13C-NMR analyses of Cantharellus cibarius growth media were performed. We found exudation of trehalose and mannitol, which may explain the phenomenon of reproducing Pseudomonas bacteria observed inside fruit bodies. Exudation varied with strain and environment. NMR analyses of stored 13C was also performed. Trehalose, mannitol, and arginine were revealed. The mannitol pathway seems to play an important role for trehalose production in this species. This is the first study of the fate of the photosynthetically derived carbon in the highly appreciated edible ectomycorrhizal mushroom Cantharellus cibarius.
