Genus Armillaria (honey mushrooms)

Honey mushrooms are widely considered to be excellent edible mushrooms across the world, but only when properly prepared as it is slightly toxic when consumed raw, as demonstrated by the Government of Norway’s declaration of the fungi as toxic following the discouragement of the use of preparation methods most often used prior to consuming the mushroom. However, perhaps its most fascinating human use is its relevance in Asian medicine where its organic compounds such as peptides and sterols would potentially lead to it being an effective antimicrobial and anti carcinogenic. There is also currently research underway testing its efficacy as an antioxidant and its anti-edema properties, which concluded that these mushrooms do have dietary benefits, and have high antioxidant properties. They are not currently used in the pharmaceutical industry, despite its potential as an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory substance has been noted by health organizations such as the National Health Institute of the United States.
