How our Vitamin D-Booster works
The ARCO Vitamin D-Booster ensures that the vitamin D potential in mushrooms is optimally utilized. Mushrooms grown indoors do not contain much vitamin D, but they do contain a lot of ergosterol: a substance that is converted into vitamin D by exposure to UV light. ARCO’s Vitamin D-Booster emits exactly the right amount of UV light to ensure conversion of ergosterol in the mushrooms into vitamin D.
The Vitamin D-Booster ensures consistent quality by delivering the optimal amount of UV light based on the mushroom species and other specifications. The Vitamin D-Booster processes up to 120 punnets per minute and works for both whole and sliced mushrooms. The enhanced content of vitamin D persists up to nine days after treatment.
