WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SARDINE AND THE HERRING
We know that herring and sardines are both high in omega-3 fatty acids. What is the difference between them, we will advise you how and best to buy them?
There is a big difference between sardines and herring. In fact, sardines mean small fish. (The fish in question is named after Sardinia, the second largest island in the Mediterranean, because they used to be so rich in this area.) When they were young, these fish were called sardines. As they get older and older, they are called herring. For centuries, herring has been a staple of Northern European food – Scandinavian, Russian, Dutch, British and German.
Both herring and sardines are good for us because they provide heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, essential fats that also play an important role in brain development and normal functioning. Research only omega-3 can regulate inflammation, and may help reduce the risk and symptoms of a range of disorders affected by inflammation, including heart attacks, strokes, cancers and autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis. People with high cholesterol, diabetes, PMS symptoms, coronary artery disease, breast cancer, memory impairment, depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, insulin resistance and arthritis may also benefit from Omega-3 fatty acids are found in fish oil. In general, these 2 types of fish are very good for health.
Herring can be up to about 1.5 feet long. They are abundant cold water fish in the northern Atlantic and Pacific. Pacific herring has been reported to live up to 19 years and can live as freshly as in salt water. Too cool, isn’t it?
I wrote about sardines before and celebrated the increasing availability of freshly baked things. If you’re not familiar with sardines, try my recipe for sardines sandwiches, an easy-to-cook and delicious lunch.
Fresh herring is higher in omega-3 than herring sold in any other way, but you rarely see it. (I ate it baked in Japan and liked it that way.) You will get the same health benefits by eating fresh sardines. However, you can take (and eat safely) raw herring (it is used in sushi), smoked or pickled and flavor in a variety of ways. Your choice depends on your taste, but I recommend trying different types until you discover one that appeals to you. In addition to its health benefits, herring often comes as a ready meal to be served. One of my favorites is herring (smoked); Find it in cans in any supermarket and eat it with lemon, mustard and onions.
