Edible Mushrooms provides an advanced overview of the chemical composition and nutritional properties of nearly all species of culinary mushrooms. This unique compendium gathers all current literature, which has beendispersed as fragmentary information until now.

The book is broken into five parts covering chemical and nutrient composition, taste and flavor components as well as health stimulating and potentially detrimental effects. Appendices provide helpful quick references on abbreviations, common names of mushrooms, fatty acid profiles, and an index of mushroom species. Mycologists, nutrition researchers, mushroom cultivators and distributors, and food and neutraceutical processors will benefit from this sweeping overview of edible mushrooms.
