From herring to eternity

Only products without added oil, milk, or cream qualified for a "Best Bite." We also set an upper limit of 300 milligrams of sodium and 100 mg of cholesterol in a two-ounce serving (that knocked out shrimp).

What's more, for fish that come both with and without bones, we eliminated the boneless versions. That's because where there's bones there's calcium--anywhere from ten percent (salmon) to 18 percent (sardines) of the Daily Value. Within each category, products are ranked from least fat to most. (Fat numbers are rounded to the nearest gram.)
