Fish-free vegan ‘tuna’ in the can created by Israeli company

Vgarden, the developer of plant-based alternatives including nuggets, cheeses, and spreads, claims its new tuna analog has the same appearance, texture, and flavor as the canned kitchen staple.

The company says that, unlike real tuna, it does not contain toxic metals, microplastics, or other ocean pollutants.

Tuna is the world’s most consumed fish, according to the UN, and the global market for it is expected to grow from $41 billion in 2022 to $49 billion in 2029.
“Tinned tuna has a very distinct flaky, yet moist and chewy texture, with a powerful fresh-from-the-sea aroma,” said Ilan Adut, CEO of Vgarden.
“Our new tuna-like product is clean-label, scalable, affordable, and sustainable. It also matches tuna as much as possible in nutritional value.”
Aquaculture and overfishing have had a devastating and has put several species, such as the yellowfin and the Atlantic Bluefin, on the edge of extinction.
