The roe (Mananjil / Paringil) of marine animals, such as the roe of sardine, lumpsucker, hake and salmon is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids.

This food is a good source of Vitamin C, Thiamin, Folate and a very good source of Protein, Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Riboflavin, Vitamin B12, Phosphorus and Selenium etc. Unfortunately as its the egg yolk, it is very high in Cholesterol too. So even if this food appears tempting, restrict the intake depending on your lipid profiles 🙂
