Does Anyone Buy This Salmon From Costco?

4 posts in this topic

Still trying to find a source for fish that i trust...this seems relatively innocent...does anyone buy this brand? I'm worried because in canada when I was home on a visit I was told that the bacon for instance...could be any number of brands from the grocery store only relabled as kirkland...which i found disturbing so i refused to eat the bacon not knowing what company i was eating. It's not the same with the fish and bacon down here is it? Well anyhow here's the salmon I wanted to buy..anyone eat this with luck?

I buy a lot of fish from Costco. I have never seen that brand BUT, if the label says that it only contains salmon and nothing else and that it is wild caught, I would eat it. They don't have gluten in these frozen fish factories. Just fish.

I agree.

But any time you buy a private label (house brand) product, you do not know who actually makes it. It may be any name brand manufacturer, or in some categories, there are manufacturers who only do contract production of private label products--they sell nothing of their own directly. Different products under the same name may be made by different manufacturers, and the manufacturer of any given product may change from time to time. BTW, even if you buy a national brand, the actual production may be contracted out.

But regardless of who makes it, the label laws and regulations apply. Wheat can not be hidden. Rye and oats don't hide. Nobody in their right mind would add barley malt to fish.

The only salmon I've had from Costco is the big package of the smoked salmon. It's in a black, big package. SO yummy.

    • Hello, I have frequent canker sores (roughly comes back every couple of months). Some blood test results are as following. Component Your Value Standard Range TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 0.31 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.96 Index <=0.90 Index My doctor said that result is unspecific, and I unlikely have celiac disease, since I do not have other abdominal symptoms. For reference, I do have frequent constipation, excessive gas, frequent canker sore, etc. Do you think an upper endoscopy is recommended? I am a little hesitate considering the risk of this procedure and the fact that my symptoms are not that bad. I appreciate all suggestions.  
    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.  
    • my daughter did stool test from enterolab but this gluten sensitive blood test is from http://requestatest.com/tests/search    
    • OK, was your daughter tested by a doctor or did you do one of these order online stool tests? And the same question goes for your tests. Can you give a link to the company?
    • NO. Approx. 1/3 of the population carries the genes for celiac but that does NOT mean they will ever present with celiac. Only a small percentage of them will. A gene test is really used more to rule out celiac rather than to diagnose it. What I meant was that since your daughter is diagnosed and IF you carry one or both of the celiac genes then there is a greater chance you are celiac or "early stages" especially in light of your symptoms. All 3 of those factors weighed together was what I was referring to.
