There is worldwide need for alternative source of high quality and protein rich food components which control food insecurity and malnutrition. Due to the nutritional importance, macrofungi (mushrooms) are utilized and consumed frequently by villagers of Ayodhya district, India.

In current study, eight selective wild macrofungal samples were collected from different sites of study area such as Macrolepiota procera, Tuber aestivum, Auricularia auricula-judae, Hygrocybe eburneus and Ganoderma leucidum. The sample was prepared for nutritional analysis and their nutrient composition has been analyzed as findings result. Nutritionally the protein, carbohydrate, lipid, fibre, and ash content were analyzed and ranged from 21.14 – 36.32%, 11.70 – 60.90%, 0.96 – 3.25%, 4.32 – 41.13% and 3.91 – 10.92% respectively.
