The VITAMIN D Home Lab focus on the known “Winter Depression” derived by VITAMIN D deficiency,
it is one of the most common deficiencies in the world.

Due to environmental concerns, the questions about our dietary or the search for natural
medical alternatives became relevant and urgent.  
Mushrooms are the only non-animal source of food with Vitamin D found. Meaning, 1 serving of mushrooms enriched with UVB light can cover the one person’s daily the recommended amount of Vitamin D.

The VITAMIN D Home Lab aims to showcase the breakdown of the process of enrichment of mushrooms with Vitamin D, emerging in the user into a mindset of home farming and self-sustainable practices.
“What if you could make your own VITAMIN D at home?”

The VITAMIN D Home Lab is a laboratorial station with tools for watering, harvesting and cutting slices that aims to help engage into the ritual, where we could speculate of a home bio-production of a medicine. It aims to give knowledge of an alternate / self-sustaining production of Vitamin D.

The VITAMIN D Home Lab was made in collaboration and gained a solid ground thanks to Mattias Andersson,
scientist from KTH Royal Institute of Technology envolved in the studies of the process of enrichment of Fungi
with Vitamin D
in Sweden and to Rikard Pedersen from Saxtrop Svamp.
