- Pangasius is high in protein, about 23% to 28% per 100 grams of fish meat. Pangasius protein is easier to digest and absorb than meat protein. Pangasius protein also contains all the necessary amino acids and has an essential amino acid ratio suitable to the needs of the human body.
- Pangasius is low in fat, about 3.5% per 100 grams of fish meat. Pangasius fat is mainly unsaturated fat, accounting for 50% to 70% of the total lipids. Unsaturated fats help reduce bad cholesterol, prevent cardiovascular disease, and strengthen the brain and resistance.
- Pangasius is very low in cholesterol, about 22 to 25 milligrams per 100 grams of fish meat. Cholesterol is a fat found in the human body, but if too much will cause blood vessel and heart diseases. Pangasius is a safe and good food for people with cholesterol problems.
- Pangasius is high in omega-3, about 0.8 to 1.2 grams per 100 grams of fish meat. Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid that the body cannot synthesize on its own, so it must be provided from food. Omega-3 has two main forms: EPA and DHA, which play an important role in maintaining the health of the brain, eyes, heart and joints. Pangasius is a good source of omega-3 for children, pregnant and lactating women.
- Pangasius is high in phosphorus and calcium, about 200 to 250 milligrams per 100 grams of fish meat. Phosphorus and calcium are two minerals necessary for bones and teeth. Phosphorus also regulates energy, participates in metabolism and maintains the body’s pH. Pangasius is a good source of phosphorus and calcium for people with osteoporosis, the elderly and children.
- Pangasius is rich in vitamin B12, about 1.5 to 2 micrograms per 100 grams of fish meat. Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that supports hematopoiesis, protects the nervous system, enhances memory and prevents aging. Pangasius is a good source of vitamin B12 for anemic people, stressed people and the elderly.
