Anchovies, Marinated Anchovies, +/-100g - Spain
Marinated Anchovies are packed with omega-3 fatty acids, benefiting your heart. They lower triglyceride levels, prevent plaque buildup in arteries, and reduce blood pressure. They also decrease the risk of stroke by preventing blood clotting.
The mouthwatering umami in cured anchovy dishes is due to glutamate developed during the salting process. Enzymes and good bacteria transform the fish into a salty, briny treat with minimal fishy taste.
