  1. Mean ± SD of duplicates.
  2. Figures in parentheses are standard deviations of means; IMS individual mineral score of the mushroom species measured at recommended daily intake for physiological needs of FND (2001). <100 score indicates deficient mineral content; > 20 score indicates relatively high mineral content in a serving; 10–19 score indicates good source of that particular mineral in a serving; < 10 indicates poor mineral level in a serving.
