Tried it Tuesday: Safe Catch Tuna #Giveaway

Canned tuna is a great source of protein, but it’s been getting a bad rap in recent years due to mercury levels. Many fit folks, and families, use canned tuna as part of a healthy diet, but the numbers have been on the decline in recent years.

Great news! Safe Catch is using sustainably caught tuna and is testing every single fish for mercury. Their canned tuna is sashimi grade and contains no additives or fillers. Their “Elite” tuna’s limit for mercury is ten times more strict than FDA guidelines and the Albacore is three times more strict. The hand packed tuna is not processed so it retains more healthy Omega 3s than other brands.

Safe Catch tuna is gluten free, Paleo certified, kosher, non-GMO project verified and dolphin safe. It comes in two varieties (and one no salt added) in convenient 5 oz. cans with easy open lids or 3 oz. no drain pouches.

Safe Catch introduced a new seasoned line at Expo West. The ingredients they use to season it are pure and natural. They’re adding spices and herb blends like Cajun, chili lime, citrus pepper, tandoori, and habanero mint with a touch of avocado oil. Each can has over 28 grams of protein to keep you fueled and full for hours. I can’t wait to try these!

I tried the Elite wild tuna steak. I added it to my salad greens and veggies with salt, pepper and a small amount of dressing. It was delicious. [I forgot to take a photo – blogger fail!] Each can has over 30 grams of protein and only 150 calories. I love knowing that it’s safe to eat this tuna as much as I want.

Want to check out Safe Catch yourself? I have three 3 oz pouches of the Wild Albacore tuna that I’ll send to a lucky winner. Please use the Rafflecopter below to enter. The giveaway is open to US residents, 18 years of age or older and is void where prohibited. The giveaway will be open through 4/26. Winners will be selected and notified on 4/27.

    Thank you for the review.

  2. jberry says:

    I use canned tuna for a quick salad w/ whatever is on hand. Any random combo of radish, scallion, yellow pepper, avocado. Dressed with a citrus juice, kefir, oil. I eat less tuna out of preference to canned salmon.

  3. Renata says:

    I love making healthy tuna salad sandwiches with a mixture of Greek yogurt and honey mustard dressing.

  4. Georgette Coan says:

    I do still eat canned tuna, though the punches are usually easier than keeping a can opener at work. No, despite Mercury concerns, I still eat a ton of tuna.

    LOVE my tuna fish sandwich…….. but I have been eating in salads, cooking with it………….. at the very least once a week or more

  6. Amy Scott says:

    I really love tuna and mostly eat the pouches because they are more portable. I mostly love the easy protein option and that tuna is savory unlike a sweet protein bar.

    I mix my tuna with yogurt, Greek if I have it. I don’t put it with bread, just eat it as is. Yes I don’t eat as much tuna, but eat more canned salmon, because of the mercury. I have tired this since it was in a food subscription box. It was good!

    We make tuna sandwiches on toast. I am the biggest tuna eater, I will get a fork and just plop it onto a plate. I eat about the same amount as before. I do watch for brands who practice safe fishing practices though.

  28. Elizabeth Tarlow says:

    My husband loves Tuna Melts, so every once in a while I make open faced Tuna Melts. I have cut back on using canned Tuna as much, due to the mercury content, and recently bought one can of wild caught Tuna, but it’s so expensive…out of our budget on a regular basis!

That picture of the tuna above, well, I am going to have tuna salad tomorrow for sure!
