Fungi can take many forms, from mushrooms to yeasts, moulds and others. The fungi we use are filamentous, a type of fungi that creates branched microscopic filaments called hyphae. Hyphae can grow into large macroscopic structures called mycelium. A fungal organism is usually divided into two parts: the mycelium and the fruiting body. If you think of mushrooms, the mushroom itself is the fruiting body, while the mycelium is a large fibrous structure found underground from where the fruiting body grows.

  • Our liquid fermentation process enables filamentous fungi to grow mycelium with few or no fruiting bodies, maximising the output. Thanks to our fermentation expertise and in-house laboratory services, we have optimised the process to ensure quality every step of the way


Filamentous fungi contain 45-60% protein and 6-15% fibre in dry weight. Mycoprotein is a complete protein, containing all the essential amino acids. Our fungi contain high levels of vitamins and minerals, such as zinc, vitamin B and vitamin D. 

  • High Protein

  • No Sugar

  • High Fibre

  • Multiple Vitamins


Mycoprotein offers a complete protein, balanced with a good fibre and fat content, without any antinutrients. Packed with amino acids, mycoprotein is more nutritious and sustainable than most other proteins. The Mycorena fungi lab ensures nutritious, high quality products through our many in-house services.

  • Scalable

    The technology can be validated and run at a small scale and up to several thousands of tonnes per year. With volume-based scalability, the fermentation process can be scaled vertically for efficient use of land. Each module is based on established technology for smooth scaling of the process in a fully automated way.

  • Fast Turnover

    The fungi production process is very fast. Fungal mycelium can grow 10 times its size in just one day. This equals tens of tonnes of turnover per day in a typical processing facility.

  • Produce Anywhere

    Fungal fermentation is independent of climate or geographic location. The process can be implemented anywhere in the world and operated with the same efficiency and scalability.
