Seal: Too Cute to Eat?

Terroir Symposium 2017

In celebration of our beloved Canada turning 150 years young, one of the premier culinary events of the season is set to honour the great products this country produces.

Terroir 2017 will take place on Monday, May 29th at the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto with the theme: Our Home and Native Land: Celebrating Canadian Gastronomy.”

SeaDNA Canada is proud to announce that for the first time in the event’s history, seal products will have a central place in the proceedings.



Seal: Too Cute to Eat?

On Monday afternoon, a symposium entitled: “Seal: Too Cute to Eat?” will be led by executive chef and President of Edible Canada, Eric Pateman. Eric will be joined by fellow chef Todd Perrin (Chef/Owner of Mallard Cottage, St John’s) along with industry leaders Aaju Peter (Inuit Activist and Lawyer. Her story was featured in the award winning documentary “Angry Inuk”), David Serkoak (Ahiarmiut Relocation Spokesperson, Teacher, Drum Dancer & Hunter, Ottawa & Arviat, Nunavut) and Dion Dakins (CEO of Carino Processing, St John’s).

Representing local hunters and producers from the Far North to the East Coast, this discussion will highlight the health benefits of seal meat and focus on the evolution of the industry in Canada.

Seal Loin

Seal Loin Tataki: Prepared in a proper manner it has been compared to the dining experience of a fine beef filet mignon. Seal loin should be prepared the same way as tuna or game meat and should be served very rare, even in tataki or sashimi. Click here for our Seal Loin Tataki Recipe and for the Recipe Video!

Delicious and Healthy Protein

To ensure that consumers are treated to a product of the best possible quality, seal harvesting best practices have been heavily refined over the years and are now strictly followed. The result is a delicious, sustainable, and truly Canadian protein with unique characteristics.

Seal meat is low in fat, high in protein and is a remarkable source of iron. One 100g serving of seal loin will provide 250% of the daily recommended intake of iron, one of the most common deficiencies in humans today. The protein content is also strong, coming in at around 23%. Seal is also an excellent source of Magnesium, Zinc and vitamin B12. Click here to learn more.

It should also be pointed out that seal meat has been tested for mercury and other heavy metals, with levels coming in well below the acceptable industry limits. It is a sustainable, healthy and safe protein for all consumers.

SeaDNA Canada welcomes all to join us at Terroir 2017 for a true taste of Canada and a healthy and honest discussion on an industry that means so much to so many in Coastal and remote communities across Canada.

The Straight Seal Facts

We at SeaDNA get all kinds of questions about the seal industry. It remains, even today, one of the most needlessly controversial food industries on earth.

The simple fact is: the seal hunt is no different than any other wild game harvest. The Canadian government sets an annual quota, monitors and regulates the hunt, and ensures that any part of the animal used for human consumption is tested and safe. No company can operate outside of these parameters.

SeaDNA takes pride in ensuring best practices throughout our production chain; from our local hunters making the catch, to our meat and oil facilities bringing finished products into your home.

The Canadian seal industry has evolved. And now the discussion surrounding it is as well as truth replaces propaganda and stigma.

-> Listed below are facts about the industry. <-


  • The current estimated Harp Seal population in the Northwest Atlantic: 7.4 million and growing.
  • The current estimated Grey Seal population in the Northwest Atlantic: 505, 000 and growing.  
  • The Canadian seal herd is at its largest point in 30 years and is a SPECIES OF LEAST CONCERN by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
  • Annual Canadian quota: Harp seals: 400,000 / Grey seal: 60,000.
  • Actual Canadian catch:  35,000 harp seals and 1,145 grey seal in 2015 / 66,800 harp seals and 1,612 grey seal in 2016.

Last year, less than 15% of the seal quota was harvested.


  • The Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) strictly monitors the annual harvest quota for Canadian seal herds.
  • DFO Enforcement tools include: aerial surveillance, satellite tracking of vessels, at-sea patrols and inspections, dock inspections.
  • It has been ILLEGAL for seal pups to be harvested in Canada since 1987. All seals harvested in Canada must be self reliant.
  • The responsible harvest of the growing seal herd is recognized as being important in maintaining eco-diversity. It’s estimated that each adult seal will eat 1.5 – 2.0 tonnes of fish and seafood in a single year.

It’s estimated that each adult seal will eat 1.5 – 2.0 tonnes of fish and seafood in a single year.


  • All processing and refining facilities used by SeaDNA are certified by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), Health Canada or The Quebec Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAPAQ).
  • All lots of SeaDNA oil are tested by an external laboratory for purity.
  • Meat and oil is well below the most stringent industry requirements for heavy metals like mercury, lead, cadmium and arsenic and the World Health Organization’s limits for PCBs, dioxins and furans.

SeaDNA Seal Oil: The Omega-3 choice for all mothers

Moms and Omega-3 Supplements

The greatest gift a mother can ever give is the gift of life. A healthy start to that life begins with proper nutrition. There is no questioning that what an expecting or breastfeeding mother puts in her body can impact the baby either positively or negatively.

Omega-3 diet supplementation has long been recommended by health professionals for mothers and SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil provides a new, natural alternative with unique benefits.

Scientific studies have proven that a mother taking Omega-3 supplements can see:

  1. a significant increase in DHA levels in breast milk
  2. completed Omega-3 deficiencies required for the proper development of the fetus
  3. a stimulated immune system
  4. reduced risk of postpartum depression
  5. positive impacts on pregnancy diabetes

Why is Seal Oil Different?


Many fish oils on the market contain artificially increased levels of DHA. Concentrated using ethanol, these chemically altered supplements provide high DHA levels but sacrifice purity to do so.  SeaDNA Seal Oil provides a natural and pure source of DHA and EPA along with DPA: a unique compound found in only a few places on earth including a mother’s breast milk.

Contains DPA

Scientific studies have shown that DPA can act as a catalyst for the body to both integrate and boost levels of DHA along with DPA and EPA.

Quickly dissolved by the body

Scientific studies have also proven that the mammalian molecular structure of seal oil is more easily accepted by the human body than the foreign fish oil molecular structure. This means no “fishy burps” and a supplement that is effective in its natural state.

The pure, unique and balanced Omega-3 chain of SeaDNA Seal Oil featuring DPA, DHA and EPA sets it apart from other Omega-3 supplements on the market.

Is SeaDNA Seal Oil For Me?

Omega-3 supplementation can play an important role in the development of the brain, eyes and nerves of the fetus during pregnancy and boost overall health of the child during the formative and critical first years of their life.

It can also help a mother in dealing with some of the most common mental side-effects of child birth such as depression and mood swings.

SeaDNA Seal Oil, in contrast to fish oil, also offers a healthy, natural cholesterol balance. Seal Oil is rich in “good cholesterol” and should not impact “bad cholesterol” levels.

SeaDNA Seal Oil: A Natural, Pure Omega-3 Alternative

This video may surprise or even shock you: two of the most popular Omega-3 fish oil brands on the market dissolving and eating Styrofoam cups.

Triglycerides VS. Ethyl Esters

The goal of any consumer taking an Omega-3 supplement is simple: to improve their overall health. Numerous scientific studies have outlined the benefits that come with adding an Omega-3 supplement to a diet. But not all Omega-3 supplements are created equal.

For many, the choice remains highly concentrated fish oils that promise artificially increased levels of EPA and DHA. This is achieved by modifying the natural oils at their molecular level.  The process involves Ethanol which, when combined with the natural oil, results in a brand new molecular structure called an Ethyl Ester. Although higher levels of EPA and DHA are now possible through this process, the resulting product is far removed from its “natural” beginnings.  

A concentrated fish oil may list high levels of EPA and DHA on their label. However, scientific studies have proven that the body has a difficult time utilizing oils left in the Ethyl Ester form. A common side effect is the often reported “fishy burps.” Even in its natural form, fish oil’s molecular structure remains somewhat foreign to the human body.

Concentrated fish oils in their Ethyl Ester form will melt Styrofoam cups, are harder for the body to absorb and are chemically altered.

Why Seal Oil?

There is though, a natural option out there the human body can accept readily and easily and is proven to outperform concentrated fish oils: SeaDNA Canadian Seal Oil. Research shows that seal oil’s natural triglyceride (TG) form provides better absorption and assimilation.

Since a seal is a mammal and a human is a mammal, the body quickly breaks down SeaDNA Seal Oil to utilize its benefits. The figure below shows the average time of disintegration of SeaDNA capsules (38 seconds) versus fish oil in Ethyl Ester form (1.19 minutes).*

* Results from Disintegration and Dissolution USP <2040> tests performed by third party laboratory, 2017.

DPA intensifies the benefits of traditional Omega-3’s (DHA and EPA)

Unchanged at its molecular structure and purified to world-class standards, SeaDNA Seal Oil not only provides Omega-3 supplementation of EPA and DHA in a mammalian cell structure the human body recognizes, it offers a third Omega-3 with a world of benefits: DPA.

DPA is only found in a few places on earth. One of those is a mother’s breast milk. Nature seemed to know this Omega-3 has a crucial role in building strong health.  DPA alone has been found to be 10 times more effective than EPA at repairing damaged vessels. Studies have also shown it is much more effective at reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease. DPA has also been shown to help boost both EPA and DHA levels in the body as well.

Seal Oil is the only Omega-3 supplement on the market that can offer naturally occurring and balanced levels of DPA, DHA and EPA.

The best way to prevent an early spring cold

Spring is nature’s way of saying, ‘Let’s party!’

But despite the arrival of spring,

the flu season is in full swing.

You wake up in the morning as if you had not slept. You feel tired and confused. You have a headache. Your muscles are sore. 
You have the symptoms of the spring fever!

Some say that spring fever is a normal phenomenon.

In Canada, this health problem encompasses several symptoms and strikes every year from the end of March to mid-April.

Warning! Warning!

Never ignore what your body is telling you!

But why in the spring?

The “Wood” organs, those whose energy is particularly active in the spring, are the liver and the gallbladder.

The liver is responsible for the body’s defense mechanism

and it has a direct impact on the entire digestive system.


Many people feel sleepy after a meal …

Perhaps this is a warning your body is giving you?

Could you have diabetes and not know it?


>>>> So that’s the reason that would explain my drowsiness ?!

A link has been established between the consumption of simple carbonhydrate foods and an increase risk of diabetes, obesity and heart disease.

Young Man Wanting to Hit the Alarm Clock


>>>> Seniors, are even more susceptible to cardiovascular disease and diabetes!

Image result for elderly

The liver performs many essential functions related to digestion, metabolism, immunity, and the storage of nutrients within the body.

Of course you need to take good care of it!

>>>> Especially for the elderly who are more susceptible to cardiovascular disease!

But how should I take care of team?

>>> Discover the benefits of a daily dose of SeaDNA Omega-3 made of 100% pure seal oil.

Our seal oil is harvested in the pristine and icy waters surrounding the Magdalen Islands and the coasts of Newfoundland.

SeaDNA Omega-3 encapsulates all the benefits of the Atlantic Ocean, creating an innovative, unique, natural and 100% Canadian product.

Seal oil has very specific nutritional properties, but is not very well-known among Canadians.

Seals represent renewable and abundant marine resources and their harvest is an essential element of good management of the marine ecosystem.

Seal Oil :

>>> Increases cardio protection

>>> Reduces inflammation

>>> Regulates / stabilizes mood

>>> Lowers triglyceride levels

>>> Increases the good cholesterol (HDL)

SeaDNA Omega-3 a day keeps the doctor away

▷ Since a seal is a mammal, the human body can digest and utilize seal Omega-3 much easier than those from fish. This allows an optimal digestion and absorption for better results!

In the spring, when green shoots emerge from the previously frozen ground and buds return to the trees, it’s time to consider your liver.

Omega-3 to Prevent Colds and Flus

Fever, headache, cough, pharyngitis, sore throat, muscle aches, tiredness… During this cold period, viruses like flu and colds proliferate and our body is less resistant to external attacks, which inevitably results in an epidemic peak.

Source of Omega-3

Fish is one of the top 10 foods to eat when you have a good man cold because it can help to increase the level of Omega-3 in your body. Some fish such as salmon, tuna and seafood are better than others because of their high levels of Omega-3.

However, for those who do not like fish, the ideal is to take Omega-3 capsules. A daily intake of omega-3 fatty acids improves our immune defense and prevents infections by producing antibodies.

It is therefore recommended to boost your immune system with Omega-3 in order to be well protected during this high risk period.

Top 10 Foods for Preventing Cold and Flu

  1. Homemade bone broth
  2. Garlic and onions
  3. Citrus fruits
  4. Ginger
  5. Fermented foods
  6. Cold-water fish
  7. Sweet potatoes
  8. Mushrooms
  9. Brazil nuts
  10. Pumpkin seeds

Chicken broth might be the most popular cold-fighting ingredient but there is a good variety of foods out there that can help strengthen your immune system.

Reduces Risk of Colds In Babies

A study conducted at the Emory University in Georgia have shown that babies whose mothers take supplements of Omega-3 oil during pregnancy suffer fewer colds and shorter illnesses.

DHA is particularly important for health and development during pregnancy and while nursing.  The study conducted on more than 800 babies showed that mothers who took 400mg DHA capsules each day had babies with fewer colds. After three months those whose mother had taken DHA Omega-3 supplements spent 14% less time ill, and at six months they had less fever, breathing problems, rashes and other illnesses but significantly higher levels of vomiting.

Baby sick with a cold

Expert panels recommend that DHA intake be 200-300 mg per day for pregnant and nursing women.  On average, pregnant and nursing women in North America consume 60-80mg of DHA a day, only 20-40% of the recommended intake.

High-Dose Omega-3 May Lower Alzheimer’s Disease Risk

A study conducted by Dr. Yassine, from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles has revealed that an Omega-3 supplementation in the pre-dementia stage of Alzheimer’s disease may slow early memory decline in APOE4 carriers.

APOE is the principal cholesterol carrier in the brain.[1] This protein is involved in Alzheimer’s disease and cardiovascular disease. [2]

DHA is critical to the formation of neuronal synapses and membrane fluidity. A DHA supplementation in APOE4 carriers can result in beneficial outcomes if the timing of the intervention precedes the onset of dementia.

Individuals with a single ε4 allele are three to four times more likely to develop AD as those without an ε4 allele, and people with two ε4 alleles have a 12-fold higher risk of developing AD, the researchers pointed out.

During the clinical trials, APOE4 carriers were classified into three stages based on disease severity.

Stage 1: In the earliest pre-dementia phase of the disease, participants would have evidence of brain imaging changes in areas vulnerable to AD. However, no cognitive changes, or only subtle ones, would be detectable.

Stage 2: It is for patients in an early prodromal stage of disease that long-term high dose DHA supplementation could slow cognitive decline, the researchers stated. Patients in this group would have evidence of memory and/or executive decline but no significant impairment in activities of daily living.

Stage 3: This stage represent clinical AD with impairments in multiple cognitive domains. DHA supplementation would probably not be beneficial in this group.

The study was supported by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, the Alzheimer’s Association, the National Institute on Aging, the LK Whittier Foundation, and Huntington Medical Research Institute.
