According to the nutritionist, almost all herring is infected with helminths, which is why it needs to be frozen at a temperature of -23 … -30 degrees for two weeks.
“In factory production, this is always done, there are special cameras for this. And at home, it is simply packaged with pickling and distributed to markets in white buckets, so there is a risk of acquiring herring with “inhabitants” – with helminths, ”the specialist explained.

He stressed that only the herring that is sold in stores is safe. He clarified that, nevertheless, even the highest quality herring can be harmful to people with kidney disease, as well as obesity, since it is a product with a high salt content, writes Gazeta.Ru.
