Mushrooms are a category of fungi that develop either above ground or upon their nourishment sources, characterized by their distinctive flavor and texture. They are known for their rich nutritional profile, comprising proteins, dietary fibers, potassium, copper, selenium, and vitamins such as riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, and biotin. In addition, mushrooms are a great source of polysaccharides, beta-glucans, and antioxidants, including ergothioneine and glutathione. The manufacturing procedure for edible mushrooms is multifaceted, comprising stages, such as cultivation, spawning, casing, pinning, and harvesting. They find a broad array of applications in food and beverages (F&B), dietary supplements, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, bioremediation, waste management, textile dyeing, biotechnology, personal care products, pest control, animal feed, bioplastics, and psychoactive compound production. Mushrooms aid in strengthening the immune system, enhancing metabolism, assisting in weight management, improving brain function, and supporting heart health. They also offer numerous advantages, such as ease of cultivation, constant availability throughout the year, culinary adaptability, eco-friendliness, and compatibility with vegetarian and vegan lifestyles.
