The average potassium content of edible higher mushroom species is 34,35 g/kg-1 dry matter (SD:12,91) and thus an important and valuable K-source for human diet. The K-concentration of mushrooms is relatively constant. An accumulation of potassium in the mushroom samples analysed was not found. This fact is confirmed by the results of other authors, too.
