Rob Banken introduced the Mushroom with Vitamin D during Fruit Logistica 2016
Vitamin D through a natural process
"Mushrooms naturally contain ergosterol, which is turned into vitamin D by sunlight. By copying this natural process, we stimulate the production of vitamin D in our mushrooms. Vitamin D is maintained during the processing and preparation. We foresee selected mushrooms of vitamin D and offer the consumer a tasty product that improves health."
About vitamin D
"Vitamin D is one of the few vitamins that the body creates through sunlight touching the skin. When the sun is weaker or when the body isn't exposed to enough sunlight, it doesn't make enough vitamin D. This can lead to a lower resistance, weaker bones and other health problems. The shortage can be improved with vitamin D mushrooms, supplements or other foods like fatty fish, meat, eggs. We supply mushrooms with 10 micrograms of vitamin D which is equal to the recommended daily amount."
Banken Champignons will be present at the international fair Fruit Logistica from 7 to 9 February 2018. Banken Champignons can be found in hall 3.2, stall number C-15.
