Experience the deliciously pure and healthy taste of San Miguel Del Mar Tuna

Staying at home for the past few months has challenged many to experiment in the kitchen, whipping up different recipes they can think of or following online trends, with an eye on eating healthy food.

Some, however, think of eating healthy as lacking in taste or the ability to make us full, opting instead to choose convenient food options amid the perception that nutritional meals require time, dedication, and ingredients with limited availability to prepare.

Luckily, San Miguel Foods, one of the leading food companies well-known in providing a diverse selection of food products defined by quality, taste, and safety, has launched its newest offering perfect for those looking to make cleaner, healthier food choices: San Miguel Del Mar Tuna.

The company’s first entry to the canned tuna category, San Miguel Del Mar stands out from other brands as it is made from 100 percent pure tuna chunks, with no extenders and no preservatives.

Available in two variants, Chunks in Vegetable Oil and Chunks in Water, San Miguel Del Mar Tuna is rich in Omega 3, which helps prevent and manage heart disease, and protein, which is crucial for our bodies to grow, repair tissue, create essential hormones and enzymes, and support our immune systems.

“We’re really excited to bring San Miguel Del Mar to the market because it delivers delicious and quality, honest-to-goodness pure and meaty tuna chunks with no extenders and preservatives,” said Hasmine Du, AVP and Marketing Manager for San Miguel Foods.

To help you get started on exciting your palate in an easy and healthy way, San Miguel Del Mar partnered with three personalities known for creating their own simply delicious recipes: homecook and writer Steph Zubiri, and established chefs Ed Bugia and Happy Ongpauco-Tiu.

Using San Miguel Del Mar Tuna – offered in an 185g easy-to-open can for only P61 – each of them created dishes to give everyone an effortlessly nutritious meal, no matter the time of the day.
