At the same time, fatty fish varieties are best eaten by people over 40 years old, but only in their own juice – without tomato or oil dressing. You should not eat canned food every day, because one can of such products may contain a daily allowance of salt – an overdose is harmful to the body.
How to properly store canned fish
As we have already said, the maximum shelf life of canned fish – 2 years. The thing is that the fish carcass spoils faster than the meat, so the same stew will be stored much longer than, for example, sardines in a jar.
When opening canned fish, you should immediately:
- transfer them to a glass or ceramic container;
- close tightly and refrigerate.
From now on, they must be kept maximum 48 hours. If the fish is completely covered with oil, then the time is doubled. After the specified time, canned fish should not be eaten.
