Can we talk about canned salmon?

I agree, by using canned salmon with the bones and skin, you are getting a healthier combination of ingredients. Yes, canned salmon without the skin an bones is still healthy, but not as healthy as the canned salmon with bones and skin. The canning process softens the bones, making them easy to eat and easy for the body to absorb the calcium. I'm 61 years old, and have been eating the canned salmon with the bones and skin since I was a child. A bone density exam I had a little more than a year ago returned very good results.
People should do their best to get over their "gross out" ,
"revulsion" feelings when it comes to canned salmon with the bones and skin. It's all in the mind....not in reality.
But then...I get feeling sick to my stomach if I eat hot dog wieners or salami. So I avoid them. That's probably a good thing... since they are actually unhealthy foods, compared to canned salmon with the bones and skin...which is far healthier. :)

Canned salmon?

No one in my family would even think about removing the bones and skin from canned salmon. The high heat sterilization process softens them to the point where they can be easily mashed and blended into salmon salads, casseroles, and other delicious meals. There is no waste in canned salmon -- the liquid, skin, and bones are all edible and supply important nutrients such as calcium and phosphorus. The oily skin is high in Omega 3 fatty acids. As a kid, my mother would remove the bones and drop them in the tin and I would grab them and eat them. Now she has osteoporosis, and found out that you should eat the salmon bones from tinned salmon for increased calcium intake. She doesn't take them out any more.
It's never to late to learn new things about our food. But life long habits and dislikes are hard to break for some people. Everything in a tin of canned salmon can be eaten, including the juice.
