Nutritional Values of Alaska Salmon Roe

Energy DHA* EPA* Calcium Vitamin D Lecithin Vitamin A Vitamin B1 Vitamin B2 Vitamin B12
Sujiko 249 kcal 2,17 g 1,90 g 100 mg 47,0 ug 150 ug 500 IU 0,50 mg 0,40 mg 53,9 ug
Ikura 249 kcal 2,17 g 1,90 g 100 mg 47,0 ug 150 ug 500 IU 0,50 mg 0,40 mg 47,3 ug
* DHA = Docosahexaenoic acid, EPA = Eicosapentaenoic acid

Sujiko and ikura contain high levels of unsaturated fatty acids such as docosahexaenoic acid and eicosapentaenoic acid; they are also rich in minerals and vitamins. DHA is normally found in fish oil and is not present in meat or plants. Its contribution to the body is only achieved with a fish diet. Salmon roe also contains high levels of calcium, another beneficial element for health.

 

Physiological Effects of EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid)
  • Prevents clot formation
  • Prevents hardening of the arteries
  • It is anti-inflammatory
  • Physiological effects of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid)
Contributes to the development of the retina and brain of children
  • Helps improve memory and learning ability
  • Repairs blood vessels
  • Prevents and reduces rheumatism
  • It intervenes in the assimilation of calcium; therefore, it contributes to avoid rickets, weakening of the bones, osteoporosis and osteomalacia
