Bottom Line: The pileus and gills were protein and lipid rich and stripe was carbohydrate and fiber-rich.The moisture content of mushrooms ranged from 86 to 87.5%.Data of this study suggest that mushrooms are rich in nutritional value.

ABSTRACT
Mushroom cultivation has been started recently in Bangladesh. Awareness of the nutritional and medicinal importance of mushrooms is not extensive. In this study, the nutritional values of dietary mushrooms- Pleurotus ostreatus, Pleurotus sajorcaju, Pleurotus florida and Calocybe indica that are very popular among the cultivated mushrooms in Bangladesh have been determined. These mushrooms were rich in proteins (20~25%) and fibers (13~24% in dry samples) and contained a lower amount of lipid (4 to 5%). The carbohydrate contents ranged from 37 to 48% (on the basis of dry weight). These were also rich in mineral contents (total ash content is 8~13%). The pileus and gills were protein and lipid rich and stripe was carbohydrate and fiber-rich. The moisture content of mushrooms ranged from 86 to 87.5%. Data of this study suggest that mushrooms are rich in nutritional value.

Nutritional variation in different parts of Calocybe indica. Bars show mean + SEM of 5 trials. Data was analyzed by one way ANOVA and then post hoc LSD test. * indicates that difference is significant at P ≤ 0.05 level.

Figure 4: Nutritional variation in different parts of Calocybe indica. Bars show mean + SEM of 5 trials. Data was analyzed by one way ANOVA and then post hoc LSD test. * indicates that difference is significant at P ≤ 0.05 level.

Mentions: Figures 1~4 show the variation of nutritional parameters among the different parts of mushrooms. The pileus and gills are richer in protein (about 40~60%), lipid (30~60%) and ash content (5~10%) than stipe. On the other hand the stipe is richer in fiber (40~50%) and carbohydrate content (10~15%). The variation in protein, fat and fiber content is significant with the exception of C. indica in which protein variation is not significant. This result is agreeable with data collected from the previous study (Watanabe et al., 1994; Justo et al., 1999; Shin et al., 2007; Dundar et al., 2008).
