Which fish contains the most FATTY ACIDS?


Fatty acids are essential for our bodies because they help to control cholesterol. Fish, mainly oily fish, is a food with Omega 3 and is necessary for a balanced diet. If you don’t know which fish contain the most fatty acids and you want to include them in your diet, take a look at our rankings and make a note of the most nutritious fish with fatty acids. Do you know them?

On the other hand, and given that a diet rich in fatty acids will help us prevent a buildup of cholesterol (or to help cope with it), you can’t just rely on a food calorie counter such as the one from BioTrendies to correct our diets.
