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 trays per minute and works for both whole and sliced mushrooms. The enhanced content of vitamin D persists up to nine days after treatment.
Application of our Vitamin D-Booster
The Vitamin D-Booster increases the content of vitamin D in different kinds of 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 increases product value at the expense of little to no time and efficiency
- The booster can be integrated into new and existing lines;
- The smart lights of the Vitamin D-Booster perform consistently thanks to the internal UV sensor that automatically and continuously adjusts to the power loss of the LEDs.
