Dried shiitake (Lentinulla edodes) and oyster (Pleurotus ostreatus) mushrooms as a good source of nutrient

  title={Dried shiitake (Lentinulla edodes) and oyster (Pleurotus ostreatus) mushrooms as a good source of nutrient},
  author={Julita Reguła and Marek Siwulski},
Due to presented in literature potential health benefits of shiitake Lentinula edodes (Berk.) Pegl. and oyster mushroom Pleurotus ostreatus (Jacq.: Fr.) Kumm., chemical composition as well as Fe, Cu and Zn ions sorption (in conditions related to human digestive tract) by dried shiitake and oyster were investigated. Both dried mushrooms had the high content of dietary fiber, Fe, Cu, Mg, K but low of fat, Na and Ca. Relatively low sorption of micronutrients was found in pH = 1.8, while the high…
