THESushi is one of the exotic foods most loved by Italians. The June 18 is celebrated on Sushi Day, one more opportunity to choose between sashimi, rolls, onigiri, uramaki and much more. What is certain, however, is that everything must be eaten strictly using chopsticks. Which may take some practice. Another small rule to respect is to flavor it with soy sauce, perhaps with the addition of the spicy note of wasabi. Not only is it really tasty, studies have shown it is also a key to longevity.

Sushi: for many but not for everyone
«Sushi is in fashion, but it’s not for everyone: better avoid offering it to those with weak immune systems, such as small children, patients with particular diseases or the elderly, who are therefore more susceptible to infections. Regarding i childrenfurthermore, it must be emphasized that fish is one of the allergenic foods. Therefore, many pediatricians recommend adding it to infant nutrition only at the end of a course of introduction of all other solid foods (cereals, meat, eggs, legumes, fruit, vegetables). Also, remember that too for pregnant women the consumption of raw fish is not recommended. In any case, sushi will also be excellent using cooked fish », continues Campoli.
