We are constantly being told by the health professionals to keep the fat content of what we eat down, but we are told we can eat oily fish. Because I do not eat fresh fiish at home because (a) the smell, and (b) the bones, I buy my fish tinned. I regularly buy John West Kipper Fillets in brine which I rinse before eating believing it had a low fat content. However, today I looked at the can and the fat contect of 100g drained is 16g of which saturates 3.7g and polyunsaturates 3.3g of which omega 3 1.2g. 16g to me looks rather high and I find it very confusing as which are the "right" or "wrong" fats. In addition, I also bought a tin of herring fillets in tomato sauce the total fat content of which is 28.6 per can!!! Saturates 4.8g.
