Nutrition Info

Salmon

Salmon (and its peer, sea trout) is very high in Vitamin B12, which is important for red blood cell production. A deficiency in B12 can result in a form of anaemia. B12 also helps to regulate production of a hormone called Homocysteine, an excess of which can lead to heart and blood vessel disease and stroke. Salmon is also a good source of Vitamin D, whose functions include bone health, blood sugar control and immunity. Many people are Vitamin D deficient – our bodies largely get it from sunlight with food being a secondary source.

Always buy good salmon, responsibly produced and organic. Salmon farming is riddled with issues, not just for the fish themselves, and us as consumers, but for the environment.
