Studies to investigate the chemical analysis for fat and protein contents of fruiting bodies of different Pleurotus species grown on various industrial and agricultural waste materials were conducted. It is revealed that each species showed different results on for fat (%) only. P. florida showed maximum fat when grown on blow gutter, while minimum on luckrine razing. P. sajor-caju showed maximum fat on luckrine razing and minimum or sweeping. P. ostreatus grown on chimney gutter revealed maximum fat contents while it showed minimum on ring sweeping. Maximum protein was determined from Pleurotus ostreatus grown on blow gutter and sawdust, respectively. Whereas minimum protein contents were observed in mushrooms grown on chimney gutter.
