Abstract : Mushrooms are macro fungi that are saprophytic and produce prominent sporocarps. A mushroom generates big sporocarp, which is regarded as a popular food due to its low caloric content and high mineral, fibre and protein content. Biologically active substances isolated from A. subrufescens cultures are recognised to treat numerous disorders. As a result, the mushroom is known as a medicinal mushroom and is frequently consumed for the prevention of cancer cells, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, atherosclerosis and chronic hepatitis, as well as to activate the immune system. The almond mushroom can only be grown on farms with many crops in various stages of development and enclosed in structures for protection. The cereal straw-produced raw materials, such as wheat, barley or rice are the most common sources of carbohydrates and lignin. In the long term, A. subrufescens has the potential to be an excellent therapeutic medication.
