    What is Peptone? 

    Peptone is a mixture of amino acids, peptides (which are small chains of amino acids), and a few other nutrients. It's made when enzymes break down natural proteins through a process called hydrolysis. The end result is a product rich in available amino acids and essential nutrients which support healthy mycelium growth when added to agar or liquid culture formulas. 

    MycoPro Peptone is a convenient, high-quality powder product that allows you to use Peptone in your home lab with the same quality of inputs you’d find in a GMP or professional setting.
