Why is our albacore so high in Omega 3 content? The answer is simple. At Wild Planet Foods we cook our Albacore only once, in the can, without any added oil or water. This allows for all of the natural fish oils to stay inside our can unlike many brands which remove most of the Omega 3 in their pre-cooking process before the fish is packed with additional water, oil and/or fillers and which are then used in the production of fishmeal, amongst other aftermarket products. Each two-ounce serving of our albacore tuna contains an average of 800mg EPA and DHA Omega 3 fatty acids. There aren’t many foods on the planet that match our DHA content, which is why our tuna has been called a “foodaceutical” by many nutritionists.
