“Sardine” and “pilchard” are common names for various small, oily forage fish in the herring family Clupeidae. The term “sardine” was first used in English during the early 15th century, it comes from the Italian island of Sardinia, around which sardines were once abundant.
The terms “sardine” and “pilchard” are not precise, and what is meant depends on the region. The United Kingdom’s Sea Fish Industry Authority, for example, classifies sardines as young pilchards. One criterion suggests fish shorter in length than 15 cm (6 in) are sardines, and larger fish are pilchards.
Sardines are an excellent source of vitamin B-12. This vitamin helps your cardiovascular system and gives you energy.
In addition, these fish contain a healthy amount of vitamin D. Along with B-12, D is necessary for good bone health throughout your life.
Sardines are an excellent source of calcium. That makes them a good choice for those who are lactose intolerant, allergic to dairy, or need more calcium in their diet.
This can also be helpful during pregnancy if you need alternative forms of calcium for the health of your baby.
