Salmon – part of a healthy diet

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) recommends that everybody should be eating oil-rich fish, such as salmon, more often to benefit from its long chain Omega 3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA.

The substantial library of evidence from multiple studies on nutrients present in seafood indicates that including salmon in your diet will improve your overall nutritional status, and may even yield significant health benefits. In light of the global obesity rates, governments and food and health advisory bodies in Europe and the United States are encouraging people to consume more fish.

A vital ingredient of a healthy diet, Scottish farmed salmon is a food which is rich in essential nutrients, including the very important omega-3 fatty acids, which help control inflammatory disease, reduce the risks of heart problems in many people, and which are the essential building blocks for nerve and brain tissue.

It also provides high quality protein and a wide variety of vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A, D and B12, phosphorus, selenium and iodine.
