Titus is a premium brand of Sardines which has been trusted for generations all over the world. It enjoys the pedigree of being around for over 80 years and is known for its high quality, great taste, aroma and nutritional values. It is rich in Protein, Vitamin D, Vitamin B12 and contains heart-friendly oils.
Titus canned Sardines can also be used with bread as sandwich and also comes in handy in preparing small chops such as fish rolls. It is also excellent for rice, spaghetti, yam and host other dishes to which it adds great taste and flavour..
Titus Sardines represent an invaluable source of fish protein and will go a long way in helping to balance the nutrition need of Nigerians. The Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO) some years back estimated that animal protein consumption of Nigerians was only two percent of the recommended level. Canned Titus Sardines are rich in fish protein with many advantages over meat and other sources. This is largely because, according to the FAO, fishes are more affordable, more digestible and nutritious. T itus Sardines contain more Lysine and essential Amino Acids than meat and are devoid of Cholesterol.
Protein from Titus canned Sardines is 70 percent assimilated through the human alimentary Channel, compared to less than 15 percent of meat and less than 10 percent for vegetable proteins. Researchers are of the view that regular consumption of Titus canned Sardines may reduce the risk of diseases ranging from childhood asthma to prostate cancer. The product is low in fat, high in protein and an excellent source of Omega 3 fatty acids.
In fact the Omega 3 fatty acids in Titus canned Sardines may reduce the risk of many types of cancers by 30 to 50 percent, especially of the oral cavity, esophagus, colon, breast and ovary. Health and nutrition experts also credit canned Titus Sardines with efficacy in reducing the risk of heart diseases and stroke by reducing blood clots and inflammation, improving blood vessel elasticity, lowering blood pressure, lowering blood fats and boosting good cholesterol.
Breast feeding and expectant mothers who develop the habit of consuming canned Titus Sardines reap the benefit in the mould of giving birth to babies with bright eyesight. In the case of pregnant women, experts say intake of canned Titus Sardines hugely helps reducing the risk of having premature babies.
UNIMER Group SA says in re-invigorating the marketing strategies of the brand, it aims to resuscitate the menus of Nigerian home makers across all the economic strata and also to boost the protein intake of the populace without necessarily digging a hole in the pockets of Nigerians as canned
