The Health Benefits of Cod
Seafood is widely regarded by medical experts and dieticians to be healthy, providing nutritional benefits not found in other meat sources. While salmon is often widely publicized for its health benefits, in general, most fish species are also low in calories and fat, but high in protein, vitamins, and minerals.
Icelandic Cod contains 15 grams of protein in every 3 oz. with only 70 calories and just .5 grams of fat. Cod, like many fish, also contains omega-3 fatty acids to help lower cholesterol, control high blood pressure, and reduce the risk of heart disease. Icelandic Cod is also an excellent source of vitamins B3 and B12, the antioxidant selenium, and iodine, which assists in thyroid hormone regulation to better control metabolism and cognitive function.

Simple Instructions for Storing and Thawing Icelandic Cod
Storage: Keep frozen ≤ 0℉ (-18° C). Vacuum-sealed fish held under these conditions should retain their quality for at least 6 to 12 months. Lean white fish (halibut, cod) generally have a longer freezer life than fatty fish (salmon, tuna, sablefish). It is important to note seafood stored in frost-free freezers should be used within 3 months.
Thawing instructions: Thaw under refrigeration ≤ 38℉ (3℃). Before thawing, puncture or remove packaging. For quick-thawing, place frozen fish in cool water for approximately 20 to 30 minutes, just until the contents are flexible. Once thawed, immediately cook or refrigerate (if refrigerating, puncture the package). Regardless of the chosen thawing technique, once the product is thawed, it should be cooked within 24 hours and stored at a temperature no higher than 38℉ (3℃).
