The Health Benefits of Tilapia

Thursday, June 6, 2024

The Parker Jewish Institute is proud of our culinary team. We encourage all Parker friends, whether a patient/resident, visitor or employee, to eat a well-balanced, nutritional diet.

Sustainably raised tilapia is a delicious high protein dish with many health benefits. Tilapia is a great source for vitamins and minerals like choline, niacin, vitamin B12, vitamin D, and phosphorus. It is also high in selenium, which can boost white blood cell activity, as well as reduce stress.
