Vitamin D created by a natural process
‘Mushrooms are a natural source of ergosterol, which is converted into vitamin D under the influence of sunlight. By mimicking this natural process, we stimulate the production of vitamin D in our mushrooms. Vitamin D is retained even during processing and preparation. In this way, we enhance specially selected mushrooms with vitamin D and offer the consumer a tasty product with health-promoting benefits.’
When might I have a vitamin D deficiency?
‘Vitamin D is one of the few vitamins that the body produces itself, under the influence of sunlight on the skin. When the sun’s strength decreases, or if the body is exposed to too little sunlight, the body fails to produce enough vitamin D. This can lead to impaired immunity, weaker bones and other health problems. The deficiency can be made up with vitamin D mushrooms, supplements or other foods such as oily fish, meat or eggs. We supply mushrooms that contain 10 micrograms of vitamin D, which is equivalent to the recommended daily intake.’
