SO IS EATING TUNA POKE OK? Yes, it is fairly safe as long as you are eating at reputable, busy restaurants and you are healthy. No, the mercury in tuna isn’t going to kill you, but it’s a good idea to eat a variety of fish in any case. Well, in theory, it may have some issues. This article explains why eating Tuna may cause health issues.

Poke is a traditional dish from Hawaii, which is made from diced raw fish, most commonly yellowfin or “ahi” tuna, or (octopus). “It would likely be safe for many men to eat tuna every day, while some men could experience symptoms of mercury toxicity from eating the same amount,” says Food and Drug Administration spokeswoman. Poke bowls appeal to the new breed of paleo and health conscious diners looking for a delicious lunch or a quick bite for dinner, and the ahi tuna in poke bowls offers a hearty dose of protei.

Do not regularly eat tuna. There are two main types of canned tuna: White albacore and chunk light. Chunk light is made mostly from skipjack tuna, a smaller species of tuna. Albacore tuna is a.

Salmon or tuna sashimi. Sashimi is a great source of lean protein and heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. In terms of raw versus cooked fish, this really comes down to personal preference.

From a nutritional point of view, they are going to be very similar. We love the texture and taste of raw sashimi in our poke bowls, so we usually opt for this. The American Heart Association recommends eating omega-3-rich fish, such as tuna, twice a week for good health. It’s wise, however, to include variety in your tuna diet. Because tuna is a source of mercury, you should avoid eating tuna everyday, especially higher-mercury varieties like.

Generally speaking, poke would refer to raw pieces of tuna cut into cubes, then marinated with soy sauce and sesame oil and mixed with onion; though the. You can not cook mercury out, so that is why it is recommended to not eat the fish that are higher on the food chain, like Tuna (ahi). & yes, there is a chance that there will be parasites in the raw fish, that a regular adult can take medication to get rid of the parasite, but as a pregnant mom, the medicine is too strong and will harm the baby.

If the pokē is properly refrigerated (that means stored at a temperature of 41 degrees F or lower), it will be safe to eat for a limited time. Leftover pokē bowls are problematic. Ideally, you should just make/take/buy enough so that it can be consumed in one sitting.

My suggestion is to avoid eating tuna more than once a month— especially fresh tuna steaks—in addition to other fish particularly high in mercury such as pike, swordfish, shark, and walleye.

  • I actually liked this channel… until this one video. Makes me disappointed for the fact that you’re indirectly discouraging people to enjoy this delicacy. Isnt that what White Blood cells are for?

  • I’m never eating raw seafood anymore my cousin like raw salmon but idk what do do with my cousin when I see a raw seafood ima be like COOK THAT FOOD OR IM NOT GONNA F*** EAT IT

  • many japanese eats raw fish, there are only very few fish parasites that can harm you and im pretty sure that there are more people suffering from food poisoning in US than japanese infected with fish parasites

  • I have never lived in Japan for long, but as a former resident who went saltwater fishing almost every day in Florida, I can answer with my common sense and some research paper knowledge that, they just don’t.

    If you go search in Japanese news you will see people getting infected all the time. Japanese people are not immune to fish parasites even though consuming sashimi is fairly common in their culture. Some people may argue Japanese use soy sauce/ ginger/wasabi or whatever complementary food to kill the parasite, but I highly doubt its effectiveness.

    From my experience dealing with fish, most wild fish are infected with parasites, no matter freshwater or saltwater. There are tiny black dots in lake bass and there are wiggly red worms in ocean bluefish. You can’t really avoid them, but you can learn to manage.

    The practical way of controlling parasite is by timely gutting, pinching worms out (candling), freezing and thoroughly cooking. We remove parasites as much as we can and kill off what’s left from freezing or cooking.

    Back to the question of how do Japanese people (all people) avoid fish parasites from raw food? Eat farm bred fish which are less likely to be infected, clean it well before consumption, and flash freeze to kill parasites to be safe.

  • How can someone be so disgusting to find worm-infested fish delicious? All fish have worms, no matter if the worms were live or dead when the fish was bought! YUCK! DISGUSTING!

  • People have made the same type of argument about sleeping sickness and tsetse eradication in Africa since wild animals tend to be reservoirs for trypanosomes that kill people and cattle. Africa’s megafauna might not still exist if it weren’t for the tsetse flies, who knows.

  • Yes, and i don’t give a frick, if im going to die it better be from my own decision of eating sushi, rather than not eating sushi living with fear at all and getting infected from corona from a dude who was enjoying himself eating bat soup… All that just to die knowing that fact and that taking care of my self by not eating sushi didn’t matter at the end.

  • In India every dish is first washed, then boiled and then deep fried in oil and then cooked in spices and curry
    So no worries for me…….

  • I’m Japanese and for anyone who thinks japan is a healthy nation it’s not. Stomach cancer is the number one cause of deaths. Sushi or sashimi has to be consumed with wasabi (not the ones sold in tubes but real raw wasabi root) Shiso and gari (ginger pickled in vinegar not the packaged ones loaded with sugar and chemicals) these ingredients kill parasites. Unless your eating at a super fancy authentic sushi restaurant they won’t serve you those ingredients. Raw fish is extremely dangerous I found a couple in my stool the other day and haven’t touched it since!! Parasites can cause all sorts of health problems and when they over populate they cause cancer, they can affect your mood and even lower IQ. A lot of doctors claim that most of our health issues are actually caused by parasites. Big pharma try to shut these doctors down because they don’t want to loose customers. We consume so much carbs dairy and sugar (parasites favorite foods) no wonder we are all sick. Sushi is one of my favorite foods and I live next to the freakin ocean but I’m gonna stay away from it!

  • I clicked on this video just to say “YES I WILL! AND NOTHING WILL STOP ME! EVEN IF I WOULD WATCH THIS VIDEO! EVEN IF I GET TAPEWOR.. okay this is getting out of hands… maybe not on that tapeworm part gag oof.”

  • Why you didn’t mention about Hindi mythology while telling about parasites because in Hindu mythology also there is lot about them and written much before any other book has written.

  • We don’t really need to eat fish for a healthy diet and the oceans and all animals that depend on seafood could sure use a break from over exploitation. I followed Silva Earl’s lead and gave up seafood years ago. Give the ocean a break!

  • I thought as a japanese chef, you would’ve paid more attention to hygiene.
    you put the first box on the cutting board, who knows where the box have been (likely on the floor somewhere that people walked on possibly stepping on some dog shit), and then you cut the raw tuna on the same board. Disgusting!! Hope you didn’t catch any germs

  • So I saw your other video about salmon sashimi and I made some at home, and it was amazing! I got my salmon from costco and it was just fantastic. (Unlike in my previous comment, I did not cure it in salt).

    For Tuna sashimi… Any advice I should be aware of? I believe that all tuna is generally frozen when it is caught, so parasites aren’t as much of an issue.

  • Watching this imagined myself cooking Tuna Adobo, Tuna sinigang, Sashimi, Grilled endless Tuna Pasta. I eat Tuna almost everyday because I only eat seafood and steak������ I love it when Chef Hiro does Hmmm hmmm������

  • I’ve been wanting to use that same fish they got at Walmart but everything I read about it said not to eat it raw? Is it safe to eat it raw? Are there any raw fish at Walmart that you can make sashimi with?

  • Always great into the last cuts…. You should I just use them for steaks on the grill goes too much strings takes too long with spoon

  • Use canned salmon in water….less mercury. A thousand times better than tuna. Dump the tuna/salmon meat in a bowl of water to wash it. Stir it. Drain with fine-mesh strainer. With your hand, grab the meat and squeeze it dry. Add some lemon juice and voilà! The fishy metallic flavor disappears!

  • Hiro Walmart Greeter: Good Afternoon. Walmart Manager: Excuse Me Sir But you don’t work here. Hiro: Good Afternoon.

  • ok everyone, let’s play a game. I’m going to pick a single random object from somewhere in the video. The first person who guesses the object and provides the exact time stamp wins. Good luck everyone:)

  • As someone from Miami, I’ve wanted to make sushi at home but there is no fresh fish, but this dude showed me and I rlly wanna go now, keep it up hiro!

  • Tuna is always my top 5 favorite fish to eat raw, from lean to Otoro, which of them are unique and difference in taste. Not sure Walmart up here in Canada have the same quality of tuna as in US, but I definitely have a closer look next time. Thank you

    The best experience I had about having Tuna sashimi was back in Hong Kong when one of the Sushi chain brand invited a famous sushi chef from Japan to perform real time cut and make tuna sushi and dishes. To my surprise, I prefer the Chu Toro from its Kama, it has the best from taste of the meat and the fatty smooth. It was sooooo good

  • Going tuna fishing today.. hoping to bring back some for sushi & sashimi. Is there anything you need to do to the tuna like you would with Salmon?

  • Internet chefs are offering their wisdom and caution to a grandmaster sushi chef on what they learned from watching other YouTube channels

  • Imagine crying over the fact that the camera man was telling them what fish they were trying. Couldn’t be me but to the butt hurt fans you need to take the stick out of your poop hole

  • If he didn’t keep on repeating what we already knew while the guy was tasting and let him do his thing rather than imply that certain cuts were bad it would’ve been better. The guy clearly thought the Walmart fish was good, but cameraman would refuse to acknowledge that.
