Our answer:

Well, the tongue twister is not in vain: Fischers Fritz fishes fresh fish. "Fish canning is richer than normal fish, as it almost always is floating in oil"Says Monika Erdmann, graduate nutrition scientist at the German Society for Nutrition in Frankfurt. "The nutritional content is practically unchanged with any type of processing by fat, salt and added sugars." Tuna in oil, for example, a quarter provides more power, 30 percent more fat and even 500 percent more salt than fresh variant. His advantage on the other side: The addition of oils (sunflower or wheat germ oil) increases the vitamin E content.

And if we are on the plate: If the fish can even open and is not completely empty, contrary to expectations, the rest can be stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator and eaten within two days. Immediately in the garbage cans, however belong with bloated, bulging lids: In them lies not only delicious fish, but probably also the one or other dangerous bacteria that could cause food poisoning.
