All-natural, vegan vitamin D from mushrooms!!
An exciting new ingredient and an exciting new taste have come together to form the new AIM Veggie D™. A vitamin D powerhouse, Veggie D derives its D from an all-natural source never before found in a beverage: shiitake and button mushrooms. Combined with a blend of twelve vegetables and lycopene-rich tomatoes, the mushrooms give Veggie D a savory taste—smooth and rich in a beverage concentrate or hearty and full-flavored in a soup or sauce.
The new Veggie D is unlike any other vitamin D product you can find, and it gives the AIM product lineup a savory, satisfying taste treat.
The science behind the product
Few companies can boast an all-natural, food source of vitamin D. And none can say their D comes from both shiitake and button mushrooms.
AIM is the first.
Veggie D provides 500 International Units (IU) of vitamin D per serving, 126 percent of the Daily Recommended Intake (US). AIM chose
mushrooms as a source of vitamin D2 over animal sources of vitamin D3, which are primarily derived from lanolin or sheep wax.
Wild mushrooms naturally create vitamin D2 when exposed to sunlight.
Commercially grown mushrooms are grown in the dark and only contain a minimal amount of vitamin D. AIM’s mushrooms are exposed to UVB light, which simulates natural sunlight exposure. After this short exposure to UVB light, the mushrooms are dried and milled into powder.
