Fish from warm waters, it is widely used for the preparation of preserves. Hence, Andalusia has obtained the certification of I.G.P. (Protected Geographical Indication) of “Melva de Andalucía”, establishing that the raw material, production and production process, must be located and carried out in the Andalusian Autonomous Community.
Therefore, it undergoes a transformation process, both peeling and stowage, in an artisanal and manual way, prohibiting the use of chemical products and/or preservatives, its only covering liquid being olive or sunflower oil.
The consumption of Frigate Mackerel canned is recommended because it is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and high in calcium and vitamins B12 and B3, both natural and canned.
