Cod is a truly wild fish and one of the healthiest protein foods that can be included in our diet. A white fish, cod stands out for its content in high biological value proteins, in minerals (iodine, phosphorus, sodium, potassium and iron) and complex B vitamins.
Its fat is concentrated on the liver of the fish, from where cod-liver oil, a source of vitamins A and D, is extracted. Codfish production is free of chemicals and, besides being easy to digest, this fish also helps protect the cardiovascular system and prevent several illnesses.
Bacalhau is the Portuguese word for Cod and this fish is a key ingredient in Portuguese cuisine. This includes simple, everyday dishes, as well as elaborate versions that are usually served on special occasions, including Christmas Eve and Good Friday.
