As we all become more conscious of the foods we eat and where they are sourced, it’s an ideal time to invest in high-quality, sustainable food – which is what makes Alaska seafood an excellent choice.
Alaska’s 34,000-mile coastline is home to wild, natural and sustainable seafood such as salmon, pollock, yellowfin sole and black cod which swim free in the icy Pacific Ocean. The freedom to swim wild and the fish’s natural diet creates a superior meatier taste and texture.
Wild Alaska seafood has no artificial colouring, preservatives, pesticides, or GMOs as the fish live in some of the cleanest waters in the world and is a key source of marine omega-3 fatty acids (DHA and EPA) – which are essential for our bodies to promote heart health, suppress inflammatory responses, improve blood flow, and participate in brain function.
Wild Alaska seafood provides important minerals like zinc, iron, selenium, and calcium, which help to fight common colds, protect our DNA from damage and maintain strong bones. While vitamins A, C, D, and E, are essential in balancing cholesterol, maintaining, and protecting cells, regulating mood swings and is crucial for good vision.
Alaska seafood can be found frozen, fresh, smoked, canned and even in pure oil capsules making it the ideal ingredient for a high protein and nutrient-rich diet. While fresh fish is great to consume throughout your week, consider canned Alaska salmon when looking for an easy and quick way to add lean high-quality protein to your meal. Canned Alaska Salmon is full of flavour and filling thanks to high protein levels: 100g of drained canned Sockeye has 167 calories, and 24g of protein, while 100g of drained Alaska Pink has 138 calories with 23gs of protein.
You can easily find Wild Alaska seafood in all major supermarkets nationwide including Waitrose, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, ASDA and Morrisons.
