Seafood has many nutritional benefits, here’s what we know…
Seafood is full of 'Vitamin Sea', omega-3 Fatty acids and Protein.
Seafood is a great choice for boosting protein, whilst at the same time helping to keep the heart healthy and the blood pressure normal. Fish is the main naturally occurring source of two specific omega-3 fats – DHA and EPA that have been linked to good health and vital for keeping our brain functioning normally and helping us to maintain good vision. Boom!
Some types of shellfish, such as Mussels, Oysters, Squid and Crab are good sources of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids; Shellfish also often contain copper, zinc and iodine. Oily fish are the richest source of long chain omega-3 these include Herring, Pilchards, Salmon, Sardines, Sprats, Trout and Mackerel. We should be aiming to eat one portion a week.
Another benefit to choosing fish is that it comes with a wide range of other vitamins and minerals. Amounts vary depending on the variety but most fish provide phosphorus, selenium and vitamin B12. White fish usually provide potassium and vitamins B3 and B6 white fish include Cod, Haddock, Pollock, Red Mullet, and Tilapia. You can safely eat as much white fish as often as you like, although Sea bream, Seabass, Turbot and Halibut should be limited. Oily fish provides potassium and vitamins B3 and B6. Oily fish are also one of the few naturally rich food sources of vitamin D which is needed for the maintenance of normal bones and teeth, as well as keeping the immune system working normally and the muscles functioning properly.
So why don’t you ‘Mullet’ over then visit us online or in store to find your catch of the day.
