Tuna itself is a great choice for a pâté, as it a meaty and flavourful fish, but also very nutritious! The fish contains high amounts of vitamin B12, a vitamin responsible for the production of red blood cells, and prevention of the development of anaemia. The content of omega-3 fatty acids in tuna may lower the risk of cardiovascular diseases such as heart attacks. Tuna is a lean meat, and is a great source of protein, but is also low in calories. This means that it will help keep you full for longer, and therefore help control your diet.
