Sugar in smoked Salmon?

Answered on May 07, 2014

I have seen lots of paleo recipes using smoked salmon, but going to my local supermarket the smoked salmon states it has sugar in it? I'm sure this is part of the curing process, but would this change your decision on whether to buy it or not?

With a busy life as a keen runner, husband a with a toddler I don't have much time for smoking my own fish, but sounds like fun thhq!

Because smoke tastes so darned good.

I'd take the O3 and protein.

And forget about the sugar altogether.

Is anything stopping you from smoking your own? I can't even taste real, peppery, smoke flavor on commercial smoked salmon.

It's really needed more as an industrial food processing ingredient. Traditional cure would be brining and/or straight smoke drying. But that doesn't sell.

In the end I bought it, but just wondered what the people on here would think. I went down my local Lidl shop later in the week and found smoked salmon without sugar so now I know where to go. It makes a good, cheap (sometimes) paleo lunch on the go.

Sugar balances out the salt taste wise. Why not just use some canned wild caught salmon and call it good.

How much carbohydrate/sugar does the label indicate per serving? 0 grams? 1 gram? Reality check, folks… that amount of sugar is fine, heck you can eat 100s of grams of carbohydrate per day and be completely healthy. Sugar is not the enemy.

I personally would take in sugar to get omega 3 as long as it wasn't a huge quantity.

It's needed for longevity of the fish, it's part of the cure. I wouldn't worry too much about it, I'd worry more that the fish is wild instead of farmed.
