Nutritional Value

Mackerel belongs to the group of oil-rich fish due to its high fat content. Specifically, 100 gr. of an edible portion of this fish give 10 gr. of fat. The fat found in oil-rich fish, therefore in mackerel, is rich in omega-3 fatty acid. This helps to decrease the cholesterol triglyceride levels in blood, making it more fluid, reducing the risk of clots or thrombus.

Mackerel's meat is a good source of proteins with a highly biologic value and it contains different vitamins and minerals. Among the vitamins, group B can mainly be found, as B1, B2, B3, B6 and B12. Vitamin B12 in mackerel is present in a considerable amount, even more than in eggs and the majority of meats or foodstuff from animal origin, therefore, mackerel is a natural source of this vitamin.

Mackerel has also liposoluble vitamins as A, D and E, which are in its entrails and muscle: Vitamin D favours the absorption of Calcium; vitamin A contributes to the support, growth and repair of the mucus, skin and other body tissue. Vitamin E has an antioxidant power which is an important protective against some degenerative or cardiovascular illnesses and cancer.
