Coriolus - No Novel Food

The FNMD is looking for supporters!

You are sure to have already heard of the medicinal mushroom Coriolus (Trametes versicolor), which is one of the most popular medicinal mushrooms.

However, strict directives are in place in the EU that can impede the sale of this mushroom by law. This means that Coriolus might not be available for all of us in the future!

Help the FNMD to create a clear legal basis that will continue to secure the sale of Coriolus in the EU!

The Federation of Nutritional Mushroom Distributors e.V. (FNMD) was founded by a group of manufacturers and distributors of medicinal mushroom products in order to make the distribution of medicinal mushrooms legally secure at a European level, which we at mycotrition very much welcome!

 Can you answer ‘yes’ to one of the two questions below?
Then you are among the important people who can significantly influence the market for medicinal mushrooms.


Did you buy or consume Coriolus versicolor before 15 May 1997?




Are you aware of any people and/or companies that imported or bought Coriolus versicolor for human consumption before 15 May 1997?


What is known as the ‘Novel Food’ regulation aims to protect consumers from untested, novel foods by means of an authorisation procedure. This regulation has existed since 15 May 1997 and does not apply to food products introduced prior to this date.

We generally consider this a good thing, but in our view, Coriolus has been wrongly classified as a novel food! We have information from consumers that Coriolus was already being sold and consumed in Europe in the early 1990s.

The more people that confirm this in the survey, the greater the chance of changing the current status as a ‘novel food’. Every vote counts!
