Founded in 2001 by an Alaska fisherman, Vital Choice was launched on the premise that wild-caught Alaskan salmon is one of nature’s most remarkable foods. Wild salmon’s unusual diet and lifecycle account for its unique set of nutritional attributes, which include omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA), vitamin D3, B12, selenium, and astaxanthin. Wild salmon health benefits include supporting a child’s brain development during pregnancy and early childhood. In addition, eating fish as part of a healthy dietary pattern may have heart health benefits, may promote bone health, may decrease risk of obesity, and may decrease risk for certain cancers. When comparing the environmental impact of farm-raised vs wild-caught salmon, consumers may consider choosing wild salmon that’s certified sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) or recommended by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch® program.
