For as long as I can remember, I have considered sushi a pretty healthy meal. I’m not talking about tempura or rolls covered in sauce, I’m talking about straight up fish and rice, or nigirizushi for the people who want to get technical.
The more I think about it though, it’s basically high fat, high carbs, and medium high protein. What are peoples thoughts on the overall health of such a meal?
Also, most restaurants use vinegar combination’s to make the rice sticky, some of which contain sugar. While I was browsing through the ingredients list on the back of a sushi pack from Drager’s (high end/over priced grocer) I noticed that high fructose corn syrup was listed as part of the sticky rice concoction. Is this common practice?
Any thoughts or info would be great…they want to know
