  • Cooked sardines and oxidized PUFAs

    Hello I have a little question.
    Sometimes I buy sardines and like to cook them at once and then to use them sparingly over the course of the week, on my salads...etc

    But something came to mind : I'm pretty sure the PUFAs in it become oxidized ?
    Am I right ?
    Should I be worried about it ?

    Thanks

      Cook on lowish heat and enjoy. I cook mine into an omelet over about 250.

        i think that the whole foods tend to offer their own protections against this kind of thing - antioxidants, or polyphenols, or additional protective saturated fat, depending on the food. if you're eating whole foods, the chances of oxidation are far less, assuming you prepare them in a sensible way. fish oil capsules is a whole nother story.

        i wouldn't roast the sardines (lolz), but i really think you're fine doing what you're doing.

          Yes I cook them in an cast iron pan on moderate heat.

          Thanks for all the answers I'm reassured.
