The low-calorie, low-fat white fish that is popular the world over!
Cod might be the best known type of white fish, and it is certainly loved the world over. In Japan too cod is reasonably-priced and popular among ordinary people.
Cod is low in calories and packed with vitamins and minerals. It contains inosinic and glutamic acid which give it that subtle but delicious umami flavor.
And cod is also easy to digest, making it perfect for anyone recovering from illness, for infants, and for dieters.
Packed with the nutrients we aren’t getting enough of!
Cod is packed with vitamins A and D, nutrients which many people these day aren’t getting enough of.
Since vitamin A protects the mucous membranes, it boosts the immune system and helps prevent colds.
Vitamin D promotes the absorption of calcium and phosphorus, supporting strong teeth and bones and helping to prevent osteoporosis.
Great for tired eyes and beautifying too!
Cod is also said to be good for relieving worn out eyes, which makes it a great tonic for modern life where we spend so much time with our eyes fixed on computer, TV and phone screens.
And since it helps to protect the skin’s mucous membrane and promote good circulation, it is great for your looks too!
