The purpose of this study was to find DPPH (1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl) scavenging activities and the extract yields of two mushroom species, namely, Ganoderma lucidum (stored) and Phellinus torulosus (fresh). For the extraction of both mushroom bodies, methanol was used as solvent by using Blois extraction methods. The antioxidant activities of extracts were measured by UV-vis spectrophotometer at 517 nm. Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) was employed as a reference antioxidant. In conclusion, the highest DPPH scavenging activity (96.4%) was found in the body of Ganoderma lucidum while the lowest DPPH scavenging activity value (92.58%) was found for that of Phellinus torulosus. The DPPH scavenging power of the whole extract studied here was higher than that of BHT.
