Fish and Mediterranean Diet

The Mediterranean Diet reflects, as the name implies, the typical dietary habits of the people of the Mediterranean countries. In the pyramid of the Mediterranean diet the groups of food are “ranked” from the base to its top according to how often they should be included in our diet.

It is recommended, according to the pyramid, that we consume fish 2 or 3 times a week, because contain vitamin B complex and iron. Their content in fat varies from species to species. Nevertheless, the fat that the fish contains, the ω3 fatty acids, belongs to the so called “good” fat, that is the fat which has been proven to be beneficial to the body and particularly the heart. Along with the provision of amino acids and fat, our fish provide you with a number of vitamins and minerals, such as vitamins A and D as well as those of the B complex (B1, B2, B3 and B12) while the main minerals found in fish and sea food are calcium, phosphorus, zinc and iodine.

Scientific research has confirmed that fish is a unique source of the ω3 polyunsaturated fatty acids.

According to the health claim which was approved under the EU Regulation 1924/2006, the consumption of farmed Sea Bream and Sea Bass, as a rich source of ω3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (EPA & DHA) and as part of a healthy lifestyle, helps maintaining normal heart function, maintaining normal blood pressure and normal levels of triglycerides in the blood.

Therefore the consumption of Nireus’ Sea bass and Sea bream twice a week shields the body and provides all the beneficial properties of ω3 polyunsaturated fatty acids.
