What is Nordic Cod Protein ?

Nordic Cod Protein is a complete source of high quality protein, containing all the indispensable amino acids: Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan, Valine and Lysine. The human body is incapable of synthesizing indispensable amino acids and it is therefore crucial that we obtain them from our diet. Lacking these amino acids can limit protein synthesis and can with time lead to serious deficiencies.  Three of these are branched-chain amino acids (BCAA), Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine, which are metabolized directly in skeletal muscle rather than going through the liver.

Seagarden’s gentle production process also preserves important micronutrients such as calcium for bones and connective tissue, iodine which is important for growth and development and vitamin B12 which is crucial for energy, the production of red blood cells and DNA and for the normal function of nerves. Nutricoll Nordic Cod Protein has a high bio-availability which makes it very digestible with rapid absorption in the body. Some of the peptides made from protein are bio-active, meaning they have the potential to create positive effects in the body, such as anti-oxidant and anti-hypertensive properties. Cod is also a source of Taurine, an organic acid which has received attention due to its possible impact on weight reduction.


Nordic Cod Protein

Seagarden has developed a production line for Nutricoll Nordic Cod Protein to provide customers with an excellent alternative to quality protein supplement with a higher nutrition value. Cod Protein is exclusively produced from deep-sea wild-caught cod (Gadus Morhua), harvested from the crystal clear waters of the North Atlantic Ocean. The off cuts from cod fillet are steam-cooked, dried and micro-milled into fine powder. The process is very gentle and thus preserves all the important nutrients in fish.

Seagarden is the only supplier of pure, high quality, 100 % natural nordic cod protein available on the market. Nutricoll  Nordic Cod Protein stands out due to its unique and natural composition of protein and important micronutrients. Our fine Nordic Cod Protein powder is the ideal ingredient in a wide range of health and sports applications.

Nordic Cod Protein from Seagarden is available in bulk, sticks and tablets.

Why Nutricoll Nordic Cod Protein is unique?
The degradation of fish protein provides both amino acids and several unique bio-active peptides. Research has shown that the body might have a higher absorption of peptides than amino acids, meaning that an intake of protein from cod could be more favourable for nutritional benefits. Several studies have shown that an intake of peptides and amino acids together with calcium could increase the absorption of calcium and thus increase the daily calcium intake*.

A pre-clinical study from 2014** carried out at Haukeland University Hospital in Bergen, Norway showed definite health benefits from a diet containing Seagarden’s Cod Protein. The diets contained 20 energy % from protein where 25% of the protein was from cod and the rest from casein.
