brine is just salty water used to preserve things for a longer amount of time than it would survive normally.

not sure about why people may have said it must be packed in water though.

Tuna in water is recommended as opposed to it being packed in oil.
Brine is salty water. This may increase your sodium intake a bit.

when it's packed in oil, the oil essentially adds a bunch of fat calories to your tuna meal, because you're just not gonna get all of it out of the tuna

water=no calories added

get it?

personally I like the water-packed taste better anyway

Actually, it can increase your sodium intake drastically. Unless you feel the need for this extra sodium in your diet, it is wise to rinse the tuna under water a couple of times before eating it.

i find if you dont do that, it ends up sloppy and not as appetising, i never eat tuna with the brine.
