ABSTRACT

Dietary fiber, raw fiber, fructose, glucose, sucrose, maltose, vitamin A (retinol), B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B6 (pyridoxine), and niacin contents of dried cultivated mushroom species Agaricus bisporus (white and brown), Lentinus edodes, and Pleurotus ostreatus were determined and evaluated for nutrient and chemical composition. Assays of dried mushroom samples were carried out after the drying process. Dried shiitake samples showed the highest dietary fiber and raw fiber content (23.23 ± 0.018 and 9.71 ± 0.039 μg/100 g, respectively). Mushrooms in this study were valuable sources of vitamins such as retinol, thiamine, riboflavin, pyridoxine, and niacin. A. bisporus contained the highest vitamin A content (43.93 ± 1.85 μg/100 g) and shiitake had the highest contents of thiamine and pyridoxine (0.63 ± 0.012 and 0.56 ± 0.01 mg/100 g, respectively). Portobello had the highest riboflavin and niacin contents (0.90 ± 0.015 and 8.37 ± 0.17 mg/100 g, respectively).
