Our name is a super geeky way of saying that our company represents only the fifty most researched foods. In science - and especially in the natural sciences - a large enough sample size will usually form a natural distribution. So, if, for example, you compare the nutrient density of all foods, you will see a bell curve form. If you take four standard deviation from the mean, you will have the four sigma foods.

That’s us! The Four Sigmatic core team has known each other for years. Most of our team members were actually roommates in college. We left our well-paid corporate jobs with the likes of Google, Citibank, and Hewlett-Packard to work on behalf of the great mushroom.
Our Mushroom Mission began in the Nordic countries in 2012 and, with the help of our innovative products, we have expanded to more than twenty-five countries in less than four years. In 2014, we relocated our business headquarters to the U.S. Our products launched in the U.S. in January 2015, and it has been quite a journey since then. We’re still a small employee-owned startup … but good things come in small packages, and we truly believe our passion and hard work will help us continue to make a real difference in global health.
