Benefits of Eating Canned Tuna

It’s a fast-paced world we’re living in and so, more often than not, we tend to sacrifice our time and health to make way for deadlines and deliverables.

The 2017 Jean Hailes for Women’s Health Survey of more than 10,000 Australian women from ages 18 to 89 revealed that women are too tired to engage in physical activities. It is also hard for them to find time for exercise although they want to lose weight, improve diet, get better sleep, practice work-life balance, exercise more, and go to regular health check-ups to improve their health.

The respondents also said that issues such as mental health, obesity, stress management and weight control, among others, are important to them.

Given the “super busy” culture we are in, we also tend to forego making home-cooked meals or even skipping meals altogether.

It’s a bad habit and one that we hope to help correct with several variants of tuna-in-can products for your choosing.

We listed down five benefits of eating canned tuna for your reading pleasure:

All about convenience
Busy with too many deadlines to beat and yet the traffic problem is making your headache? Or… too tired to make that pack lunch or whip up a decent dinner at home? A can of Christa Tuna may just do the job for you. Our Tuna in Kampoeng Fried Rice Sauce is a time-saving miracle food and it can literally save the day! Open a can of this tuna variant and mix it with steamed rice and you are off to a tasty mid-day (or could be end-day) treat. We also made variants that are reminiscent of home-cooked meals with Asian flavors, making it convenient for you to relive your childhood moments of eating food lovingly prepared by your mother. In Christa Tuna, we are not just packaging fish, we made sure that the canned tuna you eat reminds you of good times and good food.

High-protein, low-calorie food
News about tuna containing high mercury content have circulated online and offline for years now. The key here is to understand what kind of tuna is in your can. The Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), with offices in the US and China, notes that there are two main kinds of canned tuna: chunk light and solid or chunk white (albacore). EDF says all canned white tuna is albacore. Its mercury levels are almost three times higher than the smaller skipjack tuna, used in most canned light tuna products. Christa Tuna has a Tongol tuna variant which is a smaller fish compared to albacore and blue fin, which means that it has negligible levels of mercury.

Despite the bad rap it has been getting, it cannot be denied that tuna is a high-protein, low-calorie food that is perfect for those who are trying to lose weight coupled with a healthier diet.

Versatile food choice
A can of Christa Tuna Chunk in Vegetable Oil or our Tongol tuna variant can be mixed with other ingredients to make extraordinary dishes. Canned tuna is a versatile food ingredient that can be transformed into delicious meals. Pizza, pasta, sushi, salad, dips, sandwich fillings… name it, your canned tuna can do it. It can be easily prepared too, in just a matter of minutes, and can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch, dinner or mid-day snack. Take your happy pick!
