Executive SummaryTotal Nutraceutical Solutions acquires an option to license a patented invention from Penn State University that can increase the vitamin D2 in mushrooms by up to 800 percent via pulsed UV light, the Spartanburg, S.C.-based firm says Nov. 24. "This breakthrough vitamin D technology is a perfect fit for our company, [which focuses on] the use of natural mushrooms and their contained bioactive components as a whole food approach to the prevention of disease," says TNS CEO Marvin S. Hausman. He adds that increased intake of the nutrient is underscored by the recent "call to action" by several University of California researchers, who advise that most U.S. adults should consume 2,000 IU of vitamin D daily (1"The Tan Sheet" Nov. 17, 2008, In Brief)
