Protein is an essential part of everyone’s diet whether you’re six or sixty, running a marathon or just running after the kids. It helps burn fat if you’re dieting and bolsters the immune system by building infection-fighting white blood cells, especially important for young children and the elderly. Protein acts as building blocks for bones, muscles, skin and blood. Teenage girls and women in their childbearing years are especially prone to iron-deficient anemia. By consuming adequate amounts of protein-rich foods such as meat, fish, beans and nuts many of these health issues can be avoided.
But not all protein is created equal and where your protein comes from is as important as how much you are taking in. Every can of Wild Planet sustainably sourced seafood is packed with tasty, nutritious, protein-rich fish. In fact, one can of Wild Planet Albacore Tuna has 32 grams of protein as compared to 26 grams found in conventional water- or oil-packed tuna. For the athlete on the go or the busy mom making school lunches, all of our products feature only the highest-quality protein. We believe in purity of ingredients, which is why our albacore tuna contains simply that – albacore tuna and a touch of sea salt. The same cannot be said about many of the other brands on store shelves today, whose cans contain hydrolyzed vegetable proteins and pyrophosphates.
