Our light, fresh, flavorful pouched North Pacific Albacore Tuna is a wonderfully convenient source of essential nutrition.

It comes from a certified-sustainable, dolphin-safe fishery. And we select only smaller fish — 15 lbs. or under — to ensure optimal purity.

Unlike most brands, our fish is cooked only once, to preserve its fresh flavor, firm texture, and high levels of omega-3s and vitamin D.

The light, flexible, vacuum pouches are perfect for traveling, picnics, and a quick bite at work.

Open and enjoy — or add its nourishing deliciousness to sandwiches, salads, and whole-grain bread or crackers!

"Wild Smoke" Liavdra on 07/18/2021 00:21 Review: Eating the first several pouches, I thought never had I tasted anything so divine (except for cake), and determined always to buy only the smoked from then on out; that is, until the contents of the remaining pouches had been consumed. I hate to disparage any product from Vital Choice because everything is so outstandingly good; however, the smoked tuna was so tough as to be unappetizing. The wonderful flavor that alder wood smoke imparts did not improve them at all. It's unfortunate because I am sure it was an isolated instance. Thank you for posting your Product Review. Our Customer Service Team would like to reach out to you shortly to discuss your order. The Vital Choice Team
"Strong smoky flavor" M. Lyons on 05/16/2021 08:50 Review: A nice change from other tuna pouches or cans, with a strong smoky flavor. I made tuna salad but it might be better as a dollop on a cracker as an appetizer. I might buy again. Tuna was high quality, although harder to break up than canned tuna.
"Not Just for Sandwiches" Mari C on 03/02/2021 10:42 Review: The alder smoked tuna is of such high quality that it makes a beautiful Nicoise Salad or any other main course salad/entree. It's a go to staple in our house.
Ingredients: Pacific Albacore tuna, natural alder smoke flavor, sea salt

Mayo-Free Tuna Salad

We like to replace mayonnaise with heart-healthy olive oil. Mayo is usually made with oils high in generally pro-inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids, which compete with the omega-3s in fish for space in your cell membranes.

4 sun-dried tomatoes (optional)

1/4 red onion, minced

12 ounces Albacore Tuna, drained

1 rib celery, chopped

2 tablespoons organic extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil, cilantro, or parsley leaves

Sea salt and organic lemon-pepper mix

  • Cover the sun-dried tomatoes with hot water in a bowl.
  • Set aside until soft, about 20 minutes, then drain, chop, and put in a medium bowl.
  • To mellow the minced onion, soak it in cold water for 10 minutes, then drain it well, pat dry and add to the tomatoes.
  • Add the tuna, breaking it into large chunks, along with the celery and toss to combine.
  • Add the olive oil, lemon zest and juice, and basil and toss again. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper.
  • Serve on whole grain bread or mixed greens.

Storage

Keep in a cool,dark place. Consume before the Best By date stamped on each pouch.
