■ Pink salmon has a light color and mild flavor.

■ Red (Sockeye) salmon has a more intense color and flavor.

■ Traditional pack includes skin and bones.

■ Skinless and boneless packs are usually more expensive. Salmon bones are soft after canning. They add calcium when mashed and mixed in. Salmon skin also softens when canned and is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids. It can be mixed in with other ingredients for extra nutrition.
