How Does Clean Tilapia Compare to Bacon

Tilapia vs Bacon

Like most fish, tilapia is a great source of protein and it only has 90 calories and 2 grams of fat in one 4 oz. serving. It has a very mild taste, so you may add any seasoning and sauces to make your own favorite dish. Our tilapia comes from various countries and is farm raised using different methods depending on the region. These geographical and external factors mean tilapia nutritional content can also vary by origin.

"A 4 Ounce Fillet Has Just 90 Calories & 2 Grams of Fat."

It is well-known that fish can provide nutritional benefits to our health and well-being. But in the past few years, the nutritional value of tilapia has been questioned, and headlines circulated that tilapia is "worse than bacon," mostly due to a study made in 2008 that analyzed the Omega 6 content in tilapia, which was later sensationalized by various news sources and influential bloggers.

Omega 6 values aside (and there are less than half a gram in a 4 oz. serving of tilapia) there are several other factors that need to be considered when comparing the same amounts of tilapia and bacon, such as calories, fat, and sodium. With so many variables to consider, it's hard to strictly categorize one as worse than the other. The comparison paints a pretty clear picture of which one is healthier than the other.
