Question: What food sources are high in omega-3 fatty acids?
Answer: Fish and seafood are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. There are three types of omega-3 fatty acids, of which EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids are found almost exclusively in cold-water seafood such as salmon, trout, white tuna, sea bass, herring, oysters and sardines.
We find the third omega-3 fatty acid, known as ALA, in plant sources, including flaxseed, walnuts, sunflower seeds, canola oil and dark-green leafy vegetables. The current dietary guidelines recommend consuming fish and/or seafood at least two times a week.
