Since arriving in France several years ago, sushi has become very trendy and continues to gain new followers every day! Today, around 22% of the French population consumes it at least once a month according to a study carried out by the Norwegian Seafood Center.
Whether at noon with colleagues or in the evening with the family, eating sushi is friendly and brings happiness and laughter (especially when a colleague is fighting with his chopsticks!). But to stay more serious, eating sushi also brings a lot of benefits to your body!
Eat sushi, it’s good for your health!
The first ingredient in sushi, rice, is low in calories and rich in vitamin B1 and phosphorus which convert carbohydrates into energy and increase physical performance.
Rice quickly brings the body to a feeling of satiety, ideal for cutting hunger while keeping the figure. And it’s a perfect compromise for people with allergies to gluten.
Also rich in protein as meat, fish brings many nutrients essential to the human body such as potassium, selenium, phosphorus, iron, the zinc … It also contains fat up to 20% for fish the fatter like tuna, salmon, and mackerel.
But rest assured, it’s good fats like unsaturated fatty acids and omega 3s that promote good cardiovascular health.
There is also the nori seaweed used mainly in maki and California rolls which we tend to forget but which also brings undeniable benefits!
Similar to the nutritional intake of fish, seaweed is also a source of vitamin A, antioxidants, and vitamin C which protects against infections.
