Storage and processing of edible mushrooms

Abstract This paper presents a review of the Polish and foreign literature concerning the storage and processing of edible mushrooms. Mushrooms are difficult raw materials for the processing industry: fresh mushrooms cannot be stored for long periods; moreover, during processing they readily change colour and texture. In order to guarantee acceptable quality of canned and processed mushrooms, fresh pilei should be kept at low tempera-tures. Before processing they should undergo preliminary treatment using substances pre-venting changes in colour and texture; the storage conditions for finished products must be appropriate to the processing method applied. The most frequently used methods of processing are: drying, marinating, sterilization and freezing.
