Vitamin D

Mushrooms are the only source of vitamin D in the produce aisle and one of the few non-fortified food sources.

What is Vitamin D? Vitamin D helps build and maintain strong bones by helping the body absorb calcium. Vitamin D is available via diet, supplements and sunlight, which is why it is also referred to as the “sunshine vitamin.”

Vitamin D in Mushrooms

All mushrooms contain some vitamin D, but growers also have the ability to increase D levels by exposing mushrooms to ultraviolet light. Similar to humans, mushrooms naturally produce vitamin D following exposure to sunlight or a sunlamp: mushrooms’ plant sterol – ergosterol – converts to vitamin D when exposed to light.

#Repost @zestmylemon I hope you’re having a great day so far. I’m doing breakfast for lunch today. An organic free range egg cooked in avocado oil with sautéed veggies and chili roasted chickpeas. The recipe for the chili roasted chickpeas can now be found on my blog with the link in my bio. Enjoy the rest of your day.
