Abstract:

The global food and nutritional security of growing population is a great challenge. Mushrooms provide a rich addition to the diet in the form of protein (12-35%), carbohydrates (26-82%), valuable salts, minerals and phenols. They are also good source of vitamins especially those of B complex group but are relatively poor in fat soluble vitamins, A, D, E and K. Among B complex vitamins, mushrooms are especially rich in thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin and biotin. The present investigation is biochemical analysis through the modified methods in milky mushroom strains. We find out the total phenol was maximum content in strain CI-4 (13.42 µg) followed by CI-15 (7.70µg), CI-13 (3.73µg), CI-18 (3.15µg) and CI-14(2.37µg). In protein content highest content in strain CI-4 (0.19 mg/g) while lowest in strain CI-14 (0.06 mg/g) respectively. The carbohydrates content was highest in strain CI-13 (1.27 mg/g) while minimum for strain CI-4 (0.86 mg/g) on fresh weight basis of milky mushroom.
