The antioxidant activity of extracts of Armillaria tabescens, Leucopaxillus gentianeus and Suillus granulatus were determined for the first time by using five complementary tests; namely, β-carotene-linoleic acid, DPPH scavenging, ABTS•+ scavenging, metal chelating and CUPRAC assays. In DPPH scavenging, ABTS•+ scavenging and CUPRAC assays, the ethyl acetate extract of S. granulatus showed the best activity 91.52±0.97%, 89.67±0.15% and 3.90±0.09 at 400 μg/mL concentration, respectively while in β-carotene-linoleic acid assay, the methanol extract of this mushroom exhibited higher activity. In addition, among the extracts of mushroom species, particularly the hexane extracts showed better activity in metal chelating activity. The hexane extract of L. gentianeus exhibited the highest metal chelating activity (70.68±0.34%) at 400 μg/mL concentration. In conclusion, the results showed the antioxidant importance of the studied mushroom species, growing naturally in Anatolia. Thus, particularly S. granulatus may have been helped people to protect against lipid peroxidation and free radical damage, and its extracts will probably use for the development of safe food products and additives.
