ABOUT GAPP

Naturally Good
Genuine Alaska Pollock® lives a wild existence and eats a natural diet. In other words, it is a completely natural product. It’s also a healthy one: Genuine Alaska Pollock is high in protein, low in fat, carbohydrates and cholesterol, and an excellent source of protein and minerals. And it is a great addition to a healthy diet, providing 393 milligrams of omega-3 fatty acids per four-ounce serving.

Safe and Wholesome
The State of Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation regularly tests Alaska seafood for the presence of environmental toxins, such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and heavy metals, such as mercury. In all tests, Alaska pollock received a clean bill of health, with extremely low amounts of contaminants – well below the levels of concern set by the U.S. Food and Drug
