Sodium contents of fruit bodies of some common edible mushroom species were analysed from the samples (total number: 153) gathered from different habitats of Hungary. The average sodium content of the different mushroom taxa varies between 100 and 400 ppm, and seems to be practically independent of habitat, nutrition type (saprotrophic, xylophagous, or mycorrhizal) and of the taxonomic position of the fungi. The low and relative constant sodium level is of very great nutritional benefit to the consumer. This is the first comparative analysis of Na of the common edible mushroom species.
