Mushrooms are the fleshy, spore-bearing fruiting body of a fungus, typically produced above ground on soil or on its food source. They contain numerous spores, functionally similar to seeds of the higher plants for propagation of fungi.
The economic importance of mushroom lies primarily in their use as food for human consumption. The exotic flavour, taste and fleshiness of mushroom have made it an important delicacy in human diet. Mushroom is considered to be a complete, healthy food and suitable for all age groups. Though, the nutritional value is determined by the type, stage of development and other environmental conditions, mushrooms are rich in proteins, dietary fibre, vitamins and minerals. They have insignificant lipid level and high proportion of polyunsaturated fatty acids resulting in low calorific value. The protein content, though varies greatly in different mushrooms, is usually high. Mushrooms are an excellent source of vitamins especially C and B (Folic acid, Riboflavin, Niacin and Thiamine) and minerals like potassium, sodium and phosphorus. It also contains other essential minerals like Cu, Zn and Mg in traces. Mushrooms are also known to have medicinal values as these have been shown to promote immune function, boost health, lower risk of cancer inhibiting tumour growth and support body’s detoxification mechanism. Fresh mushrooms have very limited life hence processing is recommended to enhance the shelf life. Mushroom, thus has great potential for the production as quality food.
