P. SARAVANAN, K. MURUGESAN AND PT. KALAICHELVAN

Abstract

Conversion of lignocellulose into ruminant feed and food was tested with Canodernia lucidam , a basidiomycete white rot fungus grown on agrowastes like saw dust (teak), paddy straw and rice husk. Macromolecule contents such as protein, carbohydrates and lipids of Ganoderma lucidum were analysed on different lignocellulosic substrates. In paddy straw grown culture maximum amount of protein, carbohydrate and lipids contents were observed. The maximum bioconversion efficiency (BCE) of the fungus was observed in paddy straw and energy value varies from 290-304 Kcal/100g substrate. The presence of high amount of macromolecules in Catiotlerma hicidum indicates the possibility of application in pharmaceutical products.
