Sardines is one of the most staple items in every Filipino home. It is one of the healthiest and most sustainable fish in our resources. It’s packed with amino acids and proteins that is essential in human growth. It is also a rich source of Omega-3 that strengthens the heart. Enriched with calcium, vitamin D and phosphorus, it ensures healthy skeletal structure.
I happened to stumble upon a new sardines brand from Ticao, Masbate. San Jacinto Sardines is prepared from fresh omega-rich tamban, bottled from the source – San Jacinto, Island of Ticao in Masbate, Philippines.
San Jacinto Sardines has spent several years on improving and innovating a world class product that would represent the local trade and compete with international competitors It was founded and grown exponentially since March 2012. The distributorship opened to expand the demanding market and contribute to the growing local market in the region. The product goes thru a rigorous quality check to ensure that the consumers are provided with the best quality of products.
Ticao Masbate Products, the company behind San Jacinto Sardines, was established in year 2008. It was duly registered in 2016 (FDA LTO No.: CFRR-RV-FM-3255). The sardines are mainly bottled in corn oil and olive oil with three distinct variants:
1) Original – This has to be my favorite. You can taste the creamy and natural flavor of the sardines. It’s perfect as sandwich filling or with garlic fried rice. I’ll give it an ACE.
2) Mild Hot – This is my least favorite although I love the spicy kick on each bite with this flavor. It’s perfect for pasta and pizza. My verdict? It’s a HIT.
3) Hot – This is my second favorite among the three. If your palette is adventurous enough, you should try this flavor. It’s perfect for fried rice, pasta or eaten as it is. You’ll definitely ask for more. My score? Of course, an ACE.
San Jacinto Sardines (SJS) is the number one bottled sardines brand in the Bicol Region. SJS is assisted by DTI, DOST, and FDA. They have successfully passed through commercial sterility, pH tests and certified by DOST. SJS is in compliance with Halal, HACCP and Nutrition Facts/ RENI and USFDA.
