Abstract
Our research has been focused on the documentation of nutritional composition and nutraceutical potential of wild mushrooms, making the information available for a better management and conservation of these species and related habitats. In the present work, the chemical composition and bioactivity of three wild edible Boletus sp. (Boletus aereus, Boletus edulis, Boletus reticulatus) from Northeast Portugal were evaluated, in order to valorise these species as sources of important phytochemicals. The macronutrient profile in general revealed that they are rich sources of protein and carbohydrates, having low amounts of fat. The analysis of fatty acid composition...
