A food source from the ground up.
Literally.

Mamu was born when a Michelin Star Chef and a team of mushroom experts started talking about the future of sustainable food. Made simply from mushrooms and chickpeas, it’s a first-of-its-kind gourmet food source created specifically for use in modern kitchens everywhere.

In addition to a special focus on texture (amazing), and flavor (delicious), Mamu is a naturally nutritious food. It’s non-GMO, gluten-free, soy-free, cholesterol-free and has no known allergens.

Plus it makes a mean taco.

Delicious by nature

Mamu is made from gourmet mushrooms. So it’s naturally packed with umami, which gives Mamu its distinct savory flavor and depth. Mamu is delectably juicy and retains moisture throughout the cooking process. The end result? Mouthwatering meals that are destined to delight.

Simple & versatile.

Mamu is designed to be a workhorse ingredient in the kitchen. It can be baked, grilled, braised, stir-fried, poached, broiled and seared to yield delicious textures and aromas. And because it absorbs flavors quickly, the only limit to creating delicious dishes is your imagination.

Mamu really is a new pillar of food — a ready-to-use kitchen staple with unlimited culinary applications.

Super.
Natural.

Mamu is as natural as it gets. It contains just a few key ingredients: 3 kinds of mushrooms and chickpeas. Every serving has 18% of your daily fiber requirement, and the mushrooms in Mamu are rich in vital nutrients, prebiotics and antioxidants.

Talk about a superfood!

Great for the palate. Great for the planet.

Mamu is far more sustainable than other agricultural food sources.

As a spore-to-store product, we grow our own ingredients and turn them into Mamu onsite. And our vertically farmed mushrooms require only a fraction of the water and energy.1

Mamu comes from “Umami”, reflecting its taste pedigree.
What is umami?
Umami is a Japanese word that translates to ‘deliciousness’. Umami is one of the 5 basic tastes that our tongue can detect (the others are sweet, sour, bitter, and salt). It is naturally present in mushrooms, tomatoes, meats and many fermented foods like cheese.
Is Mamu a prebiotic?
Funny you should ask! Yes, it is! Mamu is naturally fiber-rich (about 18% of your daily requirement per serving). This fiber is largely made of chitin, which is the cell walls of mushrooms and mycelium, and acts as a fuel to help good gut bacteria thrive.
