The Story



The sardine is very nutritious and has many health benefits.

The CLUPEA PILCHARDUS commonly called “sardine” can only be found in the Mediterranean Sea.
Other fishes, which don’t belong to the CLUPEA PILCHARDUS family, are wrongly called “sardines”.
These fishes do not have the nutrients, health benefits and unique flavour of the true “sardine”.
Our body needs a particular quality of acid fats which we cannot produce and are unable to acquire from meats or vegetables. Acid fats are available in blue fish and particularly in sardines.
Sardines in Soya oil contain a large quantity of polyunsaturated acid fats, from the Lyn-oleic acid and particularly eicosapentanoïc acid. The latter has anti-arteriosclerosis and anti-thrombosis effects, which have been proved by in vitro and in vivo test.
Health benefits’ results have been confirmed by epidemic studies performed in the Eskimo and Japanese populations who have a large fish consumption ratio. This high fish consumption reduces cardiovascular problems and heart disease.
Moreover, among other health benefits, “Pollastrini di Anzio” sardine cures and prevents osteoporosis. The tender and easily digestible sardine bone reinforces bones especially in women.
Throughout Italy, all the doctors who treat heart cardiovascular diseases prescribe “sardine” as an essential part of one’s diet.
As far as their nourishing value is concerned, “sardines” in Soya oil and olive oil of “Pollastrini di Anzio” have an excellent price/value ratio compared to other food groups, primarily meat, cheese and eggs.
