Gardein Golden Fishless Filets or Mini Crispy Crabless Cakes could pass for real seafood…but they’ve got less omega-3 fat than you’d get in fish. “Contains 32 mg of ALA, EPA and DHA Omega-3 fatty acids per serving,” say the Crabless Cakes. Translation: 3 mini cakes contain the omega-3 fats you’d get in just 2-or-so tablespoons of crabmeat. And in the crabmeat, it would mostly be EPA and DHA. Crabless Cakes have both (from algal oil), but also add ALA (from canola and chia oils), which is less likely to protect your heart.
