Rooster (fish): benefits and properties

Benefits of rooster fish, and information on the different nutritional properties that rooster provides, a delicious and ideal white fish in balanced diets.

Although the rooster is a bird of the genus Gallus which is raised for its meat (and in the case of chickens, for their eggs), there is also a fish that is also known by this name.

Specifically, it is also known by the names of rooster of the North or Iliseria, which belongs to the so-called family of flatfish, which are characterized by having the eyes on the left side of the body.

It is expected in the North Sea, in the western Mediterranean and in the waters of the Atlantic, and although its best season goes between the months of March and April, it is possible to find it on the market all year round.

It is possible to confuse the rooster with other similar species, such as the Arnoglosus genus, but the reality is that they do not belong to the same genus, and therefore they are not even similar.

It is an ideal fish for the diet of the little ones, due to its soft texture and flavor (in this case, the mother or father must remove their bones carefully).

Nutritional properties of the rooster

The rooster is a white fish (this group of foods is also known by the name of lean fish ), so that its fat content is really low: 100 grams of rooster provide 1.9 fat and only 80 calories, somewhat more than others white fish such as sole or hake .

It provides a greater amount of proteins of high biological value compared to other lean fish, although in relation to its contribution in vitamins the truth is that it only provides folic acid and vitamin B6.

Regarding the presence of minerals, we can name iodine, phosphorus, sodium, potassium, magnesium and iron.

As with most white fish, the rooster is very easy to digest, so its consumption is recommended for people with digestive problems.

Among its vitamins we highlight folic acid, essential for the mother who wants to get pregnant, but not only during pregnancy but also before pregnancy (since it prevents defects in the placenta, and reduces the risk of defects in the brain and the spine vertebral in the fetus).

It provides interesting amounts of potassium, phosphorus and magnesium (fundamental in short for the proper functioning of our body and for our health). Also, iodine helps in the proper functioning of the thyroid gland, while iron helps prevent iron deficiency anemia.
