Characterisation of flavour and taste compounds in Agaricus blazei Murrill sensu Heinem., the cultivated almond mushroom



Australasian Mycologist 22(3): 116-122



Agaricus blazei is a new cultivated medicinal and gourmet mushroom which is currently popular in Brazil, Japan and China. It is also cultivated in the USA, and it has recently drawn the attention of European mushroom growers. Upon investigating the mushroom's pleasant almond flavour, it was observed that benzaldehyde and its precursor benzoic acid were the major components of the volatile fraction.
