Abstract :

This work aimed to evaluate the effect of proteins of three edible mushrooms named Volvariella volvacea (VV), Termitomyces letestui (TL) and Psathyrella tuberculata (PT) of Côte d'Ivoire on the growth of rats. The results indicated that mushrooms treatments provoked lower growth, feed intake, and negative values of feed and protein efficiency, compared to those of fish diet. Mushroom-based diets consumption resulted in an increase of average weight of liver, kidneys, heart, and absence of abdominal fat. However, it did not affect the average weight of the spleen. Mushrooms did not modify the activity of ALAT, while increasing that of ALP. TL diet decreased the mean activity of ASAT; on the contrary, PT diet increased it. TL and PT diets increased the mean activity of γGT. These fungi had no effect on the mean value of most of serum metabolites and electrolytes. The negative effect of mushrooms on the growth of the rats is possibly due to their low energy content and the presence of polyphenols. Furthermore, Fungi are not palatable and digestible.
