Mushrooms-Vegan Vitamin D Source

ABC News: Mushrooms Are Unlikely Source of Vitamin D

Zapping Mushrooms with Ultra Violet light can produce vast amounts of Vitamin D says FDA at their annual science forum.

The ongoing work so far has found that a single serving of white button mushrooms the most commonly sold mushroom will contain 869 percent the daily value of vitamin D once exposed to just five minutes of UV light after being harvested . If confirmed, that would be more than what's in two tablespoons of cod liver oil, one of the richest and most detested natural sources of the vitamin, according to the National Institutes of Health.
