The Instacart guide to sardines

About sardines

A sardine is a small and very nutritious fish. They are typically canned in oil, water, or marinade, but you can also buy them fresh in some locations. Some types of sardines are smoked for additional flavor. They have a strong meaty texture and a distinctive smell.

Sardines include important nutrients, such as B vitamins, minerals, and choline. The vitamin B12 found in sardines supports a healthy cardiovascular system, while vitamin D contributes to healthy bone structure.

Like other types of oily fish, they contain omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to support good cardiovascular health and prevent inflammation. These fatty acids also play an important part in reducing the risk of blood clots and lowering blood pressure. Sardines are also a great source of calcium, which helps maintain strong bones, and iron, which is critical to produce energy and help circulate oxygen around the body. Other minerals found in sardines are zinc, potassium, and magnesium. Studies have shown that including oily fish, like sardines, in your diet can contribute to healthy brain function.

Sardines are a good source of protein, which keeps your immune system strong and ensures good bone and muscle development.

Fresh sardines can be sold with the head and tail intact or as fillets. When purchasing fresh sardines, look for fish with bright eyes and shiny skin with the scales intact. The flesh should have a pinkish color and appear firm. Discolored skin can be a sign that the fish is not of good quality.
