Frozen Seafood Myths

Frozen Seafood Myths

 

When it comes to frozen seafood, people have some strange misconceptions. Romanticizing the idea of “fresh fish,” they often discount the very real nutritional value of frozen fish! The truth is, frozen seafood contains a wealth of important nutrients, as well as being tasty, convenient, and easy to prepare. Here, we debunk some of the common myths related to frozen seafood and fish in general.

  • Myth #1: Frozen fish is less nutritious than fresh fish. This is unequivocally false. Because fishing vessels remain at sea for long periods of time, the “fresh fish” you purchase has often been sitting around for a while before it reaches you. However, modern freezing methods allow for quick freezing of seafood to maintain quality and freshness. Frozen fish makes it to your table with the freshness locked in—just as nutritious and delicious as if you’d pulled the fish  from the water yourself.
  • Myth #2: Other meats are just as nutritious as fish. The fact is, fish are an excellent source of lean protein, amino acids, and Omega-3 fatty acids. Unlike fatty beef,  pork or poultry products, fish is low in saturated fat, and the nutrients in fish fight a number of ailments, including cardiovascular disease. In fact, the American Heart Association recommends eating at least two servings of fish a week. Many of the frozen seafood products available from Morey’s Seafood are gluten free, which is great for those looking for a convenient and tasty meal as part of a gluten-free diet.
  • Myth #3: Fishing is bad for the environment. Many trustworthy manufacturers, including frozen seafood brands like Morey’s Seafood, focus on sustainable and safe fishing methods to ensure the safety of the environment, and the regulation and control of fishing practices.
  • Myth #4: Frozen seafood is hard to cook. This is Morey’s favorite falsehood to disprove! Morey’s offers a wide array of pre-portioned, individually packaged, marinated frozen seafood products that are both delicious and easy to cook. The Morey’s website also offers a wealth of recipes designed to make it quick and convenient to put delicious seafood on your family’s table.

The Benefits of Omega-3 Fatty Acids in Seafood Products

You may have already heard about omega-3 fatty acids, but you might not know the extent of what they can do for you! That’s because it seems like new studies are constantly popping up, extolling new aspects of omega-3 benefits, and giving us ever more reasons to incorporate them into a healthy diet. From infant brain development to the prevention of heart disease, it seems there are few health conditions that can’t be improved with omega-3 consumption.

  • What, exactly, are omega-3 fatty acids? It may sound like something out of science fiction, but omega-3 are actually a type of unsaturated fatty acid that is extremely beneficial, especially when found in fish. This nutrient is believed to reduce inflammation throughout the body, which is good, because inflammation in the body can damage blood vessels and lead to heart disease.
  • If I’m not worried about heart disease, why should I care about omega-3? Omega-3 fatty acid benefits also may include decreased triglycerides, lower blood pressure, reduced blood clotting, higher immunity, and improvement of arthritis symptoms. Omega-3s are also great for children, and may help improve their ability to learn, and help with behavioral or attention-related issues.
  • Alright, I’m sold! Now, what are some sources of omega-3 fatty acids? There are many omega-3 sources, including nuts, flaxseed, and soybeans. However, these omega-3 foods are not the best sources, because the human body does not absorb the omega-3 from them very well. Fish, on the other hand, is an excellent source of these essential fatty acids, one that is also loaded with protein. The American Heart Association recommends eating at least two servings of fish each week. The fish most packed with omega-3 are fatty fish like salmon, mackerel, herring, lake trout, sardines, and albacore tuna.
  •  Does frozen seafood contain the same benefits as fresh? The best news about omega-3 fatty acids is that they can be readily found in frozen seafood, which is convenient, easy to prepare, and delicious. The fish retains not only its nutrients, but also the mouthwatering taste it would have had if you’d pulled it from the water yourself.

For over seventy five years, Morey’s Seafood has been putting great, nutritious seafood, full of protein and Omega-3 fatty acids, onto dinner tables across America.

What to Check for When Purchasing Frozen Seafood

Frozen Seafood

Whether fresh or frozen, seafood is one of nature’s perfect foods! Packed with essential nutrients, including protein and Omega-3 fatty acids, seafood is an important part of a healthy diet that helps children to grow and develop properly, and may even help prevent heart disease. In fact, it seems as though scientists are always finding new ways that seafood is beneficial, from lowering cholesterol to improving vision and eye health! Frozen seafood brings all the goodness of seafood to your home, even if you’re half a world away from its source!

With a wealth of frozen seafood brands from which to choose, it’s important to select those that are reputable and provide high quality product. Whichever frozen seafood products you decide to buy, follow a few guidelines to make sure it is the best frozen seafood you can find.

  • Make sure the packaging is intact. Never buy seafood if the package is open, torn, or crushed on the edges.
  • Choose packages that are free from frost or ice crystals. The presence of ice might mean that the frozen fish has been stored for a long time, or that it has thawed and been refrozen.
  • Keep frozen seafood in the freezer. Do not thaw seafood until you are ready to prepare it. Once you’re ready to use it, the best method is to thaw it slowly overnight in the refrigerator. Of course, many seafood products can be cooked straight from the freezer—no thawing required!

Frozen seafood makes it easy to serve your family delectable, restaurant-quality fish, straight from your own freezer!
