Seafood is an excellent food source and is considered healthy, nutritious and essential to a balanced diet. Seafoods are low in saturated fat, often high in Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids and protein rich. Seafood is a good source of Vitamins (A, B, C, D), Riboflavin, Niacin, and minerals like Iron, Magnesium, Calcium, Copper, Selenium and Iron.
We work with nutritionists and food scientists to ensure that our process does not change the natural nutrition balance required by consumers. All Quin Sea Brand seafood is wild-caught providing quality and nutrition as nature intended.
