When it comes to healthy seafood options, salmon often emerges as the top choice, to nobody’s surprise. Salmon is nutrient-rich: it’s an excellent source of high-quality protein, and vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B12, potassium and selenium. Salmon’s most popular health pitch, though, is its high content of omega-3 fatty acids, which have anti-inflammatory properties, can help reduce blood triglycerides and regulate blood pressure.
Choosing the “right” salmon alone can be intimidating, particularly for those who are trying to be health-conscious, but don’t know much about food and nutrition. One question that boggles the minds of some shoppers is, wild salmon or farmed salmon?
Unambiguously, wild salmon is healthier than farmed for various reasons. However, the fact remains that, whether wild or farmed, salmon generally still provides up to a hundred-hold more omega-3 fatty acids content than any other foods.
The great news is, many of the salmon products available for purchase at grocery stores are, in fact, good for you. Even the canned salmon products fare well on the FoodFacts.com health score.
