Rich in protein, Bakkafrost salmon makes the perfect match for active people that need a boost of protein to stay fit. Packed with lean, muscle-building protein in combination with high levels of healthy omega-3 fatty acids and minerals, salmon is a preferred element of professional athletes’ diet. Studies also show that eating foods with high levels of omega-3 possibly prevents inflammation that can occur with continual athletic activity[1], and contribute to maintaining limber joints.

Because salmon is very nutrient dense - you don’t need much of it. It is very filling, and even by eating small portions, you still get all the essential minerals and vitamins, making it an obvious choice for people, who wish to lose weight or just want to take good care of themselves.

By adding salmon to your weekly diet, you can promote health and development across your lifespan, while contributing to the promotion of a more sustainable food system.
