What's Really In Your Frozen Fish?

I haven't bought wild caught frozen fish for a while, because I kept
having issues with it. On two separate occasions (from two different
stores) I bought fish that was supposed to be good according to the
best by dates, but they both smelled like ammonia.

I decided to try wild caught fish again, and it would've been nice to
find some caught in America, but no such luck. This fish was all the
way from China, so I told myself, "OK it's from least I'm
gonna be eating something healthy." When I got home, I noticed
that each piece of fish had 520 mg of sodium! That's a lot of salt.

This fish was full of sodium tripolyphosphate. According to, sodium tripolyphosphate is used as a
food additive, and as a component in some detergents, and 
suspected of contributing to water pollution. 

On, they say sodium tripolyphosphate is
GRAS (generally recognized as safe). This substance is
generally recognized as safe when used in accordance with
good manufacturing practice.

It's a shame you have to read the entire food package to 
find out if the healthy food you bought really is healthy.
