Vitamin D has been shown to be essential for the body to absorb and use calcium and phosphorus, two critical elements for maintaining bone strength. Until now, the most common ways to get enough vitamin D were through exposure to the sun, by eating foods high in natural vitamin D, such as certain fish, or through supplements commonly added to milk and other dairy products. With increased concern over long term exposure to the sun, there is increasing concern over a critical deficiency of vitamin D in both infants and adults.
Now Monterey Mushrooms offers a safer and more nutritious alternative. Whenever you buy Monterey’s sliced mushrooms with Vitamin D, you will be assured of getting a minimum of 100% of the Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) as established by the FDA. Mushrooms react to sunlight in the same way as humans and produce a totally natural form of vitamin D. As such they are totally safe and good for you. A single 3 ounce serving will provide at least 100% of the RDI with no fat and no cholesterol.
