Health Benefits

Taken from the cool, clean waters between Orkney and Scandinavia, Orkney Sweet Cured Herring provides us with both a delicious and nutritious food source.

Oil rich fish such as herring and salmon are high in long chain omega-3 polyunsaturates (or omega-3 fatty acids), which have been shown to help in maintaining a healthy heart. In fact, the current UK Government guidelines recommend that we should aim to eat two portions of fish a week with one portion being oily (high in omega-3 fatty acids).

Herring is also high in protein and essential vitamins and minerals. With no artificial colouring or flavouring, no skin or bones, Orkney Sweet Cured Herring is perfect for all the family.
