UNITED STATES :Whole Foods Market and Thrive Market are the first retailers to sell shelf-stable plant based tuna products manufactured by Good Catch in their stores throughout the country.
According to the company, its products of vegetable origin provide the maximum in terms of its seafood taste, texture and nutrition with minimal impact on the planet and fragile ocean ecosystems.
Co-founded by renowned chefs Chad and Derek Sarno, Wicked Healthy authors, and plant based culinary pioneers, Good Catch achieved to capture the ocean flavor and flaky texture of chunk albacore tuna. Its plant based tuna, elaborated with a patented mixture of six legumes and rich in omega-3 acids, is sold in 3.3 oz bags and is ready to eat.
The company notes that its tuna provides 14 protein per serving, has a superior umami flavor of seaweed oil and contains no gluten, dairy or genetically modified organisms. It is available in three flavors: Naked in Water, Mediterranean and Oil & herbs.
"We've created a true tuna texture and taste profile," said Good Catch Co-Founding Chef Chad Sarno. "Good Catch products are a one-to-one swap in any recipe that calls for tuna, and can be the centerpiece of any entrée, sandwich, chowder, or salad.”
“Plant based tuna is the culmination of our experience as plant-based chefs, combined with our passion for healthy eating as well as animal and environmental welfare. We're redefining seafood for omnivores and plant based eaters alike," he added.
"Our mission is to disrupt the seafood category with delicious plant based options," said Good Catch co-founder and CEO Chris Kerr. "And give consumers everything like they like about seafood, but without the mercury poisoning."
