White tuna in olive oil
White tuna (Thunnis Alalunga) is one of the most appreciated tuna in the Cantabrian sea. Traditionally fished in the Bay of Biscay, caught individually by rod.
Characteristics of white tuna
When the tuna arrives at the factory, we immediately proceed to its preparation, separating the head and loins. Depending on the size of the catches, they will be cooked in brine for different lengths of time. Experience has taught us how to best manage timing and salt concentrations to obtain a product of the highest quality, a professional secret that has been kept for generations.
After a cooling process we clean the skin and bones before packaging the different formats, then we add the best quality oil and seal them. Each jar is then sterilized, a process similar to a water bath that eliminates any bacteria. Finally, we store the canned product for a period of about two years, which allows the tuna meat to absorb the flavors of the oil, making it a juicy product with an excellent taste.
Preservation of white tuna
This product is a preserve and as such does not need to be refrigerated during the distribution or storage process. However, it must be kept cool and dry. It is not recommended to store them near heat emitting points such as motors or heaters, nor near humid spaces. Expiration 5 years.
