Total quality index approach was used to reflect the quality of Pleurotus ostreatus mushroom, cultivated on grape pomace (P) as food waste substrate and wheat straw (S), in four different combined ratios: 100P; 80P20S; 50P50S; and 20P80S, with 100S, serving as control substrate. This approach involved two directions of mushroom analysis. The whole mushroom fruiting bodies analysis introduced a single total quality index (TQIM) based on 11 quality parameters. The mushroom water extracts analysis was presented by another single total quality index (TQIE), with seven quality parameters. This mathematical model revealed that the mushroom extracts have a better overall quality score with higher pomace content in substrate mixture, compared to the whole mushroom quality changes throughout the observed shelf life period. Future research may pay attention to the phytotoxicity of grape pomace as a food waste, as well as the influence of grape pomace on glucan content, as a health‐beneficial com...pounds.
