Shyni A.R, Irene Wilsy J, Reginald Appavoo M


Abstract: Mushrooms are white rot fungi regarded as one of the well known food and possessing various kinds of biopharmaceutical compounds. Phytochemicals of mushrooms are nutritionally functional and a source of physiologically beneficial medicines. Mushrooms are rich in protein, minerals and vitamins and they contain an abundance of essential amino acids. Qualitative and quantitative phytochemicals were analyzed to study the presence of alkaloids, carbohydrates, glycosides, proteins, flavonoids, triterpenoids, phenols, tannins, saponins and anthroquinones. In the present study Calocybe indica was used to find out the phytochemical analysis in different solvents like, acetone, petroleum ether and aqueous. This study demonstrated that the acetone extract of calocybe indica had highest protein content compared to petroleum ether and aqueous extracts.
