Good Catch products evoke the experience of real seafood thanks to legumes and algae oil. Yes, that’s it — the base ingredients for all of our products. Our proprietary six-legume blend of peas, chickpeas, lentils, soy, fava beans and navy beans delivers protein and a texture that resembles the exact flakiness of seafood. Algae oil provides seafood flavor and omega-3 DHA. Read on to learn more.
TEXTURE & PROTEIN
Legumes are plants that belong to the Fabaceae or Leguminosae family, which produce edible high-protein seeds inside their pods. The legume family includes peas, lentils and beans, and they’re one of the world's oldest cultivated crops.
We chose our exclusive six-legume blend of peas, chickpeas, lentils, soy, fava beans and navy beans because they’re the most popular legumes, and they play well together. And bingo! We found these legumes, when blended in the perfect proprietary ratios, render an amazing texture resembling the exact flakiness of seafood.
Aside from tasting great, legumes are nutritional powerhouses. They are:
• Packed with protein
• Full of dietary fiber and minerals
• Very low in fat
Bonus: Mixing these six legumes makes Good Catch easier to digest rather than using any single legume because too much of only one ingredient can cause digestive issues. We also cook our legume protein extracts until they’re well done, leaving lectins harmless, so there’s no worries about stomach discomfort.
In the end, our six-legume blend is all about taste, texture and nutrition.
ALGAE OIL FOR
SEAFOOD FLAVOR & OMEGA-3 DHA
Our chefs and seasoned R&D team worked hard searching for a special plant that embodies that certain je ne sais quoi flavor of fine seafood. Where else to look but the sea, where they found their dream ingredient: algae oil, extracted from sea algae. Also known as algal oil, it offers the primary note in our authentic taste profile. It also brings the gift of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), a prized essential omega-3 fatty acid found in fish oils, which fish absorb when they consume microalgae.
Our bodies crave omega-3s because they’re crucial to our wellbeing. They bolster our hearts, eyes, brains and nervous systems. Because we can’t make omega-3s ourselves, we need to choose from the limited food sources that offer them — like Good Catch products. More good news: Good Catch sources pure DHA from the beginning of the food chain, eliminating toxic levels of contaminants.
