Calories in Sardine Oil

When It comes to the calories in sardine oil, like other fish oils from the deep cold sea, in small amounts it is good for you. Sardine fish oil is considered one of the healthy oils, but too much of a good thing will still make you gain weight.  An average of 1 tablespoon a day when trying to lose weight should be enough.  If you are getting fats and oils from other sources you will not need this much.

One thing you will notice about this chart is that there are few vitamins and minerals left after processing the oil. Why not just eat sardines and get some oil that way. The sardines will have more protein and nutrition.  Be careful though; I know that too much fish will put the weight on you and me both. Also be careful as to what kind of oil the sardines are packed in. Sardines are also a good source of  calcium, because you are basically eating real small bones.
