How our vitamin D-Booster work
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, so that the ergosterol in the mushrooms is converted into vitamin D.
The vitamin D-Booster ensures continuous quality because the most suitable amount of UV light is determined for each mushroom species and on the basis of other specifications. The vitamin D-Booster can process up to 120 trays per minute and works for both whole and sliced mushrooms. The increased vitamin D content persists for up to nine days after conversion of the ergosterol to vitamin D.
Use of our Vitamin D-Booster
The vitamin D booster is used to activate vitamin D in mushrooms and other mushrooms.
Advantages of our Vitamin D-Booster
The benefits of the ARCO Vitamin D Booster are:
- Sunlight is replaced by just the right amount of UV light for the conversion to vitamin D;
- The Vitamin D-Booster can process up to 120 trays per minute and thus provides extra product value without compromising on time and efficiency;
- The booster can be integrated into new and existing lines;
- The smart lamps of the Vitamin D Booster continue to perform thanks to an internal UV sensor and automatic and continuous adjustment of the power loss of the LEDs.
In addition to the Vitamin D Booster, we have many other options for checking your soft fruit and vegetables for weight and quality. Namely: our weighing lines PM2020-HC and pm2020 MC, triple deck systems, checkweighers or multihead weighers.
