  • Patent number: 11343978
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method to prepare a myceliated high-protein food product, which includes culturing a fungi an aqueous media which has a high level of plant protein, for example at least 20 g protein per 100 g dry weight with excipients, on a dry weight basis. The plant protein can include pea, rice and/or chickpea. The fungi can include comprises Lentinula spp., Agaricus spp., Pleurotus spp., Boletus spp., or Laetiporus spp. After culturing, the material is harvested by obtaining the myceliated high-protein food product via drying or concentrating. The resultant myceliated high-protein food product may have its taste, flavor, or aroma modulated, such as by increasing desirable flavors or tastes such as meaty, savory, umami, popcorn and/or by decreasing undesirable flavors such as bitterness, astringency or beaniness. Deflavoring and/or deodorizing as compared to non-myceliated control materials can also be observed. Also disclosed are myceliated high-protein food products.

  • Publication number: 20220095646
    Abstract: Methods, and compositions derived thereof, for preparing a myceliated amino-acid-supplemented high-protein food product having desired digestibility and amino acid content. An aqueous medium comprising a high-protein material is inoculated with a fungal culture to produce a myceliated amino acid-supplemented high-protein food product. The plant protein can include pea, rice and/or chickpea protein. The fungi can include Lentinula spp., Agaricus spp., Pleurotus spp., Boletus spp., or Laetiporus spp. Preferably, the myceliated amino acid-supplemented high-protein food product has reduced bitterness and/or reduced volatile amino-acid-derived aroma compared to high-protein amino acid-supplemented material that is not myceliated.

  • Publication number: 20220030911
    Abstract: Provided is a food composition which include a myceliated high-protein food product and methods to make such compositions, which are mixtures of myceliated high-protein food products and other edible materials. A food composition includes dairy alternative products, ready to mix beverages and beverage bases; extruded and extruded/puffed products; sheeted baked goods; meat analogs and extenders; baked goods and baking mixes; granola; and soups/soup bases. Food compositions also include texturized plant protein which can be used for making meat-structured plant protein meat analog or meat extender products. The food compositions have reduced undesirable flavors and reduced undesirable aromas due to use of myceliated high-protein food products as compared to use of similar high-protein material that is not myceliated.
