Sardines are one of the most underrated fish we know. They are a nutritional powerhouse consisting of a great combination of vitamins and minerals, which all have a benefit on our overall health.

We have all heard about good fats and Omega 3 fatty acids along the way and many of us consume these capsules on a daily basis. Many are aware of salmon being a great source of these fats however, sardines are often forgotten. It has been found that a serving size (85g) of sardines provides a whopping 1.9g of Omega 3 fatty acids. This amount is 11 times greater than what the average adult requires, on a daily basis.

As well as being an Omega 3 powerhouse, Sardines are a great source of Vitamins A, D, E and K as well as a nutritious source of Calcium (if you consume the cooked soft bones) and a perfect protein source. A serving size of Sardines, on a daily basis, will provide you with all the fat soluble vitamins you require. They also consist of a well-balanced amount of monounsaturated fatty acids, together with polyunsaturated fatty acids.

This superfood from the ocean is not to be forgotten. Next time you want a piece of fish, think of Sardines, and how much nourishment you will be provided with, by consuming one serving.
