Needed to build and maintain every cell in the body, proteins consist of various amino acids. Those that the body cannot produce itself and must be added through diet, are called essential amino acids.
Omega 3 - fatty acid
Omega 3 prevents and slows the development of cardiovascular diseases. These marine fatty acids are also key building blocks of the brain.
Fatty fish appears to have a preventive effect on diapetes type 2 and MS - auto-immune illnesses where the body's immune defence system attacks the body's cells instead of protecting them. It also appears to have a preventive effect on certain types of cancer, such as breast cancer, colon cancer and rectal cancer. 100g of Fjord Trout provides 80-100% of your daily intake of Vitamin D.

Frequently asked questions
Who in Norway monitors the content of undesirable substances in salmon and trout?
The Norwegian Food Safety Authority and FIDES (the National Institute of Nutrition and Seafood Research) take samples and analyse them. The fish farming industry in Norway is subject to strict regulation.
Does farmed salmon contain more heavy metals than wild salmon?
No. Farmed salmon today contains less toxic pollutants than wild salmon. That is because farmed salmon are feeded by a documented and controlled feed. Undesirable substances as PCBs, dioxins and heavy metals in salmon fillets have been monitored for more than a decade. The content is far below proscribed limits.
Does farmed salmon contain hazardous pharmaceutical residues?
No. No residues from illegal drugs or legally used pharmaceuticals above set limits have ever been found. The Norwegian authorities perform thousands of tests every year.
Has ocean-farmed salmon been dyed?
No. The pinkish-red colour of wild and ocean-farmed salmon comes from a carotenoid called astaxanthin. Ocean-farmed salmon receives this through diet supplements – the same way we take vitamins.
Is it safe for pregnant consumers to eat salmon?
Yes. In fact, the Directorate of Health recommends that pregnant women and breastfeeding women eat more seafood. Mother's intake of fatty fish such as farmed salmon, contributes to the development of the nerve system in fetuses and infants who are breastfed.
The advice with raw fish is to ensure that the cooling chain has been unbroken during transportation, and that you freeze the fish before you prepare it to kill any parasites.
Could you get the same health benefits from capsules or pills?
Several of the health benefits of seafood occur when different substances work together. A combination of marine omega-3 fatty acids and the amino acid taurine is more effective at reducing cholesterol than taking marine omega-3 fatty acids alone.
