Abstract:

The experiment was carried Measuring activity of enzyme like exoglucanase, endoglucanase and xylanase and the nutritional quality of different strains of milky mushroom namely viz., CI-1, CI-2, CI-3, MG-4, CI-5 and APK-2 in the study. Among the five strains tested, CI-3 recorded maximum activity of endoglucanase, exoglucanase, and endoxylanase (1.50, 1.02, 1.66 μ moles sugar/min/mg protein,) followed by strain APK-2 (1.22, 0.23and 0.82 μ moles sugar/min/mg protein respectively). The nutrient range of different strain of milky mushroom were found to contain 86.42 to 88.9 per cent moisture, 42.32 to 55.32 per cent total carbohydrates, 18.20 to 24.50 per cent digestible crude protein,3.58 to 4.74 per cent crude fat, 7.91 to 9.84 per cent crude fiber and 8.38 to 9.86 per cent ash content on dry weight basis
