The Health Food of the Century

Seafood has been called ‘the health food of the century’, and for good reason. A single serving of fish provides up to 60% of your daily protein needs, it’s lower in fat and calories than meat or poultry and can be a great source of omega-3’s.  The American Heart Association and the new USDA guidelines both recommend eating fish at least twice a week, and health experts from around the world tout the benefits of a seafood-rich diet.

The Mild White Fish Loaded With Omega-3s

One of the reasons fish is a ‘health hero’ is because it's a great source of omega-3 fatty acids - an essential nutrient that offers a broad range of health benefits. Clean Harvest Barramundi has 600 – 800 mg of omega-3s per 5-oz serving.  That’s comparable to wild Coho salmon, and unheard of in a mild-flavored, white fish! 

Ideal Ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3

The average American diet is considered  to be deficient in omega-3's and has more than ten times the ideal amount of omega-6's, which are considered inflamitory. Scientists recommend an optimal  omega-6 to 3 ratio not more than 3:1. Clean Harvest Barramundi has the ideal ratio of 1:1, so it is one of the healthiest foods you can eat.
