Vital Choice Wild Red™ sockeye is always firm and luscious, because we select fish of superior culinary quality.
The color and fat content of sockeye will vary by season and harvest location … a hallmark of truly wild, natural fish.
We tap our insider contacts – and decades of salmon-fishing savvy – to secure the best fish from every sockeye “vintage” for our Wild Red™ line.
Our Traditional Style Wild Red™, with skin and soft edible bones, offers extra flavor, calcium (12% Daily Value per serving) and omega-3s (804 mg per serving).
Sockeye salmon nutrition
In addition to ample protein, sockeye salmon offers very high levels of omega-3s, vitamin D in unmatched abundance, selenium (essential to key immune functions), and astaxanthin ... the potent carotenoid-class antioxidant that gives wild salmon their characteristic red-orange colors.
On average, sockeye salmon provides these amounts of nutrients per 3 oz serving (click the Nutrition tab on this page to see the omega-3 levels per official serving size for this product):
- Omega-3s – About 997mg of omega-3 EPA+DHA, or 2 to 4 times more than the minimum daily EPA+DHA intake recommended by most world health authorities (250-500mg)).
- Vitamin D3 – About 585 IU in the optimal D3 form, which is more than most other fish, and more than any fortified food, approaching the child-to-adult US RDA of 600 IU.
- Astaxanthin – About 3.39 mg. This red-orange pigment is a carotenoid-class nutrient with unique health benefits.
