Wet noodles were prepared with wheat flour and mushroom powder (oyster and oak mushrooms), and effects of added mushroom powders on dough rheology and wet noodle quality were examined. Particle size distribution of mushroom powder ranged from 0.04 to $500\;{\mu}m$, which was different from that of wheat flour. The initial pasting temperature in amylograph, and the water absorption and the dough development time in farinograph increased with the increase of mushroom powder. The peak and final viscosities in amylograph, and dough stability in farinograph decreased with the increase of mushroom powder. Decrease of L value and increase of a and b values were shown with the increase of mushroom powder in wheat flour-mushroom powder composite as well as wet noodles. The cooked weight and volume of cooked noodles were decreased, but the turbidity of soup were increased with the addition of mushroom powder. Most of texture parameters (hardness, cohesiveness, chewiness and cutting force) of cooked noodles decreased with the addition of oyster mushroom powder, but increased with the addition of oak mushroom powder. From the result of sensory evaluation, wet noodles containing 3% oyster mushroom powder and 5% oak mushroom powder were rated as high quality wet noodles.
