Yes, we know the debate rages on at to whether eating tuna during pregnancy is fine for the baby. And while most moms we know tend to play it safe and skip the tuna anyway, with Safe Catch Foods, now you don’t have to. Safe Catch tests every single fish used to make their tuna, at a limit a whopping 10 times stricter than the FDA’s. (For those who want to know the numbers, you can find them by clicking on Safe Catch’s FAQ page here.) If a fish doesn’t pass the test, the brand simply doesn’t buy it. No excess mercury happening here.
Not only are the mercury levels of Safe Catch usually 25 times lower than your average canned tuna, it’s really tasty too. With flavours like cajun, chili lime, garlic herb, habanero mint and tandoori, there’s something for everyone. Just remember to mind your quantities.
Ahi tuna nachos anyone?
