Goodbye, caffeine shakes and sugar highs!
I was introduced to Four Sigmatic’s mushroom coffee by a good friend who spoke really highly of it. I remember asking whether or not it tasted like mushrooms, while I was trying to figure out what made this coffee so special. Turns out it doesn’t taste like mushrooms at all, but they —Chaga—are a powerful, immune-supporting Four Sigmatic food and, guess what? Organic coffee plus Chaga is delicious and amazingly good at balancing caffeine.
How it started
Four Sigmatic started back in Finland, where saunas outnumber cars and people love coffee as much as they love nature. So much so that Finnish grandparents brewed a coffee replacement out of mushrooms during WWII.
Tero Isokauppila founded the company in 2012. Four Sigmatic is a functional foods company that wants to make the world’s most studied and nutrient dense foods more delicious and easier to consume. They’ve crafted crash-free coffee, almost-unbelievable plant protein, and other elevated essentials to work wonders all day.
Tero is an expert in all things related to nutrition, health, and wellness. He is the author of best-selling book Healing Mushrooms, an educational cookbook from Avery Publishing.
What the heck is a Four Sigmatic food?
It’s simple (and a lil’ nerdy). They’re the 100 most-studied, most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. Here’s a graph:
Science time: when you plot out nutrition, each “sigma” equals how far a food is from the average. Four Sigmatic foods are much, much, much, much better. You might even say they’re the best.
What does Four Sigmatic mean and where can i get some?
It’s statistics-speak for the best of the best foods. Four Sigmatic foods are the most nutrient dense, most studied foods on the planet. Only 100 foods fall into this category and those are the foods you’ll find in these products. Some you’ve probably seen at the grocery store: coffee, green tea, cacao, hemp, and coconut. And some you probably haven’t: Reishi, Cordyceps, Ashwagandha. The name Four Sigmatic means these 100 foods are four sigmas (or four standard deviations) above average food. It literally doesn’t get any better than that.
Today, Four Sigmatic is thriving with the mission of bringing a little Everyday Magic to the lives of all. I heard the team has a sauna in their office. They also have a bus named Mauri (the Mushroom Mobile) and Maisa, the electric Mushroom Moped (Mauri’s sister). They travel around the U.S. serving up elevated essentials on wheels and on top of that they source their ingredients from the highest quality locations around the world. And are always looking for better, more local options. If you have an idea, hit them up.
