Abstract: The objective of this work was to study the effect of caffeine and tannins on Pleurotus sp. cultivation and to evaluate the feasibility of using coffee husks as substrate for mushroom cultivation. Eight strains of P. ostreatus and two strains of P. sajor-caju were screened on a medium prepared from agar extract of coffee husk. Based on best mycelial growth and biomass production, the strain P. ostreatus LPB 09 was selected for detailed studies. With the increase of caffeine concentration, the mycelial growth a… Show more

“…The use of this residue as substrate for mushroom cultivation seems to be an interesting strategy to add economic value to this residue and prevent environmental pollution. Many studies successfully reported production of mushrooms in sterilized coffee husk (Fan et al, , 2003Dias et al, 2003;da Silva et al, 2012). However, in South America, mushrooms are an expensive food, especially when compared with meat, making its commercialization difficult, thus justifying investigations of cheap methods to cultivate mushrooms in coffee husk.…”

“…One of these characteristics seems to be presence of tannins and caffeine in the coffee husk, compounds that can exert toxic effect on P. ostreatus and Lentinula edodes (Beaux and Soccol, 1996;Pandey et al, 2000;Fan et al, 2003) and can significantly affect the fungal growth. Immersion in water or boiling can remove those compounds from the substrate (Table 5), leading to levels low enough to enable adequate mycelial growth and consequently, to an increase in mushroom yield, as observed in this study (Table 1).…”
