|Abstract: ||Palm kernel cake (PKC), residues obtained from the process of palm kernel oil extraction was investigated for protein and fiber improvement through solid substrate fermentation (SSF) using selected mushroom species. traditionally, palm kernel cake has been utilized as ruminant feedstuff. currently, the potential of using bioconverted PKC in poultry feed is at large. Mushrooms are among the potential biological agents in nutritional improvement of agricultural by-product such as PKC. In this study, PKC was used as the substrate for the ssf using four different selected edible mushroom species: P1, P2, P3 and G1. SSF is the preferred method since it mimics the conditions that are prevalent under natural conditions. during SSF, the growth of mushroom was occurred on water insoluble substrate in the absence of free water. G1 gave the most improvement in crude fiber and crude protein as compared to other mushroom species applied.|
