View Full Version : Looking for best Tuna

04-08-2004, 05:52 PM
Don't really eat a lot of tuna, but going to start to. Any suggestions on the best brand / kind, when it comes to nutritional value, price, and taste?

Starkist in oil tends to taste the best, but Costco has the cheapest I've found.

does it matter much nutritional wise if its in water or oil ?

white albacore or chunk light mixed in some rice and seasoned is good enough for me. any brand really in spring water

tastes better in oil.. but its too high in fat.. :( if u eat 4 cans a day thats 60g of fat just from tuna if you get it in oil...

i just eat it in water... go to sams club and its 4 bux for 10 cans of starkist in water...

pretty good deal

oil taste the same as water id go for the water less calories and fat. any type of tuna will do i go for the cheap light tuna heres a tip -coook it with PAM and add some tomatoes cilantro some italian fat free dressing and lemon peper seasoning and at the end 2 tbs of mayonaise (fat free) oh man oh man the best tuna out there..u can eat it with 5 whole wheat crackers in total the caloreis breakdown like this 252 calories 4 fat 15 carbs 39 protein

I like Kroger's better than Starkist as far as taste....that may be something that 70% of the country can't experience though, I know grocery stores are fairly local.

If the taste makes you gag then grab some canned chicken....although I have problems with my dog trying to steal it.

The cheap walmart brand is superior to starkist. It contains much much less sodium and tastes just as good if not better. It is also cheaper. I never purchase starkist, even when it is on sale for this reason. I rinse out my tuna anyways but I figure there is less to rinse out and less sodium is left in the tuna.
