“Is canned salmon as nutritious as salmon fillets?” Auburn
Yes, it is. We called a registered dietitian... She says the only major difference is that canned salmon has more sodium. For example, a quarter-cup of canned salmon has about 270-milligrams of sodium, versus only 28-milligrams sodium in raw salmon. Either way, you'll still be gaining from the heart-helping omega-3 fats. But if you have high blood pressure, or are watching your salt intake, salmon fillets are the better choice.
