Two edible mushrooms Agaricus bisporus and Pleurotus ostreatus species are the most acceptable species among the cultivated mushroom, and have been revered for their immense health benefits due to their specific biochemical compounds that are responsible for improving human health. The two edible mushrooms were studied to obtain basic information on biochemical properties that are helpful in studying their nutritional value. The total soluble sugar, protein, phenol, and starch content of dry and fresh of these two edible mushrooms were estimated, which ranged from 14.10 ± 0.21 to 50.53 ± 0.16 mg/g,2.01 ± 0.00 to 12.86 ± 0.23 mg/g, 1.78 ± 0.02 to 5.75 ± 0.12 mg/g, 4.03 ± 0.24 to 29.70 ± 0.17 mg/g, respectively. Furthermore in this study protein showed a strong positive correlation with phenols (0.99) which influences the structural, functional and nutritional properties of mushrooms.The increasing awareness about high nutritional value of mushrooms can be an important ingredient in food industry and as an alternate to non-vegetarian foods.
