The Canadian Pacific Kazunoko (herring roe) Association organized a seminar in Nagoya last month sponsored by the Japan Dietetic Association and Healthy Nippon 21 Council. Two experts presented research suggesting that regular herring roe consumption may reduce blood cholesterol. They also stated that herring roe contained more protein than other fish eggs. The 200 dieticians and health care workers in attendance were treated to a "kazunoko box lunch" featuring herring roe and camembert cheese wrapped in ham. The seminar was also given in Fukuoka.
