Rain­bow trout can­not be sal­mon: ex­pert

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - PULSE -

Shang­hai Con­sumer Coun­cil held a pub­lic dis­cus­sion on Tues­day to dis­cuss the re­la­tion be­tween rain­bow trout and sal­mon and whether raw rain­bow trout is safe to eat, thep­a­per.cn re­ported.

Ac­cord­ing to a pro­fes­sor from Shang­hai Ocean Univer­sity, rain­bow trout can not be la­beled as sal­mon but it is safe to eat raw if it is raised in clean con­di­tions.

No­tice­ably, Nor­we­gian Food Safety Au­thor­ity also an­nounced that it is safe to eat farmed At­lantic sal­mon and rain­bow trout from Norway without freez­ing. Stud­ies con­firm that it is un­likely to find the par­a­sites such as Anisakis in those species, ac­cord­ing to the Nor­we­gian au­thor­ity. Ad­di­tion­ally, any par­a­sites found in food in­tended to be con­sumed raw or al­most raw must be re­ported to the au­thor­ity.

Ex­perts ask for more de­tailed stan­dards to reg­u­late the in­dus­try in China.
