Congratulations to Scelta Mushrooms


We warmly congratulate Scelta Mushrooms for their new innovative Vitamin D Mushroom product: Ecopouch® Mushrooms with Vitamin D. The freshly harvested mushrooms are boiled in their own juice. No blanching (which is bad for flavour and nutrients) and definitely nothing else is added: no salt, no other ingredients, no E-numbers, which guarantees an excellent taste and mouthfeel similar to fresh mushrooms! Ecopouch® Vitamin D Mushrooms with a two year ambient shelf life are ready to use right away, making them perfect for adding to pizzas, salads and burgers.
We wish Scelta Mushrooms continued success for the future with their innovative new mushroom product!

Congratulations to The Greenery, Jarno Goesten and Limax

Since 15th March 2019 Vitamin D Mushrooms are finally available in all Jumbo supermarkets in Netherlands produced by The Greenery, Jarno Goesten Champignons and Limax with Luxidum´s Vitamin D-Boosters.

We wish The Greenery, Jarno Goesten Champignons and Limax continued success for the future with their innovative product of Vitamin D Mushrooms!

Once again we warmly congratulate Pilzland to their progressive step towards a more healthy and sustainable nutrition!

Congratulations: Pilzland / Kaufland passed the test!


The investigation by Stiftung Warentest was:

“Vitamin D-Pilze: Halten diese Champignons, was sie versprechen?”

Vitamin D Mushrooms: Do these mushrooms deliver what they promise?

Stiftung Warentest is a non-profit German consumer organisation which investigates and compares goods and services of different providers on behalf of the state.

Stiftung Warentest determined the vitamin D content of the mushrooms in seven different packs. Main result: The Boosting process works – the average vitamin D content is 9.6 µg/100 g and thus significantly higher than that of normal cultivated mushrooms.

Congratulations to BioPilzland

Once again we warmly congratulate Pilzland to their progressive step towards a more healthy and sustainable nutrition!
BioPilzland is the first company in Europe and probably the first worldwide launching bio / organic Vitamin D Mushrooms named “SONNYS Vitamin D Pilze”. BioPilzland is as part of the company Pilzland Vertriebs GmbH. This novel mushroom product will be presented in February on the BIOFACH 2019, the world’s biggest organic trade fair.

Congratulations to Champignons Swisses and Champidistribution SA

Special acknowledgement from Luxidum to the CHAMPIDOR campaign for the absolute fantastic design and most ecological packaging!

Congratulations to Banken Champignons

We warmly congratulate Banken Champignons for being the first company in the Netherlands introducing the healthy Vitamin D Mushrooms.

Many tanks for their progressive and courageous course of action by submitting an Novel Food application, which is a great service to the whole EU mushroom industry! Since July 2018 their approval authorises in the EU now Vitamin D Mushrooms with a vitamin D content up to 20 µg/100 g.

The recommended daily intake published by EFSA of 15 µg/100 g can now be achieved by the consumption of a 100 g protion of fresh Vitamin D button mushrooms, making these mushrooms beside Salmon fish the best vitamin D food source available on the food market!

Luxidum wishs Banken a successfullmarket launch of Vitamin D Mushrooms!

Already announced some time ago, JenAct (Jenton Group) and Xenon finally bring their Pulsed UV Light Conveyor for Vitamin D-Mushrooms on the market.

In line with the slogan “competition is good for business”, we would like to congratulate to JenAct (Jenton Group) and Xenon and to express our respect for this huge R&D effort, which is underlined by a statement of JenAct director Dr Jaromir Bilek: “With so many important and competing technical and financial factors, it was probably one of the most complex projects ever carried out within the Jenton Group’s 40+ year history.”

A major issue (picture) concerns however their technical solution for the warranty of continuous protection of operators during the UV treatment via four curtain strips which get in contact with all fresh mushrooms in the punnet! This solution leads unfortunately to cross-contaminations (hygiene rules for food) and to a high risk of discolorations and/or undesired spots on the mushrooms at points of contact. For the EU market and larger mushroom companies, we would like to suggest to copy our proven solution of slalom-tracked punnet guides with 100% UV protection.

Beside the technical deficiencies of using curtain strips and short life-time of Pulsed UV Light bulbs, we highly appreciate JenAct´s contribution to a more healthy diet for the UK consumer via fresh and delicious Vitamin D-Mushrooms!
