The fish of today and the fish of the future

With New Year’s resolutions, we always consider making changes in our diet food. If this year you have decided to make a change in your diet and at the same time help the planet not to be destroyed, you can start by changing the fish that we find in all supermarkets today for the fish of the future; that is, the fish of all life for vegan fish.

This is how the Isauki´s no-shrimps look like, ¿did you imagine them like this?

Today’s fish versus vegan fish

Fish is a food that is obtained from the oceans and seas, contains animal protein and is considered an important source of protein and nutrients, such as omega-3 and vitamin D. However, fish can also contain contaminants and toxins due to water pollution and the fishing industry.

On the other hand, vegan fish is an option that is made from plant-based ingredients and is designed to mimic the taste and texture of fish. Although it does not contain animal protein or the nutrients found in fish, vegan fish is a good alternative for those looking for a vegetarian or vegan choice without the risks of contamination, or for people who have seafood allergies.
