Cultivated maitake mushroom demonstrated functional food quality as determined by in vitro bioassays

Abstract Cultivated fruiting body of Grifola frondosa is a culinary and medicinal mushroom. In this study, we investigated its functional food value. Extracts of its fruiting body afforded known compounds, glycerides (1 and 2), sterols (3–5), a glucosylceramide (6), a α-glucose dimer (7), a phospholipid (8) and α-glucans as elucidated by spectroscopic methods. This is the first report of […]
