Healthy & Conscious
Always good for you, now better for the planet
Achieving excellence in our products while protecting the environment is our healthy obsession; from start to finish and from the most essential to the smallest details what we do and how we do it defines us:
Organic, non-GMO ingredients
GMP pharmaceutical quality and safety standards
Products suitable for coeliacs, lactose intolerance and vegans
100% plant-based capsules made from cellulose, purified water and carrot concentrate
Paper from sustainable forests (PEFC certified)
… and now, glass replaces recyclable plastic in our packaging
Our next step in going green
Making a difference
We are a Biotech company with a constant R&D activity:
We test our products in vitro and in vivo, as the basis for clinical trials with patients.
Our commitment to quality and traceability is strong and unique:
Our Mico-Quality production process includes up to 3 rounds of analytical control of both raw materials and final products to ensure maximum safety and effectiveness.
Maximum concentration via a dual extraction process: Dual extraction, an exclusive patent-pending process, allows us to more efficiently and sustainably obtain standardised levels of active biomolecules in our medicinal mushrooms at higher concentrations than those offered by other natural products.
Our committment to excellence includes the packaging of our products: introducing glass to care for and protect our formulas, your health, and our planet.
Glass, a material with infinite lives
- Can be reused as many times as desired without loss of quality or function.
- No impact on the product it contains: no flavour transfer to the food or beverages it contains.
- The possibility of infinite reuse reduces CO2 emissions and the consumption of new raw materials to manufacture new packaging.
Science inspires us
Sustainability is at the heart of our actions and our philosophy. In order to preserve nature as we know it, we choose avenues of study that allow us to explore new capabilities of mushrooms, both to improve human health and the environment around us. This is not an option. Only in this way can we create value for society, innovating with solutions based on the knowledge that nature offers us.
Mushrooms for the environment: powerful bioremediatiors
Did you know that mushrooms are invaluable for the recovery and regeneration of soil? Hifas da Terra (HdT) carries out environmental research projects on the recovery of soil contaminated by hydrocarbons and substances derived from mining extraction as well as soil devastated by forest fires. While certain fungi are able to degrade pollutants, others bring life back to inert soils by interracting with the roots of chestnuts, oaks and various conifers. These species of mycorrhizal fungi provide great resistance and vigour to the trees they interract with, helping them to survive in adverse conditions.

We will plant a mycorrhizal tree to help recover damaged soils
Mycorrhization is the natural alliance between mushrooms and tree roots. This synergy protects the tree from diseases and drought, but also increases the size of the tree’s roots and its access to nutrients and minerals. It also supports soil recovery and the creation of new green spaces where new mushrooms, the great natural bioremediators, can grow.
Clean energy and energy saving
The natural greenery that surrounds and characterises HdT headquaters requires excellent management of water resources. To this end, we have a well that collects rainwater which, with the appropriate ozone treatment, serves to supply the company’s main water needs, including dealing with fires. The biomass derived from the maintenance of the forests that surround us is used as the biofuel that generates heat in winter for our radiant natural slate floors.
Our carbon footprint: +O2 -CO2
THE HIFAS GROUP generates more oxygen than it consumes. Thanks to Hifas Foresta, more than 120,000 trees are planted every year. These trees play a major role in the restoration of the landscape and the soil. They also support sustainable economy by generating valuable resources in the countryside for future generations.
Respect for the landscape
In 2028 Hifas da Terra will be 30 years old. By that date our commitment is to generate more oxygen than we consume in all our production processes, eliminate plastic from our products, promote the use of recycled materials and reward attitudes in line with our philosophy. Can we count on your support?
