Original Paper


Mushrooms are health foods due to their nutritional values and antioxidant properties. This study investigated chemical properties, total phenolic content (TPC), antioxidant activities (2, 2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl; DPPH and 2, 2-azino-bis-(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid); ABTS) and selected phenolic acids from five different tray-dried and freeze-dried mushrooms (Pleurotus ostreatus, Pleurotus pulmonarius, Schizophyllum commune, Volvariella volvacea and Lentinus edodes). The extracts were prepared using methanol and hot water extractions. The results revealed that V. volvacea had the highest protein (28.70%) and ash (9.48%) contents. There were significant differences among some tray dried and freeze dried mushrooms regarding TPC, DPPH and ABTS. However, tray drying tended to improve TPC, DPPH and ABTS in P. ostreatus, P. pulmonarius and L. edodes. Among five mushroom species, both methanol and hot water extractions of V. volvacea had the highest TPC, DPPH and ABTS values but there were no significant differences between mushrooms prepared using tray drying and freeze drying. Moreover, the yield and contents of gallic acid and p-hydroxybenzoic acid from the hot water extracts were higher than from the methanol extracts. Therefore, tray-dried V. volvacea had the most potential as a natural antioxidant and could be used as a functional ingredient in healthy food products.
