Try going to some of the high-end restaurants in your area and talk to the chefs there. They'll have the most current information. Just avoid the lunch and dinner rushes ;-).

I was reading one of Kris Kresser's post about fish oil and someone in the comment section advised not to pour out the juice in sardines making the claim that that's where all the Omega-3's are. I get mine packed in spring water and have always... (more)

This (older) newspaper article says not much of the omega-3 was lost in water packed fish, more in oil packed fish since the omega-3 is oil soluable and more leeched out into the oil used in canning. (more)

I don't remember where I read it but is the omega 3 somehow reduced when sardines are canned in oil? I'm guessing it's just that they drained them and the lost olive oil had absorbed some of the omega 3. If you eat the olive oil too is it just... (more)

I wouldn't sweat it. Sardines are there for the omega-3 content, and you're not destroying that by diluting it with soybean or sunflower oils (as oil-packed sardines tend to be). Olive oil-packed, well, you are adding omega-6s to a omega-3 source,... (more)

I've seen this mentioned on here but because many of us eat a lot of sardines I think it warrants discussion. Is the olive oil oxidized during the canning process? If so, would it be better to buy them in water?
