I chose this brand...
- It's BPA free
- They are wild caught
- It's available at my local Kroger store (in the organic section)
- The ingredient list looks clean: Sardines, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Water, Sea Salt, Aqueous Natural Smoke (I'm not sure what "natural smoke" is, but I'm hoping it's nothing scary)
These were actually quite good! I'll even eat them again. I would rather eat a can of these (or split it with my husband) a few days a week than take fish oil supplements. I'm not sure how many sardines I need to eat in a week to equal the benefits of supplements, but I'm willing to bet the nutrients in the sardines themselves are more bioavailable than in the supplements.
According to this chart, one can of these per week would give me enough Omega 3s.
