Contaminated Mushrooms? Whodathunkit
    #3721063 - 02/02/05 09:57 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Hia. I don't frequent this forum. If this is a common question that get's "search" shouts, feel free. I did a superficial search and found nothing.

On to tha question:

I want to know if you can take a mushroom and analyze it for toxins or contaminants. That is, if a cake/casing has a contaminant (visible or not) and the byproducts, or toxins, or whatever is so bad about contaminants are being spread throughout the mycelial network (including the fruitbodies,) is it possible to take the mushroom and find those toxins in it; thus warding off consumption.

Not to be rude, but if you don't understand what it is that I'm asking, please don't bother replying with a "you shouldn'ts eats mushrooms froms contaminateds cakeses."

I imagine a serious lab would be able to break down the mushrooms and find out just exactly what, and how much, is present, but I won't be visiting any serious labs anytime soon.


We have to answer our own prayers

I've wondered this myself, but have not researched it.

Toxin inspection is possible but i think it would be way too expensive. Only specialized laboratories are able to perform such task.
