  • how do you know if the salmon is dyed?

    I just thawed a bit of salmon and i've noticed there are darker red globules in the package that look like dyed fat or juice. i'm wondering if it's possible to figure out whether that's just normal for salmon, or if this might be dye.

    From the packaging in my area (NJ), farm raised is always dyed. Wild caught is not, or at least they don't label it as dyed. All of the farmed stuff here says "color added".

          eww. so there's no way to tell. i recently read an article that said companies have been caught labeling farm-raised salmon as wild caught. according to the article, there are no regulations about calling something wild or farmed (though i believe we do have country-of-origin regulations).

            Atlantic salmon is almost always farmed, pacific is much more likely to be wild (especially if it has a region-specific label on it, like Alaska salmon which does have some legal protections)
