms are cultured in a controlled environment on 100% certified organic, gluten free and non-GMO whole oats using Solid State Fermentation.
Are EMPOWdER products gluten free?
Our 100% organic fermented mushroom powders are cultivated under controlled conditions on non-GMO gluten free whole oats which have been certified compliant and free of any cross contamination from other grains, and every production lot is tested at a threshold of less than 10 parts per million of gluten (unable to detect any gluten but this is the lowest margin for error the test allows).
Under most countries’ labelling laws, this permits our packaging to state that the products are gluten free, however under Australian FSANZ packaging laws, any product that has any relation to oats at all, irrespective of their certified or tested gluten content, cannot be labelled gluten free.
We take all food intolerances and allergies very seriously and particularly recognise the dangers of gluten allergens for those living with Coeliac Disease. We understand that there have been cases made by the Australian Food and Grocery Council (the AFGC) asking FSANZ to remove oats from the Australian Food Standard list as an allergen, so that we may be in line with international standards when it comes to imported foods. Until this occurs, and even whilst we know that our products do not contain any traces of gluten and are Certified and guaranteed to not contain gluten, we will ensure that our products do not contain the words 'Gluten Free' on any of the labelling going forward.
We do have many highly gluten sensitive customers who use our EMPOWdER products on a daily basis and have never had any report of adverse effects, however we always recommend discussing your personal dietary requirements with a medical practitioner or qualified dietician if you have any concerns.
