Portugal is a nation that is closely associated with the sea, and where there is sea, there is an abundance of seafood. When it comes to seafood, it is impossible to overlook the importance of cockles. These small bivalves are incredibly nutritious, being rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids and other beneficial components that are essential for maintaining healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Their heart-shaped shells are a testament to their impressive nutritional value. Canned cockles preserve all of their nutrients through excellent technical processing, making them an ideal year-round option for those who have concerns about consuming seafood in months without the letter "R."
Once upon a time, there was a little bivalve who dreamed of growing up to become a cockle. However, the tiny creature did not understand why it was given such a name. Despite being the subject of friendly teasing, the little cockle remained puzzled. No one could explain the origin of the word. Some speculated that it was an augmentative, while others simply shrugged and said, "It's natural!" It was only when the cockle emerged from its shell and received praise for its quality that it finally understood. Being called a "cockle" was indeed an augmentative, but one that reflected the superior quality of the bivalve. And that was perfectly natural!
