Kerala, India: New varieties of mushroom promoted

Kerala, India:  New varieties of mushroom promoted | Social Enterprising Global | Scoop.it

Scientists at the Kerala Agricultural University (KAU) have launched a project to promote new varieties of mushrooms for food and medicine. The project seeks to domesticate lesser-known edible varieties of mushroom and popularise those with potent medicinal properties.The university is also preparing to initiate research on the use of biological additives to develop new varieties of mushroom with different types of aroma and flavour.

Mushrooms have an established history of use in traditional oriental medicine. Studies have established that they are unlimited sources of therapeutically useful biological agents. Yet, there has been very little effort in India in general and Kerala in particular, to identify and popularise beneficial mushrooms,” KAU Vice-Chancellor P. Rajendran said.

 

Several mushroom varieties in South India were found to possess nutraceutical and anti-oxidant properties, he said. “KAU is keen on furthering the studies on the medicinal value of native mushrooms. We are trying to identify a collaborating institution for this research project,” Dr. Rajendran said.
