Atlantic Natural Foods reformulated TUNO seafood alternative. In an effort to continue disrupting the industry and effecting change for people and planet, Atlantic Natural Foods, LLC (ANF), leading manufacturer of better-for-you, shelf-stable foods, launched its newly reformulated TUNO™ seafood alternative varieties, as well as refreshed packaging for its complete line of shelf-stable, plant-based Loma Linda® Meal Starters and Solutions, at Natural Products Expo East 2021. The new innovations were spotlighted at the natural industry trade event, held September 22-25 in Philadelphia.

“As the number of consumers seeking plant-based versions of their favourite foods continues to grow, it is our responsibility to provide delicious, sustainably sourced options that continue to evolve with their needs and lifestyle,” said Doug Hines, founder and chairman of Atlantic Natural Foods. “We have addressed this increasing demand by working to improve the balance of flakiness and density for our TUNO varieties, further enabling us to work toward our goal of providing healthy, affordable and tasty protein alternatives on a global scale.”

In fall 2018, ANF disrupted the industry with the launch of their Loma Linda brand foods TUNO and Ready to Eat plant based meals – the first-ever shelf-stable, plant-based foods line value-priced for all cultures and lifestyles. The recent reformulation of the protein-rich TUNO varieties aims to provide an experience closer to that of conventional tuna, yet offering plant-based ingredients and omega-3s. The new varieties feature a more perfected texture, which incorporates seaweed and DHA algal oil to capture the distinctive tuna-like flavour.

“Our commitment to sustainable and culturally inspired foods make our meals enjoyable for the consumer and better for the planet,” states Laura Lapp, brand innovation manager at Atlantic Natural Foods. “The new-and-improved Loma Linda packaging better represents this commitment, along with the shelf-stable nature and sustainable, ethical sourcing of our products.”

Beyond TUNO, Loma Linda’s line of shelf-stable, plant-based Meal Starters and Solutions are gluten-free, non-GMO, packed with 7g-11g of protein and can be ready in just 60 seconds in the microwave. The brand has recently expanded this line with its newest varieties, including Greek Bowl, Hawaiian Bowl and Ultimate Vegetarian Chili.
