Bonito in olive oil is a source of omega-3 fatty acids, an essential fatty acid that must always be present in the diet.
This product, in turn, has a high content of proteins and omega-3 fatty acids, as well as a high content of vitamin D, which contributes to the absorption and normal use of calcium and maintenance of normal levels of it in the blood.
The most highly prized and scarce kind of tuna. It has a scaly, oval-shaped body, with a distinctive dark blue back and whitish belly. It is easy to recognize thanks to its central fin, which is longer, measuring more than two-thirds of the length of the fish. The average size is around 75 cm (29.5 inches) and weighs around 10 kilograms (22 pounds). It is a migratory species and, due to the delicate color of its meat and the geographical area of its origin, it is marketed under the names ABLANCO TUNA or NORTH TUNA (Thunnus Alalunga).
Bonito del Norte is fished by rod, in the Cantabrian Sea, during the months of July and August to be prepared at its optimum moment of fat and texture.
The meat on its belly, called ventresca, is especially valued due to its delicate taste and texture.
