Does Pan's Mushroom Jerky taste like beef jerky?

Pan's Mushroom Jerky is a mushroom snack with a delicious umami taste and satisfying meaty texture. Shiitake mushrooms have a lot of umami, which is a savory, earthy flavor also found in beef, cheese, soy sauce, and seafood. Also shiitake mushrooms have a fleshy and fibrous texture that provides a satisfying chew.

For these reasons, shiitake mushrooms make for a satisfying jerky. Please note, Pan's Mushroom Jerky isn't trying to completely imitate beef, and you should expect to experience the shiitake mushroom flavor and texture come through in our product - which we love and embrace!

Can you be more specific about allergy information?

Our facility is not certified allergen-free or gluten-free, which means outside food can enter the facility through new product testing, employee meals, a potential co-packer, etc. And so, there is a risk of cross-contamination with any allergens.  We apologize about the inconvenience. We hope to have these certifications in the future as we grow. 

All of our flavors contain coconut sugar. The FDA classifies coconuts as a tree nut; however coconut sugar comes from the nectar of the coconut flower. Since this raw material comes from the flower, and not the coconut, it does not fall under the same allergen restrictions. However, we do want to communicate all of this information to be totally transparent about our ingredients and any allergy concerns.  

For a list of ingredients, please see below.
