Super D Shiitake
Shiitakes that have been grown on our farm have been enriched with Vitamin D “the sunshine vitamin” by increasing the conversion of pro-Vitamin D (ergosterol) already present within Shiitake mushrooms to Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) by exposing them to sunlight. On analysis, our Super D shiitake have 15-fold more Vitamin D, than those not exposed to sunshine. Vitamin D is an essential vitamin with numerous health benefits, including bone health, immune system. Our enriched Vitamin D Shiitakes mushrooms are a delicious and easy way of acquiring an intake of Vitamin D and are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
