Seal meat nutrition

Let’s look at the numbers. First, protein. Harp seal loin has 23 grams of protein per 100 gram serving; flipper meat has just slightly less at 21 grams per serving. That’s a lot more than chicken (14.6 grams) or fish (17.8 grams).

And while beef and pork have close to the same amount of protein as seal, seal is far lower in fat—less than 2% fat, in fact, while beef, for example, averages 23%.  Seal meat also has many times the amount of iron and calcium of those other protein sources, and significantly more magnesium and vitamin B12.

Nutrition facts

  • Excellent source of protein (23%) and low in fat (2%).
  • Very nutritious: high in iron, zinc, magnesium and vitamin B12.
  • All natural, wild game meat with no antibiotics or growth hormones.

People should know what they’re eating. That’s why alternative protein sources like seal, which is from one of the most natural environments on earth, should be more readily available and accepted. It’s high in protein, lean, really low in cholesterol, and actually one of the best sources of iron there is. What’s best about natural proteins like seal is that you know where it’s come from. You know what you’re eating. You know it’s not processed in any way. And it’s from a sustainable source.

High in iron and other minerals

Iron deficiency is a common concern for many in Canada and around the world. In Canada, more than 10% of women of reproductive age do not consume enough iron. Low iron levels lead to anemia, which is linked to low energy levels, impaired cognitive function, compromised immunity, and slowed metabolism.

One 100 gram serving of seal loin contains 35.5 mg of iron, or 250% of Health Canada’s recommended daily intake. The same amount of beef, pork, poultry, or fish contains less than 2 mg iron.

Seal meat is also relatively high in:

  • Calcium: 591 mg per serving (compared to 78 mg in poultry, 3.5 in beef)
  • Magnesium: 34 mg per serving (pork has 27 mg; beef, poultry, and chicken are all less)

But is seal meat safe?

The short answer is: yes. Seal meat is very safe. Hunters involved in the seal harvest are trained and certified by provincial authorities to inspect, process, and store seal in accordance with high standards, equivalent to those in place for domestic livestock. As well, seals are watched from a distance before being harvested, to make sure that they behave normally.

You can eat seal meat with confidence, knowing it is a natural, wild meat, raised without hormones, antibiotics, or processed food. Seals are harvested from their natural habitat, the pristine icy north Atlantic, ensuring the meat is delicious and nutritious.

As well, seal meat processing facilities must be certified by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (Learn more on the Code of Practice for the Harvest, Transport, Processing, and Export of Seal Products Intended for Human Consumption) and meet or exceed all Health Canada guidelines.
