The Food Standards Agency (FSA) recommends that everybody should be eating oil-rich fish, such as salmon, more often to benefit from its long chain Omega 3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA.
Former FSA Chairman, Sir John Krebs, said “Eating oil-rich fish is a simple way for people to reduce the risks of heart disease, but most people don’t eat any”. Eating just one portion of oil-rich fish a week has clear-cut health benefits”.
The FSA advice shows that the following subgroups can eat the following amounts of oil-rich fish, such as salmon, to gain maximum health benefits:
~ Men, boys and women past child-bearing age can eat up to four portions a week;
~ Women not intending to have children can eat up to four portions a week
~ Girls and women who may become pregnant at some point in their lives can eat up to two portions a week, and;
~ Pregnant and breast-feeding women can eat up to two portions a week.
~ A vital ingredient of a healthy diet, salmon provides vitamins, minerals and proteins with low levels of saturated fat.
