Auricularia polytricha is a functional food material that contains numerous bioactive health-promoting compounds. This study demonstrates the novel application of A. polytricha powder (APP) in steamed bread production. Moreover, this work aimed to determine the influence of the direct addition of APP on the sensory, textural, physical, and in vitro antioxidant properties of steamed breads. Steamed breads enriched with 5% APP had higher consumer acceptability than those enriched with 2.5%, 5%, 7.5% and 10% APP. In addition, supplementation with APP significantly enhanced the antioxidant activity of steamed breads during digestion in vitro. Our study suggests that A. polytricha is a valuable source of active compounds for steamed wheat breads.
