Fatty Acid Profiling in Selected Cultivated Edible and Wild MedicinalMushrooms in Southern United States

  title={Fatty Acid Profiling in Selected Cultivated Edible and Wild MedicinalMushrooms in Southern United States},
  author={D. Abugri and W. Mcelhenney and K. Willian},
The fatty acid composition was determined in the cultivated edible mushroom Agaricus bisporus (white), and the wild medicinal mushrooms, Turkey-tail (Trametes versicolor), Artist Conk (Ganoderma applanatum) and Tinder Polypore (Fomes fomentarius). The most prominent fatty acids present in all of the species studied were palmitic (C16: 0), stearic (C18: 0), oleic (C18: 1), and linoleic acid (C18: 2n6). The amount of linoleic acid in the cultivated species ranged from 75.35 ± 1.54%; compared to… Expand
