If you prefer to have the best plus fresher canned sardines product, then you should carefully look for the sardines texture because some manufacturers like to use frozen sardines. They simply froze the sardines first before canning which sadly they will never mentioned it on the product label so it is impossible to tell whether the factories or distributors use frozen fish before canned them.

Meanwhile, there are canned sardines soaked into water, but the quality of the texture may not as good as sardines in oil products.
4.      The processing before canning
Some sardines are smoked before canning and some are fried, although the second one is very rarely to be found in grocery stores, it is okay since most people still prefers smoked canned sardines. Most of the sardines are prepared with minimal process and they tend to remove the head. Some of the sardines are boneless and there are some of them which are pure bone-in. Take a note that the more they are handled plus processed, the worse the quality of the canned products. For example, some of the sardines canned fish company have difficulty to even sorting out the sardines by sizes which in the end ruin the whole product.
Those points are important to be taken into consideration before buying sardines canned fish at grocery stores or markets, except of course you also need to consider the price.
