Albacore is an excellent source of protein, is low in sodium and contains the highest concentrations (2.1 g per 3.5 oz serving) of heart-healthy Omega-3 fatty acids in the tuna family.  Regular consumption of Omega-3 rich fish such as albacore has been linked to reduced risk of heart attack and stroke, reduction of depression-related symptoms, relief from arthritis pain and a lowering of blood pressure.

MERCURY is not a concern for the young, fat albacore we offer exclusively with our products.  Tests done on our products reveal extraordinarily low levels at 0.2 ppm and lower.  Click here for more on Mercury, mercury levels in fish and test results for our products and a comparison with other canned tuna.  The FDA recommended limit is 1.0 ppm.
