The tuna that helps preserving health
Innovative, differentiated and with great added value, Tuna Functional®, within a healthy lifestyle and a varied and balanced diet, is a food proposal that helps to achieve a general state of good health.
Tuna Functional® is a scientifically tested canned tuna which boosts the immune system, health preservation and well-being.
Enriched with omega-3 fatty acids, essential to the body, Tuna Functional® is effective in providing eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and docosahexaenoic (DHA) fatty acids, which benefit metabolic functions, such as blood pressure regulation and normal heart activity. These bioactive compounds also play a key role in promoting normal brain function and maintaining normal vision.
The consumption of at least 2 cans of Tuna Functional®/week, in the eating habits, helps to strengthen the presence of essential fatty acids, which our body does not have the ability to synthesize and can only be obtained through food or supplementation.
The intake of the entire contents of the can (tuna and topping sauce) is essential for the consumer to obtain all the desired benefits.
Developed by the Ramirez Nutritional Centre (CENUTRA), Tuna Functional® was scientifically tested with the collaboration of the Faculty of Biotechnology of the Portuguese Catholic University (ESB) and the Centre for Health Technology and Services (CINTESIS), at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Oporto (FMUP). This multidisciplinary team of researchers has proven the bioavailability (the degree to which a substance is absorbed and becomes available for use at the site of action) of omega-3 fatty acids in this canned functional tuna.
