Why You’ll Love Albacore Tuna, 4 Pack
Every week can have a Tuna Tuesday with this bountiful four-pack of premium Wild Planet Albacore Tuna. With a firm texture, clean taste, and rich flavor, wild albacore tuna is delicious however it’s eaten—in a cheesy melt, noodle casserole, or atop a Salad Niçoise.
Each 5 oz. can has only one ingredient: fresh albacore tuna. It’s free of added salt, oil, water, and fillers, which provides a pure, fresh taste, just like catching the fish straight out of the ocean yourself. But in case you’re not up for that challenge, Wild Planet uses sustainable measures to source their supply of tuna, which is lower in mercury than other conventional options.
Before being hand-packed, each tuna steak is cooked just once to retain all of the natural juices that are rich in omega-3 fish oils (so, no need to drain the can). Because of this extra measure, Wild Planet Wild Albacore Tuna not only tastes great, but is good for you, too.
The health benefits of tuna
Not only is seafood a far more sustainable source of protein than options like beef or chicken, but tuna in particular is loaded with protein (more than 30 grams in one can!) and omega-3 fatty acids, and considerably lower in saturated fat content.
Without protein, humans would cease to exist. Protein helps to make up many vital parts of the body, including hair, nails, bones, muscles, cartilage, blood, and skin. It plays a major role in helping the body to heal, contributing to good bone health, increasing muscle mass and strength, and lowering blood pressure and triglycerides. Though the body has natural stores of protein, eating more in your diet goes a long way in contributing to overall health.
A protein-centric meal also makes you feel full and satisfied longer, which leads to less cravings and snacking. For this reason, protein is an important component in managing weight.
Omega-3 fatty acids
In general, people associate fat with something bad. However, there are good types and bad types, and just like protein, the human body could not function without some amount of fat. While it’s smart to stay away from saturated types like lard, fatty beef, butter, cheese, and other dairy products, it’s just as vital to consume a wealth of good omega-3 fatty acids, which support total heart health by lowering triglyceride levels, slowing down the rate at which plaque builds up in arteries, and balancing blood pressure. Each can of Wild Planet Wild Albacore Tuna contains an average of 800 milligrams of EPA and DHA Omega-3’s, leading to it being called a “foodaceutical” by many nutritionists.
Wild Planet Wild Albacore Tuna also has good amounts of iron and potassium and is gluten-free and Paleo-friendly.
Wild Planet provides safe-to-eat seafood
Though fish is incredibly healthy, it also often carries a warning about mercury content. Mercury poisoning is rare but can have devastating effects on the body, leading to a range of neurological malfunctions.
While some species, like swordfish, king mackerel, and tilefish have greater concentrations, the good news is, wild albacore tuna is naturally low in mercury and can be enjoyed regularly for the most part. (Pregnant women, nursing mothers, and young children should limit portions to one serving, or six ounces, per week.)
Cooking with Wild Planet Wild Albacore Tuna
Tuna offers a clean and fresh taste that can be an alternative to meat in plenty of recipes, but it also works well as the main star in many dishes. Here are some creative ideas for how to cook with your next can.
Kitchen Sink Salad
If you have a bunch of leftover greens and veggies from the farmers market, combine them all and make an “everything under the sink” salad. Toss lettuce, kale, spinach, cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots, and anything else you have in a bowl with Wild Planet Wild Albacore Tuna for protein. Top it off with avocado oil and coconut vinegar, and season with pepper, paprika, and ginger for a satisfying and veggie-packed meal.
Love sushi, but wish you could make it at home? Try this super simple recipe that subs in wild albacore tuna for the raw stuff. Roll up the fish in sheets of nori with some wasabi paste, avocado oil mayonnaise, pea shoots, and coconut aminos for the perfect balanced taste. Then, warm up the chopsticks and dig in. With our step-by-step guide, you’ll master the rolling technique in no time and can then experiment with other fillings to become your home’s master sushi chef.
Pasta salad is a staple of many family picnics and summer barbecues, but it also makes a great side dish on any occasion. Start with a quality batch of gluten-free pasta and then stir in some extra virgin olive oil, Greek olives, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, salt, and of course wild albacore tuna. After cooking the pasta, it takes just minutes to prepare.
Here’s a creative take on the good old Sloppy Joe. Instead of using ground beef, open up a can of tuna and mix the contents with tomatoes, cilantro, red onion, lime juice, salt, and hot chili powder. You can either keep it cold or warm it up for a few minutes before loading onto sesame-seed hamburger buns. Pair with some sweet potato fries for a full meal that only tastes indulgent.

Best Tuna Ever!
Best flavor ever! You can really taste the difference in the brand than the other I used to buy. This is SOOO much better for being non-GMO and Preservative free! I'm hooked!
- Carissa McGaha
Great nutrition, omega 3 and great price! I like this brand because the tuna meat is not all mushy and there is no waste.
- Mary Noreen
Tuna has recently had some cautions surrounding it,but we feel confident in the guality of this product.
My family's favorite tuna by far
Try it with tomatoes, onions and vinaigrette
My husband recently returned from visiting our son in Germany and has been recreating the tuna, tomato and onion dish served with olive oil and vinegar that he enjoyed there. Who knew that tuna was such a popular menu item in Berlin! Better than sausage, he says. Because he prepares it several times a week, having canned tuna is a must (we live in the American Midwest). This brand has a fresh taste and firm texture. Packed without any oil, Wild Planet albacore tuna also tastes great right out of the can. Thrive Market's prices are cheaper than our local grocery store.
- Deborah Smith
It's so hard to find canned tuna that doesn't contain soy. This one has a clean ingredient list and tastes great!
Great price, great tuna
The best price I've found on this tuna. My kids love it!
Tuna in Thai Coconut Lemongrass
It was ok. I was looking for a more home-canned tuna taste. This tuna is like all other canned tunas with that tinny taste. I'll try tuna in a jar next.
- Valerie Wagner
Best tuna we've ever had. We get this everything we order. I only wish thrive sold the 6pack that can sometimes be found in stores.
I love this tuna. It is flavorful, it is a tuna steak rather than flakes, there is very little liquid and drains very easy, it is by far the best canned tuna I have ever had. I will never go back to another brand. The other great thing about this tuna is its conservation of marine life and it is wild caught, pole and troll. Thank you so much Thrive for carrying this tuna in your inventory!
Wild planet tuna
This tuna is delicious and eco friendly. My entire family enjoys the unique flavor and I feel good about responsible fishing practices.
- Anne mudrs
This is great tuna. The stuff in the grocery store either tastes like cat food, or has no flavor at all. The Wild Planet trikes a nice balance. I also like the texture, and the fact that the can isn't full of noxious liquid - but still tastes much better than the pouch stuff. It's great.
Love this brand ! An awesome value as well
Great deal, great product
I love saving on the multi-pack! These are great if I need a quick meal or a hefty protein serving for a snack. Perfect with mustard and/or mayo, or even on its own.
Wild Planet rated one of the most trustworthy companies - I feel good about buying from them and think this tuna is far above other brands in taste and content.
Best tasting tuna, ever! And no waste due to too much liquid etc. It's the only tuna I will buy from now on.
Albacore tuna 4 pack
This is the best tuna I've tasted...clean, not fishy tasting. Also, because of the reputation of the brand, I feel it's better for our planet!
- Judy Iorizzo
Yum, and thank you for the easy-open cans! Good price for low-mercury, undamaged and sustainably-caught canned tuna.
Albacore tuna, 4 pack
The best tuna ever!
- Thrive User
Albacore Tuna, 4 pack
I will definitely order this again. No waste of liquids. Total tuna weight. Fresh taste!
Tuna 4 pack
Great tasting, great value
Love this brand and Albacore tuna. great value: better than the supermarket.
Best tasting tuna. Good price too.
We (my cat, dog, and myself) love this tuna. Its great tasting and firm
- De Anna
This tuna is terrific! The texture is more firm than supermarket tuna, but it is moist and flavorful, without being overpowering. This is "dark meat" albacore as opposed the flavorless cardboard you get from the major brands. A real winner! The only thing I'd change... the pull-top can seems like it would be a convenience, but it is hard to manipulate and I would prefer a can I have to use an opener on, but it is far from being a deal-breaker given the quality of the product.

Albcore Tuna, 4 pack
Delicious, fresh taste
- Nancy Brooks
Best canned tuna we have ever had.
Best Tuna in The Market.
This tuna is my new fav. I won't buy any other brand. Everything about it is great: the very fresh taste, the quality, and the quantity.
Great tuna! I keep it on hand all of the time.
This is the best tuna I have ever tasted out of a can.
Remember those cans you would open and out would fall some indescribable mush with a fishy smell? Not this tuna! It is solid, it is recognizable and it tastes wonderful! Plus it is fished responsibly. I don't think I'll be buying any other tuna again.
- Victoria A
Top notch quality
Buying in this pack is less than I've found anywhere. Best cuts and best taste
Taste is good. I eat it with a little bit of mayo mixed in on crackers as a snack.
Will never buy another tuna!
So glad this tuna is available on Thrive! And super affordable! Will never purchase another tuna- mostly due to the responsible way this tuna is caught and packaged. (Thanks Wild Harvest!)
Very good tuna. High quality meat packed tightly....I did not "see" any of the "scraps" that are so prevalent in your typical store bought tuna (I won't mention brand names). Just good, high quality meat!!!
Fresh, sustainable, tasty tuna
Yes, it's a little pricier than your typical grocery store tuna. But, for sustainably caught, FRESH tuna you can feel good about eating, you can't really do better than this. And with Thrive's price on this one (compared to getting it at health food markets), it's totally worth it.
love this product, it is definately worth the price
Excellent in every way.
There is so much meat packed into these cans. I've always thought people were crazy for spending extra for premium canned tuna, but with this you REALLY get your money's worth.
By far the best Tuna hands down..
This is great tuna. The can is filled with tuna not a lot of water. Flavor is great and I even use the water in tuna salad, etc.
Delicious, large chunks with little water. The 4-pack is also a great value
I like this tuna because it is low in mercury and sustainably caught. The taste is very good too.
Love this product
Very good solid tuna. Easily flakes for tuna salad. This makes the best tuna salad using it along with Primal Kitchen's mayo!
- Jamie Ellis
It puts my mind at ease knowing the tuna is as healthy for me as it can be. And it's quite tasty, too!
I love that this is environmentally responsible canned tuna. And the price is right!
Love this Tuna..Yummy
a little dry even though i did not drain as instructed, BUT very good
Meaty and wonderful
Purchased a couple of cans of this and put it on my shelf with other brands. When I opened a can, it made me stop. It was so much meatier and firmer than the other brands. Hardly any water but mostly firm Chunks of Tuna. Best canned tuna that I ever had.
