Gathered Foods, the Austin, Texas-based
parent company of Good Catch, tinkered
for nearly two years prior to landing on a
combination of beans, peas and lentils that
captured the flakiness of canned tuna.
" We launched around the time
Impossible and Beyond were really taking
off, and we knew the bar was set high by
the consumer when it comes to taste and
cooking experience of alternatives on the
market, " said Chad Sarno, co-founder and
chief culinary officer of Gathered Foods.
" Only after we nailed texture, we started
looking at the different attributes when it
came to functionality and taste. "
Flavored with spices and seaweed,
the seafood substitutes are rich in protein
and beneficial fats, Mr. Sarno said. They
also, notably, lack a fishy scent, which
consumer polling revealed as a downside
of traditional tuna, Mr. Sarno said.
" We focused on clean ingredients and
diversifying our protein, " he said. " Our
tuna on the market has over 20 grams
of protein per serving, which is right up
there with albacore. "
