Potential raw materials
Ganoderma lucidum (Leyss. ex) is a fungus belonging to the family of porous fungi Fr.) Karst.) Dry fruiting bodies of Ganoderma sinensis Zhao, Xu et Zhang. The functional components in Ganoderma lucidum are Ganoderma polysaccharides and triterpenes, which synergistically have antiviral and anti-tumor effects.

For example, the functional mushroom coffee brand FOURSIGMATIC surpassed Starbucks/Nestle in sales on Amazon in 2020. According to market data released by SPINS, sales of mushrooms in natural retail channels in the United States increased by 16.1% in 2021.

In China's traditional concept of "medicine and food are of the same origin", Ganoderma lucidum is regarded as a high-end health food and is often used in the form of Tonic Diet, medicinal wine and other products. The gap between domestic and international applications also provides greater potential for the development of functional food ingredients with Ganoderma lucidum as the core.
As one of the nine pilot raw materials for the homology of medicine and food in China, it has been piloted in 16 provinces/regions such as Guizhou, Yunnan, Anhui, and Shandong, and is also one of the most involved raw materials in the pilot region. On December 1, 2020, the Health Commission issued a notice on the directory of five health food ingredients, including coenzyme Q10, broken wall Ganoderma spore powder, spirulina, fish oil, and melatonin, which were included in the health food filing directory.
