Sushi and Health

< Back

Eating a diet rich in healthy fish can bring significant health benefits.

Virtually all of the fish and shellfish we serve contain Omega-3 fatty acids. These “good fats” are necessary for human health, but they must come from food since the body cannot produce them. Omega-3s are thought to play an essential role in brain function as well as normal growth and development. Research has also shown them to be helpful in reducing inflammation and in supporting cognitive and behavioral function. We perform comprehensive tests for fatty acids on our salmon, a species that is generally considered to be a rich source of Omega-3s. Our salmon contains 3.8% Omega-3s, a level above the typical 1.3 – 2.3% range for salmon (source:  American Heart Association’s website, March 1, 2010.)

We test our entire Trust Me menus for overall nutritional content, and are pleased that our Trust Me menus represent a healthy balance of protein, fat, and carbohydrate that is relatively low in calories. Eating a level of calories appropriate for maintaining healthy body weight is also beneficial to overall health. According to dinewise.com, a 35-year-old, 5’5”, moderately active woman who weighs 120 pounds should consume 1,942 calories a day. A 35-year-old, 5’10”, moderately active man who weighs 180 pounds should consume 2,850 calories a day.

Nutritional tests were performed on all of the Trust Me menus we serve at SUGARFISH.  Below is the detailed information for each individual Trust Me and Set Menu.
