Superior Fresh, a USDA Certified Organic Aquaponic Greenhouse, announces that its Atlantic Salmon has received the Heart-Check Food Certification Mark from the American Heart Association.
This check mark helps take the guesswork out of reading nutrition facts and label information, giving consumers peace of mind that what they’re consuming meets the American Heart Association’s nutritional requirements. “The Heart-Check certification mark will be displayed prominently on our Superior Fresh Atlantic Salmon fillets, printed materials, boxes and website beginning in March 2022. Receiving Heart-Check certification is a huge honor,” said Brandon Gottsacker, president of Superior Fresh. .
Owner Karen Wanek is committed to changing the future of congenital heart defects (CHDs), affecting 1 in 100 births. Her mission is to improve and increase awareness of heart-healthy food options and continue to support research to cure coronary artery disease. Since 2010, the Wanek family has been dedicated to heart health. Superior Fresh is excited to offer its Heart-Check Certified Salmon to consumers in the Americas through various retailers and through its e-commerce site.
Gottsacker says, “The American Heart Association’s rigorous standards reflect the latest nutritional findings and scientific research validating the work we’ve done to raise healthy salmon. Our Superior salmon are raised on an organic, non-GMO diet. Typical Atlantic salmon contains 1.07g of EPA + DHA per 100g serving, while our premium fresh salmon fillets consistently test for more than 2 times that amount. EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are polyunsaturated fats that play a crucial role in the proper functioning of our body. Karen Wanek is unwavering in her support of the American Heart Association.
