Vitamin D Enriched Mushrooms:

  • Walsh Mushrooms working in conjunction with Campden BRI and Penn State University, have developed a system to enrich normal mushrooms but using a specially designed system.
  • Research has linked vitamin D to a rapidly increasing number of benefits beyond healthy bones and the prevention of rickets and osteoporosis.  The benefits of normal vitamin D levels include a decreased risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, hypertension and colorectal cancer.

  • Mushrooms exposed to sunlight or UV light naturally generate vitamin D, which enhances calcium absorption and bone strength.

  • Vitamin D deficiency is common especially during winter.
