Shark nutritional information, with data on the nutritional composition and protein, fat, vitamin and mineral values of this delicious semi-fat fish.
We recently learned about the main benefits of the shark, a fish that is actually very interesting in terms of its nutritional contribution, thanks to the fact that it contains very few fats and calories, and is also extremely rich in proteins of high biological value (therefore providing most of the essential amino acids), minerals and vitamins.
The truth is that in our country it tends to be originally a very little consumed fish, something that does not happen in other parts of the world where there is a great culinary tradition in this sense. In China, for example, the popular shark fin soup is very common, which in fact in our country we can find in typical Chinese and Japanese restaurants.
One of its main advantages, in addition to its nutritional wealth, is that we can find it practically all year round in fish markets and markets, although the downside is that it is not always easy to find it.
As we indicated at the beginning of this note, and as we will learn more in detail below, the shark stands out above all for its good quality protein content. It provides very little fat – and therefore is a low calorie food – and is rich in vitamins (especially vitamins A and E) and minerals (iron, phosphorus, potassium and magnesium).
