FAO Nigepoo- Wild red Vs pink salmon

I bought a tin of wild pink salmon the other day thinking it was the red salmon you were on about (as in French it just said wild salmon from the Pacific) and it had about 6g of mono and polyunsaturated fats in it so thought it was the one but I found wild red salmon now (more expensive)... now which is best to have?

    well I currently have the wild red from Aldi. Its £1.19 a tin of 213g. Its the one Nige recommended previously.

    I asked my friend in the states about this pink and red issue. Red costs more owing to availability she replied. Someone also mentioned in another thread there was a tad less Omega 3 per 100g. Something like 0.4g or so, can't recall.

    Tescos do the pink at 80p a tin of 418g I think.

    Red salmon has more in the way of the carotanoid astaxanthin. In the body it can function as an antioxidant (and a pretty strong one at that) so there may be some health benefits there.

    Either way they are both oily fish and I would advise you not to sweat about the relatively small differences (compared to you whole intake) of oils in the flesh.

    Yep you're right... just that Nige always talked about the red one so I wanted to hear opinions about the pink one

    What size tin was it and how much omega-3 was there per 100g? I prefer the Aldi wild red Alaskan salmon as it's tasty and a 213g tin contains ~6g of omega-3 (3 days supply). It is more expensive than pink salmon, though.

    I think it's 180gr net weight, the O3 are the mono and polyunsat fats isn't it?
    if so it's 6g

    if so it's 6g It's not.
