Calocybe indica or milky white mushroom, it’s an indigenous edible mushroom originates from India and apart from India, it is also gaining considerable importance in other tropical countries like Bangladesh, Malaysia, China and Singapore. It has an attractive fruiting body, pleasant white color, highly nutritious, long shelf life, require less time to grow, its cultivation process is easy and economical. C. indica is rich in metabolites including protein, lipid, carbohydrate, and dietary fibers. C. indica is a micro-fungus, they accumulate nutrients as well as minerals from the substrate in which they grow. Because of these feature, C. indica can be a good candidate for making and use it as an enriched food source. Enrichment of C. indica is the new way for mushroom quality improvement. By using a different type of renewable and cheaper supplementation substrates, we can minimize the overall production cause and makes a better quality of C. indica for consumption, as well as nutraceutical development etc. Enriched mushroom cultivation and production can helpful for sustainable development.
