About Us

Blackgold is passionate about sharing the potential health benefits of our special mushroom blends with the world. Our goal is to make it easy for you to incorporate this into your daily routine, just like enjoying a cup of coffee. We believe that everyone deserves to feel their best every day.

How it all began…
My partner and I sought a healthier alternative to caffeine because we were both working long hours and started consuming more coffee that came with feeling the negative effects of caffeine like jitters, crashes, and an upset stomach. We knew there had to be a better way to get the energy we needed without sacrificing our health.
We discovered functional mushrooms, which have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries.
As a second-generation Chinese, I realized that mum had been incorporating functional mushrooms into my diet since I was a child. She would add them to traditional soups, which I didn't always appreciate. However, I now understand the cultural significance of these mushrooms used in traditional Chinese medicine.
My partner and I were interested in the potential health benefits of functional mushrooms and started adding them to our morning coffee. We found that they added a rich, earthy flavor to our coffee and tasted a lot better than mum’s soups (Sorry mum!).
Slowly we stopped drinking coffee altogether and without the negative effects of caffeine we knew we were on to a new routine, one we looked forward to that supported our overall wellbeing that we wanted to share with you.

What’s up with the name Black Gold?
This goes back to when we first discovered the Chaga mushroom with a black-charcoal-like exterior and an orange-gold-like interior. We were so amazed by this discovery that helped reminds us that the best things in life can be unexpected hence the name Blackgold.

Wishing you the best.
