Algal-Oil Capsules and Cooked Salmon: Nutritionally Equivalent Sources of
Docosahexaenoic Acid 4

Continuing on about algae & nutrition.  This is from their abstract:


Food and nutrition professionals question whether supplement-sourced nutrients appear to be equivalent to those derived from natural food sources. [...] These results indicate that algal-oil DHA capsules and cooked salmon appear to be bioequivalent in providing DHA to plasma and red blood cells and, accordingly, that algal-oil DHA capsules represent a safe and convenient source of non?fish-derived DHA.

    I would any day prefer a well done Salmon than a few capsules :-)

    I got so excited for pond scum cap possibilities that I forgot all about salmon. By "well done" you mean freeze dried pellets?
