This article is an advertisement for a vegan tuna alternative made from cooking down tomatoes. It seems that by cooking down Roma tomatoes and adding in soy sauce and other ingredients the company has come up with something extremely close to the taste and texture of real tuna. It is available for purchase at whole foods and costs around $12 a pack, which seems similar to the price of real tuna. Best served in sushi.

Key Takeaways:

  • Whole Foods is offering the products in some stores in New York and Los Angeles.
  • Ahimi made convincing-looking imitation tuna out of vegan ingredients for sushi rolls.
  • The prices are: $11.99 for nigri combination, $8.99 for California rolls.

“Ahimi, a vegan product from Ocean Hugger Foods, mimics raw tuna using cooked Roma tomatoes flavored with umami-laden ingredients like soy sauce and sesame oil.”
