Studies on chemical and mineral evaluation of oyster mushroom
Nagulwar MM and More DR
The present investigation was carried out to study the, chemical and mineral composition of oyster mushrooms. Results obtained indicated that the chemical and mineral composition was reported and results showed that the moisture content 88.80 percent, fat 0.8 percent, carbohydrate 5.1 percent, protein 4.7 percent, and ash 1.6 percent. Potassium content of oyster mushroom was found to be highest 974.67 mg/100gm than rest of other minerals; calcium 24.27 mg/100gm, magnesium 138.57 mg/100gm, zinc 3.67 mg/100gm and iron 18.27 mg/100gm. Finally, it can be concluded from the obtained results that oyster mushroom was high in nutrients that makes it potential source for value addition in food commercialization.
