The truth

Scurvy was once a common disease amongst sailors, explorers, and the military, as they were forced to eat foods high in preservatives and low in vitamin C (dry food) exclusively and for long periods of time. In recent years, scurvy rarely appears in developed countries, but scientists have pointed out that cases have even occurred nowadays in Australia and Britain, namely, because of poor eating habits (minimal to zero consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables; adequate consumption of vegetables low in vitamin C as they had undergone excessive boiling which destroyed quantities of the vitamin).

Experts agree that the key to a healthy, balanced diet is variety and moderation. To ensure the benefits of a healthy and balanced diet, one needs to eat foods from all food groups, in balanced amounts, and receive all the necessary nutrients.

By consuming canned fish, the consumer receives the necessary amount of omega-3 fatty acids valuable for the body. Omega-3 fatty acids are found in significant amounts in canned fish products, such as sardines, anchovies, mackerel, herring, and tuna. These acids contribute to the normal functioning of the heart, the brain, as well as the maintenance of normal vision, normal blood triglyceride levels, even normal blood pressure. So, by combining one’s favorite canned TRATA products with vegetables rich in vitamin C, which have not undergone intense heat treatment, one enjoys the benefits of a balanced diet.
