Furthermore the addition of oyster mushroom powder could increase its nutritional values. This study aimed to reveal  the effect of steaming time as well as addition of tapioca, and oyster mushroom powder on physical and chemical characteristics of kwetiau. The concentrations of tapioca and oyster mushroom powder are consecutively 0%, 10%, 20%, 30%, and 0%, 5%, 10%, 15%, with 4, 5, and 6 minutes steaming time.
