VITAMIN D ENRICHED MUSHROOMS USING
PULSED UV LIGHT CONVEYOR
Vitamin D Enriched Mushrooms
using Pulsed UV Light Conveyors
Pulsed UV Light Conveyors, using UV Technology, pulse UV light over mushrooms passing through a conveyor, increasing the nutritional amount of Vitamin D, the mushrooms provide.
Why is this important?
Vitamin D provides many health benefits: healthy bones, improves muscle, heart, lung and brain function.
Vitamin D intake comes from exposure to the sun as well as taking supplements.
Increasing the amount of vitamin D in our diets, without having to go into the sun, has major health benefits, especially during the winter months, for those living in the Northern Hemisphere. It decreases the risk of skin damage, but increases the healthy toxins we need.
Enriching mushrooms with vitamin D is becoming more and more popular in the UK, as the benefits are becoming understood.
According to published research, the RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) of vitamin D is 10mcg per day. Sun grown mushrooms contain around 1mcg of vitamin D per 100g, 10% of the RDA. Enriching mushrooms with our Pulsed UV Conveyor, produces mushrooms with up to 20mcg per 100g, 200% of the RDA.
Each machine can be customised, designed to meet specific needs, with adjustable guide rails to accommodate any punnet size, with speeds up to 150+ punnets per minute, making it easier to super enrich mushrooms with vitamin D.
