Inonotus obliquus (chaga) is a birch phytoparasitic mushroom with an irregular shape that represents dark-colored mycelial agglomeration. It has a high pharmaceutical value because of its rich content in bioactive compounds, polysaccharides, phenols, or triterpene (betulin, for example). The purpose of this study was to determine the composition of the fermented medium in different active compounds, while also identifying the antioxidant potential expressed by the fermented medium of I. obliquus mycelium. In a general analysis of the obtained results, the potential of the I. obliquus mycelium to release in the fermented medium compounds with antioxidant potential is primarily due to the medium composition. Particular attention was determined by the presence of other compounds, such as ascorbic acid, which was identified in a reduced number of samples. The results led to the conclusion that fermentation medium with I. obliquus mycelium had the potential to be cultivated via a technological process to obtain valuable compounds.
