Plant-based meat alternatives have been doing incredibly well. The Beyond Meat burger and Impossible Burger rival traditional beef patties so much that big meat producers like Nestle and Tyson Foods are eager to join the plant-based market with their own meat alternatives. There are even Beyond Meat Sausages to compete with other meat proteins. But there is something that’s been quite difficult for plant-based alternatives to match: seafood. However, one company, Good Catch is leading the way!
Good Catch makes chef-created vegan tuna alternatives which replicate the flavors and flaky textures of chunk albacore tuna. These products contain Omega-3 fatty acids, a proprietary six-legume blend, 14g of protein per serving, are gluten-free, dairy-free, and GMO-free, as well as being shelf stable. They are available in three flavors: Naked in Water, Mediterranean, and Oil & Herbs.
With these alternatives, you don’t have to worry about your meal being filled with mercury, toxins, plastics, or microfibers. You can also feel better about choosing a more environmentally-friendly alternative. Scientists predict that global fisheries will totally collapse by 2048. Not to mention half of US fish consumption is factory farmed where conditions are cruel.
Now you can find Good Catch products at Whole Foods and online at Thrive Market! This is exciting news for those who want to enjoy the flavors they grew up enjoying with the cruelty and environmental consequences.
