Mushrooms with Vitamin D

Monterey Mushrooms, Inc. has been working with the United States Department of Agriculture to replicate what happens in nature when mushrooms are exposed to light. Through their research efforts, they have found that mushrooms respond to light in much the same way humans do, by converting the sun’s rays into Vitamin D. Mushrooms have a natural level of vitamin D, and when exposed to sunlight they synthesize vitamin D.

No matter how you serve them, either cooked or raw, all of vitamin D comes through for you. These new mushrooms offer 100% of the recommended daily Vitamin D intake in one 3-ounce serving after being exposed to ultraviolet light. This increased Vitamin D does not involve any additives, supplements or chemicals. The Vitamin D is stable — maintaining its nutritional value even after cooking or freezing.
