About This Food

Description

Anchovies are a small, salt water fish that are often processed in salt to mature and preserve their flavor. They’re naturally oily, but unless you buy them raw, they’ll likely be jarred or canned in oil. Due to their salty composition, they’re popular as an additive ingredient in moderation.

Even in their small portions, they are packed with essential nutrients vital to overall health. Anchovies are rich in omega-3 fats, which help improve heart health and brain functionality. They also have high levels of iron, vitamins A and E, calcium and potassium.r
