Abstract

This study was conducted to investigate the functional characteristics of diethylether and butanol extracts from Ganoderma lucidum, Agaricus bisporus and Lentinus edodes. Electron donating abilities of diethylether and butanol extracts from Ganoderma luculum were 95.07% and 97.75%, respectively. Electron donating abilities of butanol extracts from Agaricus bisporus was 94.33%, and that of Lentinus edodes was 96.09%. Antioxidative activities of diethylether and butanol extracts from Canoderma lucidum were higher than those of BHA. All extracts of Agaricus bisporus and Lentinus edodes showed lower antioxidative activity than that of BHA. Nitrite-scavenging abilities of diethylether and butanol extracts from Ganoderma lucidum were 68.34% and 44.44%, respectively. Nitrite-scavenging abilities of butanol extracts from Agaricus bisporus were 43.39%, and those of Lentinus edodes were 68.23%.
