Fish, of all animal origin foods, is one of the most digestible and nutritious. It is essential for a healthy, balanced diet. Traditional Mediterranean cooking contains numerous recipes based on fish, from starters to first and main courses. History, tradition and skill have taught us over time how to cook and preserve fish, a permanent feature of our diet, for good, healthy eating.
Fish is not just Omega-3
Among the many virtues of fish, we should first mention that its fats help reduce blood cholesterol levels, it is easily digested and it is suitable for all ages, from babies upwards.
Fish is a really important food, because of its nutritional values:
it is rich in water – about 60-80% of its composition (depending on type of fish)
it is rich in first-class proteins – about 15-23% - containing essential amino acids that we can only find in our food
it is rich in fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E) contained especially in fish liver, and in water-soluble ones (B1, B2, B6 and B12)
it is rich (sea fish especially) in mineral salts such as selenium, iodine, phosphorus, zinc and iron
it has a low fat content (0.5-20% depending on type of fish)
Unlike fat from meat, fish fats (particularly from our seas) are very rich in Omega-3 unsaturated fatty acids, especially EPA and DHA. According to recent studies, these fatty acids prevent numerous cardiovascular diseases and during pregnancy encourage good development of the nervous system.
These fatty acids also help reduce levels of triglycerides and cholesterol, stop clotting around plaques and prevent them from blocking blood circulation.
Fish normally has fairly low cholesterol content. When more cholesterol is present, as in shellfish, nutritional quality is guaranteed by an absence of saturated fats.
So remember – fish is a precious part of our diet!
