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.

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.


**Drotningsvik, Aslaug, et al. “A low dietary intake of cod protein is sufficient to increase growth, improve serum and tissue fatty acid compositions, and lower serum postprandial glucose and fasting non-esterified fatty acid concentrations in obese Zucker fa/fa rats.” European journal of nutrition 54.7 (2015): 1151-1160.

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.

What is Seagarden Fish Complex

Seagarden Fish Complex is a natural and nutritious blend of white fish (cod, saithe and haddock).
Studies show that optimal health is achieved by eating fish every day. The Department of Health recommends eating a minimum of 300 – 450 g fish a week. However, although it is important to consume fish as a dinner component, it can be a challenge for some. Then it is good to know that 10 g of Seagarden Fish Complex equals 50 g of fresh fish.

Seagarden Fish Complex is a unique product full of active marine ingredients from wild-caught white fish. In addition to natural proteins (66 %), Fish Complex contains all 9 indispensable amino acids as well as collagen, vitamins, minerals (vitamin B12, calcium, phosphorous, iodine and selenium) and marine omega-3 fatty acids (EPA + DHA).

Calcium and phosphorous strengthen bones and teeth. Iodine, selenium and vitamin B12 boost the immunity system and energy levels.

Seagarden Fish Complex also contains minor traces of other important vitamins and minerals; vitamin A, vitamin B (B1 tiamin, B2 riboflavin, B3 niacin and B9 folic acid), vitamin D, vitamin E, zinc, magnesium, iron, kalium and manganese.

Rich in calcium! A good alternative for those with lactose intolerance or those who do not consume dairy products as well as a perfect source of what is required for personal well-being.
Source of collagen. Fish skin contains collagen, a vital structural protein which maintains the elasticity, flexibility and strength of bones, tendons, joints, skin, hair and nails.

Extracts are defined as water-soluble paste or powders

Seagarden Marine Extracts are all made from the liquid phase after the boiling process. The water soluble parts from the fish or shellfish are undergoing a separation step and the clean extract, containing water soluble peptides, nucleotides and pure amino acids, is then evaporated to a liquid (40 % DM) or further to a paste (70 % DM). Some liquids or pastes are further spray dried to a powder. Normal carrier added to the extracts are salt (NaCl) before processing.

Main characteristics of Seagarden Marine Extracts

• Particle size for spray dried extract powders <200 micron

• Instant soluble in water

• Salt normally used as carrier

• The extract powders are hygroscopic

• Natural declaration

• Typical shelf life for extract paste is 12 months at max. 20 degrees C (68 degrees F)

• Typical shelf life for extract powder is >24 months at max. 20 degrees C (68 degrees F)
