Vitamin D Rich Food #6: Mushrooms

Mushrooms are another one of the few foods high in vitamin D. However, not every mushroom contains vitamin D. Shiitake and white button mushrooms are some of the mushroom types with significant amounts of vitamin D. But these mushrooms need to be exposed to the ultraviolet rays of the sun as they grow to synthesize the vitamin. Mushrooms dried under the sun also have substantial amounts of vitamin D. Besides, the amount of vitamin D in mushrooms is dependent on the length of exposure to the sun.

A cup of sun-dried, diced mushrooms can provide more than 100 IUs of vitamin D. Mushrooms are also a good source of some B vitamins and minerals like iron, copper and phosphorus.
