HEALTH TIP

The northern shrimp, commonly called Matane shrimp, is a product of our province! It is found, among other things, in the Gulf of St. Lawrence estuary. Its content of omega-3 fatty acids is considerable, up to five times higher than that found in Asian shrimp and it contains twice as much protein as the latter. Matane shrimp is an excellent source of selenium, phosphorus and vitamin B12.
