Safe Catch Tuna Review and Giveaway
As ones pallet matures and gets more refined minor variations in taste become more obvious. I mention this because there are a couple foods that no matter what, the more you pay the better the product. These type of items are peanut butter, honey, pancake syrup and tuna.
There have been moments in the past (shhh don’t tell Jason) that I have tried to pull the wool over his eyes and bought the lesser versions. Nine times out of ten his refined pallet knows the difference and I am unable to fool him otherwise. Where this becomes obvious in tuna and tuna quality.
Let’s talk for a moment about tuna, quality and mercury. Tuna is notorious for having mercury and because of this tuna is generally not safe for pregnant women – until now! I recently tried a new brand of Wild Albacore tuna and Wild Skipjack Tuna (no longer available on their website) by a company called Safe Catch by Safe Foods.
What is special about Safe Catch tuna? This is the only tuna that is 100% Mercury tested – yes I just said 100% tested, which means every single tuna is tested and if it measures above their stringent standards then it is included. All of the tuna caught by Safe Catch is not only dolphin safe as well as being pole and troll line caught.
Safe Catch tuna contains no additives, is Non-GMO, and is BPA Free (BPA is an industrial chemical that is used to coat the inside of metal tins amoungst other things). All Safe Catch products are sustainability caught which means that the long-term vitality of the harvested species as well as the well being of oceans is taken into consideration..
When you open a can of Safe Catch tuna the first thing that greets you is the lack of fluid. Safe Catch does not add water to their products, only relying on the natural juices from the fish. The best way to describe the can contents is to imagine a tuna steak. The reason for this is that Safe Catch packs raw hand-cut fish into the can, then using a proprietary process cooks the tuna. The result is a high quality tuna that tastes closer to a tuna steak then shredded tuna.
The retail on this can is around $3-4 dollars a can, which in comparison to the average on sale can is a little more money with much more taste – worth the extra cost and I do not have to fool Jason anymore.
I encourage all of you to visit Safe Catch
