Synopsis:

Mineral Composition and Radioactivity of Edible Mushrooms is the definitive reference guide that collects and collates all recent very dispersed data and information on mushroom mineral elements and radioactivity. The book deals with the overall outline of the major and trace mineral elements of many both wild growing and cultivated mushroom species, including chemistry, biochemistry and environmental context, losses of minerals during mushroom preservation and cooking, and nutritional and health implications. This monography also includes a chapter on natural and anthropogenic radionuclides, along with the lessons learned after the Chernobyl and Fukushima disasters concerning mushroom radioactivity.



  • Thoroughly explores factors affecting accumulation and distribution of numerous major and trace mineral elements within fruiting bodies,
  • Brings the overall information on sources and levels of natural and artificial radioactivity of mushrooms.
