Accredited Practising Dietitian (DAA, Australia) and Assistant External Affairs Officer of Hong Kong Dietitians Association, Miss Doris LAU said, "Gunkan sushi is prepared with avocado and shrimps. The former ingredient is relatively rich in monounsaturated fatty acid and high in potassium, while the latter is relatively low in fat. Hence, the sushi is categorised as a healthy "3 Less Dish"."
