The basic composition (The total protein, total carbohydrate, total lipid, crude fiber and ash content of each mushroom were studied on dry weight contents were determined in the cultivated mushrooms Agaricus bisporus/white, Agaricus bisporus/brown, Lentinula edodes, and Pleurotus ostreatus and they ranged from 28.38-49.2, 1.54-4.96, 13.2-29.02 and 7.01-17.92, respectively and this shows it has high content of protein and fat fiber and low fat and this good for as alternatives food stuff andtheseresults asserve as the basis of further scientific study into various ways of enhancing the livelihood of particular areas of northern Mekelle through increased mushroom domestication as well as assessing the possible bioactivity of mushrooms against foodcertain human diseases.
