What’s in the fish?
What we give our fish.
Yalelo fish enjoy a plant-based diet of local Zambian soy, maize and wheat. We never use antibiotics, chemicals or growth hormones. Because of our high quality and purity standards, our fish are safe for all consumers, including pregnant or nursing women and young children. Our fish is naturally gluten-free and does not contain mercury or other contaminants. Your complete satisfaction is the No.1 priority for Zambia’s No. 1 Fish!
What our fish give you.
Our tilapia has a wealth of nutrients, vitamins and minerals that are beneficial for you, your friends and your family! Every serving of tilapia gives you protein, omega-3 fatty acids, selenium, potassium, vitamin B12, vitamin D, vitamin B6, and pantothenic acid. That sounds good, but what does it mean?
Growth and Development
Tilapia is good for growth and development. Yalelo tilapia has an impressive amount of protein! One serving of Tilapia has 21 grams of protein but only one gram of fat, making Tilapia a great source of lean protein. Protein is directly linked to proper growth and development of organs, membranes, cells, and muscles. It is particularly important that children consume adequate amounts of protein to ensure that they develop properly.
Look Good, Feel Good.
Tilapia makes you look and feel good. Yalelo tilapia can help you lose weight because it is low in calories and fats. It is a good way to reduce your caloric intake, while still giving your body all the necessary nutrients it needs. Tilapia also has selenium, an antioxidant, which stimulates vitamin E and C, both of which improve the quality and health of your skin. This means a reduction in wrinkles, sagging, and other signs of aging.
Boost Your Brain!
Tilapia boosts your brain. Both the potassium and vitamin B12 found in tilapia have been connected to boosting brain power and increasing neurological function. Potassium increases oxygenation to the brain and vitamin B12 helps improve your memory and concentration. Yalelo tilapia is an especially good food source for students and other people who need to concentrate throughout the day.
Tilapia strengthens your bones. One of the most prominent minerals found in tilapia is phosphorous which is a vital part of the development and growth of bone matter. It is also a necessary element in the maintenance of the teeth and nails, keeping them strong and durable well into your old age. Phosphorous can help prevent osteoporosis, which is the degradation of bone mineral density often suffered by people as they age.
