Nutrition Facts About Sardine

Nutrients including calcium, omega-3 fatty acids, and protein may all be found in moderation in sardines. The soft bones of sardines

are edible, which accounts for a large portion of their calcium content. Three ounces (one can, drained) of King Oscar Wild

Caught Sardines in Extra Virgin Olive Oil, for example, contain almost twenty percent of the daily need of 1,300 mg of calcium. In

a serving of the same size, the company's boneless, skinless sardines in olive oil only contain 6% of the daily required

intake. Sardines are high in vitamin D, another substance that many of us are deficient in. Depending on the species,

three ounces of fish can provide you with anywhere from 15 to 70 percent of the daily 20 microgram amount.
