Default best tasting tuna?

I understand the mercury risks of tuna, but I still believe that it's
probably ok in moderation. It's a great source of lean protein... What I
want to know is, which type/brand of tuna tastes the best? Specifically,
I'm looking at Starkist lemon pepper tuna fillet in the pouch, and the
Starkist chunk tuna in pouch in flavors such as hikory and sweet & spicy.
And when it comes to the canned stuff, which tends to be the most palatable?

Oh, I love those! Also the salmon fillets available from other
companies. For the Starkist Tuna fillets, try the "lightly seasoned".
The chunk tunas I use in sandwiches - no mayo.

And when it comes to the canned stuff, which tends to be the most palatable?

Betsy,

I can only offer up Bumble-Bee Low-Sodium solid white albacore, add some
fine chopped celery, some Trader Joe's low-fat mayonaise, pepper to taste
and apply onto (the then) Trader Joe's no-sodium whole wheat bread,
toasted, with lettuce and that's fine dining. Serve open-faced to cut
back on calories and other negative nutrients.

Can you tell that I have no taste? Add some low-fat cheese if you like to
live dangerously. Like The Historian and I do.

Andy

I buy the stuff packed in water, so I know there are no trans fat oils
included. After I slop on a bunch of mayo, the tuna all tastes about the
same to me.

I don't get the seasoned or flavored ones because the seasonings are usually
sugar based. I get the light tuna in a pouch which is just fine plain,
mixed with a little balsamic vinegar and fat free cottage cheese or even fat
free mayo, mrs. dash and a touch of dijon mustard wrapped in a whole wheat
tortilla.

The only brand I'll buy anymore is Trader Joe's, because it's the only
one I can find that doesn't have hydrolyzed soy protein added.

I used to can my own, but TJ's tastes fine to me.

Bumble Bee albacore is best if they sell it in your town, I have to stock up
on it when I go to the next largest city to me. But overall I will buy any
brand but only albacore and I also love the tuna in the pouches, it is the
dryest and best for making salads out of IMO.

I think the pouched tuna is by far the best, but I think the flavors
are pretty strong. I usually mix the flavored with a regular pouch to
dilute. I visit several grocery stores, so I don't always buy the same
brand, but I always by Albacore even in the cans. It always seem to be
a higher quality. I have heard good things about BumbleBee, but the
first time I ate it I got sick, so I can't eat it anymore.

I like the pouches best... but the unflavored ones. As far as tuna goes,
the worst thing you can do is to buy cheap.... you might as well buy cat
food then.
