This study was carried out to establish a cultivation technique for increasing the γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) content in the fruit body of mushrooms by adding processed by-products. For the oyster mushroom ‘Heucktari’, addition of green tea powder, sea tangle powder, and green tea dregs resulted in very poor primordia formation, fruit body growth, and increased GABA. However, addition of 10% schizandra berry dregs and 1% rice bran to the basal substrate induced 100% and 10% increases, in GABA content in the fruit bodies compared to the control treatment without by-product, respectively. In addition, fruit body growth and primordia formation were greatly increased by these treatments. Therefore, GABA content was increased when the substrate was prepared by mixing an appropriate amount of schizandra berry dregs and rice bran.
