Abstract:

The production of mycelial biomass, endo- and exo-polysaccharides, lipids, protein, polyphenols, amino and fatty acids was investigated for Ganoderma lucidum (five strains) and Lentinula edodes (14 strains). Mycelial biomass and levels of endo- and exo-polysaccharides of G. lucidum were higher on beer wort medium when compared to glucose-peptone medium. All essential amino acids were present in the proteins of all the fungal strains examined. Mycelial proteins of G. lucidum contained a high content of lysine and threonine. Linoleic acid dominated the lipid fraction of G. lucidum and L. edodes mycelia. Carbohydrate analysis of polysaccharides in the mycelia of G. lucidum and L. edodes revealed that glucose was the major constitutent.
