Monterey Mushrooms Launches Vitamin D Enriched Sun Grill-A-Bella and White Mushrooms

New mushrooms offer 100 percent of recommended daily Vitamin D intake in 3-ounce servings

MONTEREY, Calif., May 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Through a truly collaborative research effort with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Monterey Mushrooms, Inc. has been successful in replicating what happens in nature when mushrooms are exposed to light.

Mushrooms respond to light the same way humans do, by converting the sun rays into Vitamin D. By exposing mushrooms to ultra violet light, the stable level of Vitamin D is increased to a minimum of 100 percent of the level recommended by the FDA. This increased Vitamin D does not include any additives, supplements, or chemicals. The Vitamin D is stable - maintaining its nutritional value even after cooking or freezing. The mushroom's daily dose of Vitamin D is essential for absorption of calcium and magnesium in the body, which helps to maintain bone strength.

This nationwide launch is just in time for the summer grilling season. Mushrooms, especially Sun Grill-A-Bella (Portabella) Mushrooms are the perfect meatless substitute for steaks or burgers. They are easy to prepare for summer meals by grilling with simple ingredients such as olive oil and seasoning. Sun Grill-A-Bella Portabellas are sold as sliced Portabella Mushrooms and Portabella Caps in 8-ounce tray packs. The product packaging is made from 100 percent composite, recyclable material and is available nationwide in stores.
