How to recognize harmful herring

Herring is sold fresh and frozen. You can also buy the fish in canned form, in vacuum packs, salted, or pickled. If you buy pickled or salted packaged fish, pay special attention to the expiration date. If it is long, chemicals are used for cooking.

What is the danger of such fish

Pickled herring

A very harmful preservative, urotropin E239, is often used to cook herring. It extends the shelf life of the product but poisons the body.

Salted herring can provoke an increase in blood pressure in people suffering from hypertension. People with kidney disease are also not recommended to eat such fish.
