Abstract: Mushroom are nutritious food now a days popular in vegetarian dietary folklore. They are viable alternatives to food crops in millenium. They have been reported containing high nutritional and medicinal value. (1) In the present study two species of oyster mushrooms viz. Pleurotus florida and Pleurotus sajorcaju have been studied for the nutritional parameters as influenced by Zn, Cu, Fe, and pyrites treatment. The substrate and mixture of all the elements gave the maximum amino acid composition in oyster mushroom. Best results for essential amino acid were obtained with substrate and Pyrite treatment. P. florida gave higher value of amino acid composition than that of P. sajorcaju (2)
Keywords: Essential Amino Acid, Pyrites.
