Well-being and sardines
With its semi-fatty flesh, sardines have a moderate caloric intake. It is very good for the skeleton thanks to its richness in phosphorus, essential for the proper functioning of bone tissue, and its high calcium content, especially if you eat it with the bones. Another important asset, it provides vitamin B3. As a guarantee of freshness, choose a firm sardine, with a shiny eye and without blood stains on the gills.
