How is Canned Seafood Made? No Preservatives Needed!

HOME   /   NUTRITION & INSPIRATION

Canned or tinned seafood is fish that have been cooked in a hermetically sealed can and subjected to high heat thermal process to achieve commercially sterile foods. This method preserves the food and provides a typical shelf life ranging from two to five years. The retort cooking process under high heat kills any bacteria, which is why no preservatives are needed.

Our all-natural tuna and salmon packed in water contains only three simple ingredients: wild caught fish, water, and salt.

Canned fish are rich in protein and many other essential nutrients. Many of our varieties, such as Clover Leaf Albacore tuna, salmon, and sardines, are also a good source of omega-3 fatty acids.

Many people are surprised to hear that canned seafood is almost as nutritious as fresh seafood. This is possible because most canned seafood is processed from freshly caught fish or is immediately frozen at sea, which protect nutrients from degrading. The canning process preserves fish at its peak point so you can enjoy high quality seafood.
