It’s All in the Cooking: Omega-3 Fatty Acids are Good for Your Heart When Cooked Properly – Diabetes Health | December 4, 2009

Lixin Meng, MS, a PhD candidate at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, designed a study to compare sources, types, amounts, and frequencies of omega-3 in diets, while taking into account gender and ethnic groups. One of the most surprising findings by the University of Hawaii researchers was that cooking fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids with low-sodium soy sauce or tofu increases the benefits.
