Hello from India !

Can anyone  suggest and help me!!  what is the safety parameter in mushroom Food product ?

In India our FOOD SAFETY AND STANDARD AUTHORITY OF INDIA (FSSAI) have't mention any mushroom product parameter and safety. Its only mention (including mushroom) and as a food technologist how can we audit this issue and solve for consumer safety.

 

Thank you.

Yess ! Some into powder like oyster mushroom , and some medicinal like cordyceps militaris dried as a tea or powder form. Non of the company and processor don't know about the safety behind the food microbiology,only sold as a neutracetical food in markets.

Historically canned mushrooms were a classic case of Staphylococcal toxin food poisoning.

The correct identity and source is important.  If the mushrooms are gathered there could be a toxic look alike.

If there is a medicinal feature concentration of the active ingredient would concern me. 

If the mushrooms are farmed the soil must be properly pasteurized. There can also be stones in the soil causing a physical contamination.

I am not familiar with damaged or wet mushrooms may harbor bacterial growth but I have seen a lot of ugly mushrooms that I would not consider eating during my food service days.

 

Historically edible mushrooms in the US have a very safe track record, but the supply is carefully farmed and processed.
