Vitamin D in mushrooms?

Apparently people are sunbathing mushrooms and it produces vitamin d2. Does anyone know if it's worth the five dollar price ?

I routinely place vegetables and fruit - mushrooms, greens, salads, onions, strawberries etc etc - into a sunny place a few hours before I plan to eat them. I am so pleased to read that mushrooms develop vitamin D from doing this! I just feel that if veg and fruit fresh from the garden are best for you, then fresh from a dark fridge must be as suboptimal as it is possible to be.

I rinse them, leave them damp, then place in a sunny spot. Indoors usually, working on the principle that if a pot plant can grow and survive on my window ledge, a cut veg or fruit can up the vitamin levels in it the same way.

I'm going to go with "probably not" - unless the other mushrooms at your store cost that much.

The mushrooms at my grocery store that make this vitamin-D related claim are $0.25 higher than the store brand mushrooms -- I take this as a brand-v-price difference, not a production difference - in both cases, "baby bellas" of that type are about ~$3 (for whatever size that is, I think it's 8oz). Full size portobellos tend to be more expensive - that might have been what you saw?
