Why are fish tins healthy?

Did you know that fish tins are a fully adequate alternative to fresh fish? They have the same nutritional value, contain no food preservatives and they are strictly controlled.

What are the advantages?

Fish tins are food that is rich in healthy substances: they contain high-quality proteins, phosphorus, vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids.

Fish proteins

Fish proteins belong to the HIGH-QUALITY proteins. They supply our body with all essential amino acids so that we will remain healthy and vital.

How often?

Nutritionists recommend us to eat fish at least two times a week consuming at least 300 g.

A rich protein source

Proteins contribute to the renewal of tissues and cells and play a decisive role for our health. 100 g of dripped trout in olive oil contain 24 g of proteins, i.e., more than a raw beefsteak of the same weight contains.

Rich in phosphorus

Together with calcium phosphorus ensures strong bones and teeth. 100 g of trout in olive oil cover approximately 20 % of the daily requirement of phosphorus.

Vitamin and mineral source

Trout belongs to the most nutrient kinds of fish because it contains vitamins and unsaturated fatty acids. They contribute to the regulation of the cholesterol level.

Vitamin B 12 and PP

Trout supplies two vitamins:

Vitamin B 12 helps to regulate the energy metabolism and the nervous system and vitamin PP (niacin) boosts a beautiful skin. 100 g of trout in olive oil supply approximately half of the daily requirement of vitamin PP, which is almost twice the amount contained in beef.

Omega-3 and 6-fatty acids

Omega-3 and 6-fatty acids protect against cardio-vascular diseases and play a decisive role for the intellectual development.

Kinds of fish rich in omega-3 and 6-fatty acids

By eating the following fish, we can supplement our food with omega-3-fatty acids: trout, salmon and fatty fish such as herring, mackerel and sardines.

Mackerel

Mackerel is a highly nutritious fish and a good supplier of vitamin A, calcium and iron. Through the consumption of mackerels, a large share of the recommended daily amount of essential omega-3 and 6-fatty acids is taken in.

Sardine

A tin of sardines supplies the same amount of calcium as a glass of full-cream milk. Moreover, tinned sardines contain vitamin D, which helps the body to absorb calcium.

Salmon

In tinned salmon, a large part of the nutrients in fresh fish is contained. Besides, the tinned fish supplies a large quantity of vitamin D: 100 g of the tin contain 130 µg of vitamin D, while the same quantity of fresh salmon contains 87µg. Moreover, tinned salmon supplies omega-3 and 6-fatty acids, calcium, zinc, magnesium and phosphorus.
