Too bright color suggests that the salmon with dyes, and a dark red hue indicates a considerable age of the fish. But the pallor is proof that the product is made from frozen meat. Such a salmon will have a loose consistency.

And still be sure that in the product ready for use, there are no other ingredients, except salt and the salmon itself.
