Nutritional values

The trace element iron, which is responsible for the transport of oxygen to all organs and tissues, is already contained in one portion to half of our daily requirement - as is the mineral magnesium, an activator for 300 enzymes in the body that control metabolic processes.

Tilapia is a freshwater fish that supplies little iodine. If you want more of this trace element, which is important for the thyroid gland, then take pollock fillet (cook 2 minutes longer).
