Tilapia is a tropical freshwater fish that is being touted as a major aquaculture resource for the future. The flesh is white, slightly firm and flaky with a mild somewhat bland, taste which lends itself to the use of sauces and seasonings. Farmed raised in Costa Rica and Ecuador, Tilapia is a mild tasting fish, and has the perfect combination of texture and taste. Tilapia is such a versatile fish, it is one of the fastest consumed fish in the US.
Tilapia is listed as “Good Alternative” on the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s “Seafood Watch” list.
Tilapia is rich in protein, with nearly 23 g in 4 oz., or 45 percent of the daily value based on a 2,000-calorie diet. The protein found in tilapia is considered "complete" protein, as it contains all of the essential amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein that must be obtained in the diet. Protein is needed for the building and repair of the body's tissues and also provides a feeling of satisfaction after eating.
A 4-oz. serving of tilapia provides 11.3 percent of the daily value for calcium and 10 percent of the daily value for potassium. Calcium is important for the health of the teeth and bones and works with potassium to conduct electrical impulses in the body. Potassium is needed for muscle contraction and for heart function, and diets high in potassium have also been linked with bone health.
Each bag contains 2 fillets averaging 5-7 ounces each.
