【Differences between salmon and smoked salmon】
As we all know, salmon is a healthy food as it has relatively low calories while containing proteins that are crucial for the human body. Many of us may think smoked salmon is less nutritious than normal salmon. But the truth is during the smoking process, nutrients such as protein and fat can be retained inside the salmon, while the sodium content is what we should be aware of.
Since smoked salmon is high in sodium, it accounts for more than half of the sodium adult daily allowance (2000mg). Therefore, consuming smoked salmon could cause edema while long term consumption could cause high blood pressure. Furthermore, increased risk of cancer may develop if long term consumption of smoked salmon as nitrates and nitrites are likely to be used as preservatives.
