MOWI has come out fighting against industry detractors with a news statement describing salmon as a nutritional powerhouse.

The company says on its website : “We are all aware of the numerous health advantages linked with salmon consumption, but how beneficial is it for you?

“Nutrient-dense foods such as salmon play an important role in meeting our individual dietary requirements without excess energy intake. The nutrients in salmon support optimal health and help to reduce the risk of a range of diseases and disorders.

“The Blue Foods Assessment also discovered that foods from the ocean, such as salmon, offer far greater nutritional benefits than other land-based animal foods. “

Mowi said it was proud to be able to offer a high-quality product that has a taste and health profile that few other products can match.

“ Our salmon is an excellent source of protein, vitamins, and minerals, which are important nutrients for people of all ages. However, it is the Omega-3 fatty acids that receive the most attention, and rightly so.

“Consumption of these essential Omega-3 fatty acids is proven to help maintain a healthy heart, reduce inflammation, support brain function and development, and lower blood pressure.

In addition to being an excellent source of Omega-3, here are some of the many benefits that make our salmon a nutritional powerhouse.

Mowi has also listed the various vitamins and proteins contained in salmon that are known for playing a part in improving human health

It adds: “Mowi salmon is not just an incredible superfood, but it is also extremely versatile. It is now easier than ever to prepare a well-rounded and appetising meal by pairing it with plant-based foods such as vegetables, fruit, legumes, whole grains, and nuts.

“ Health authorities and nutritionists from around the world recommend that you include at least one portion of oily fish, such as salmon, into your diet every week. By doing this, your body and mind will reap the benefits!”
