iVillage.com: Dr. Oz's Healthiest Superfoods -- How Many Are In Your Shopping Cart?

Supermarket Staple #20: Fish (Salmon, Cod or Trout)

Why It's a Must Have: Fish is a lean source of protein full of healthy omega-3 fatty acids, but many consumers have concerns about the safeness of eating farm raised fish (especially salmon and tilapia). “It is true that farm raised fish are lower in omega-3s and higher in omega-6s compared to wild fish, if fed the typical fish farm diet of corn and soy,” says Dr. Oz. But that doesn’t mean you should cross it off your list, since it’s still a great source of lean protein.

Budget Bonus: “I look for wild caught fish in the store, but I understand that wild caught fish can be expensive and harder to find,” Dr. Oz says. And while wild caught fish will give you the best bang for your nutritional buck, if it’s too tough to find, find out where your fish originated. “Keep in mind when purchasing farm-raised fish, many third-party groups that track fish farm practices suggest buying from American or South American farms, as opposed to ones in Southeast Asia.”
