Rio Mare Tuna: healthy goodness
Now we know: fish is a key constituent of a healthy and balanced diet, rich in substances that are beneficial to our bodies.
Rio Mare chooses the best fish to bring flavour and fragrance to our tables. It has been this way since the outset and this is why Rio Mare Tuna in Olive Oil has been served on millions of tables.
Its success is down to its quality. Rio Mare only uses the best tuna, Quality Yellowfin, from the most unpolluted seas. The fish is carefully chosen to guarantee the highest levels of quality, and is canned adding only pure olive oil and a pinch of sea salt: no preservatives and no flavourings.
This is how canned tuna, mackerel, sardines and salmon arrives on our tables, with the majority of its nutritional qualities intact, in quality controlled packaging that guarantees the freshness of the product, and helps those that live further away from the sea to consume the optimum quantities of fish for their diets.
1-2 portions of fish per week help to protect our heart and blood vessels. Research carried out in the US by Harvard Medical School on around 20,000 individuals has confirmed that the consumption of fish rich in Omega 3 (such as salmon and mackerel) contributes to the prevention of cardiovascular problems.
Choosing foods that are rich in protein but that contain little saturated fat, such as tuna, contributes to the physical and mental development of the young and helps adults to stay healthy.
