ABSTRACT

The presence of macro- and microelements in 16 Phellinus species were estimated by atomic absorption spectroscopy, and the content of 14 elements were analyzed. Compared to other elements, the calcium content was significant (1000−1100 ppm), followed by sodium (8−17 ppm). The overall ranking of elements for most of the samples was established as Ca > Na > Mg > Fe > Ge > Zn > Mn > Se > Cu > Cr. During the present investigation, toxic elements such as lead, cadmium, arsenic, and cobalt were not detected, but important medical elements, such as germanium and selenium, were detected (0.2−0.5 ppm and 0.1−0.5 ppm, respectively). This is the first report of the presence of germanium and selenium in Indian Phellinus species. Compared with Indian Food Processing Organization (FPO) data, toxic elements in Phellinus species were either absent or in very low amounts, indicating the nontoxicity of the samples. The data suggest that the Indian Phellinus species might be safe to consume as a nutraceutical without posing any serious risk to humans.
