The Vancouver Sun cracks open the Vita D Sunshine Eggs story

An Abbotsford-based farming innovation firm is launching the first egg that  contains 100 per cent of an adult’s daily requirement of vitamin D, as defined  by Health Canada.

Each Vitala Vita D Sunshine egg contains 200 IU of vitamin D – about five  micrograms – or seven times the amount found in a conventional egg, according to  Bill Vanderkooi, owner of Nutriva, the firm that developed the egg and feed  formula that produces it, and the parent company of Vitala.

A glass of milk fortified with vitamin D provides about 100 IU.
