MACRO AND MICRO ELEMENTS IN COMMON (VOLVARIELLA VOLVACEA) MUSHROOM FROM THE SOUTH EASTERN NIGERIA: COMPOSITION, BIOACCUMULATION, EWI AND DATA REVIEW FOR SPECIES.

This study gives information on bioaccumulation, occurrence, intake and possible health risks associated with noxious metallic elements (As, Cd, Pb) and mineral constituents (As, Al, Ca,Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, K, Mg, Mn, Mo, Na, Ni, Pb and Zn)  contained in common (Volvariella volvacea) mushroom, a species subjected to a broad use within the domestic market of South Eastern Nigeria and widely exported abroad, and presents a short review of data from the obtainable literature. The tasty values of Volvariella volvacea seems to be more rated than the essential minerals contained in its fresh and usually taken with 1,000g of fresh fruit bodies eaten per capital yearly, while the content of toxic potentially toxic metal, such as Cd, Pb, Al and As, are much below the tolerance limits.
