Wild and commercial mushrooms as source of nutrients and nutraceuticals.
Chemical composition and biological properties of portuguese wild mushrooms: a comprehensive study.
TLDR
Lycoperdon species were resistant to all of the tested microorganisms, and the other samples revealed antimicrobial activity selectively against Gram-positive bacteria, with very low minimal inhibitory concentration, in some cases, even lower than the standard.
Antioxidants in wild mushrooms.
TLDR
The antioxidant properties of wild mushrooms have been extensively studied, and many antioxidant compounds extracted from these sources have been identified, such as phenolic compounds, tocopherols, ascorbic acid, and carotenoids.
Antimicrobial activity and bioactive compounds of Portuguese wild edible mushrooms methanolic extracts
TLDR
The antimicrobial properties of phenolic extracts of Portuguese wild edible mushroom species (Lactarius deliciosus, Sarcodon imbricatus and Tricholoma portentosum) against pathogens were investigated and revealed that Candida albicans and Cryptococcus neoformans were differently inhibited for the mushrooms used.
