Omega 6 in sardines a concern?

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created February 28, 2013 at 4:46 PM

I always wrote off all the omega 6 talk as mainly relating to seed oils so considered omega 6's in meats/fish as generally ok

Is it right thinking like this though?

I like eating sardines everyday, and often it'll be the only animal product ill eat, i'll have many cans, usually i'll only have loads of them after swimming so im sure im using up most of the fats but i don't want to be causing inflammation, maybe the omega 3's would balance it out

I also keep hearing about omega 3's being unsafe/unstable at body temparature so unsafe to consume, but maybe when its bound up in protein of the fish its ok? And this talk is related to suppliments

Thanks for any ideas

Eat a tin of the Wild Planet ones every day. They taste the best too, in my opinion.

That's the last thing you should be worried about with sardines.

BPAs and safflower oils should be your concern. The omegas of sardine are as healthy as it gets.

It's the omega 3:6 ratio that's especially important for inflammation specifically. It does seem like you're eating an awful lot of sardines though.
