Which is absorbed more quickly and which has higher RV (or something like that)?

Thanks

I think you're referring to BV - Biologic value.

Tuna ~ 83
Chicken ~ 79

What's so important about BV? Never heard of that.

If you're eating as much protein as you should, nothing.

I go for Tuna, since it has a small amount of omega 3 fatty acids.

Surely 34+g per meal (6meals) and 50g for breakfast, enough for the day?

problem with tuna is the recent issues concerning to much freaking mercury in the fish - that's definitely limited my intake (dammit!).

There's plenty of controversy over this issue, and I'm not here to start a flamewar, but I've definitely cut back my tuna intake, just to be safe. I've some chemistry background, and I know what mercury does... :-(

My point is simply that it's silly to worry about the exact BVs of tuna vs. chicken. Both are clearly high quality proteins. I would not recommend one over the other but both as dietary variety is important.

Tuna makes my brain sad.

how long can tuna be stored in the fridge after it's opened?

Why does Tuna take so much effort to chew and why is it so cheap compared to Pink Salmon?
