Serving up a Feast at the Australian Open 2023
Barramundi are rich in Omega-3s, and boasts high concentration of polyunsaturated fats, and high levels of selenium, which all help in recovery & maintaining a healthy body. This year we’re serving our large Etty Bay & Wyndham baby Barramundi, as well as new products such as hot & cold smoked products.
Previously we discussed the health components of Barramundi with National Performance Dietitian for Tennis Australia, Joanna Shinewell who recommended barramundi to players at Australian Open because of its competitive edge. Joanna said although fish is a reliable source of omega 3 for athletes, the high concentration of polyunsaturated fats found in barramundi makes it especially ideal for recovery.
“Proteins helps grow and repair muscles and omega 3 relieves muscle inflammation, which are both common problems for athletes during a tournament. EPA helps fight inflammation while DHA is essential for brain development and cardiovascular health, which is exactly what you want when you’re recovering between matches.”
“Barramundi also contains high levels of selenium, an antioxidant which helps cleanse the body of nasty chemicals that build when you’re pushing your body to the edge,” Shinewell said.
Among the 11 types of omega 3s, eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and docosahexaenoic (DHA) are considered essential by health experts because they cannot be produced by the human body.
