Did you know…

Due to lack of krill, farm-raised Salmon are actually grey. Artificial dye is put into their feed, to give them their salmon coloring.

Stick to purchasing wild Salmon, who eat krill to get their natural color.


A quick food fact for you from:


About Tamara Hoerner (1303 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes β€œGood, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

  1. Oh my, that is so alarming. I knew farm raised salmon was bad for you, but I didn’t know why. Yikes. Artificial anything isn’t a good sign. Thanks for the heads up.
