28 Jul The Taste of Tuna in Water vs. Tuna in Olive Oil
Water or olive oil? When it comes to Wild Selections® Solid White Albacore, they’re both great options. Both contain only a few quality, wholesome ingredients and boast 13 grams of protein per serving to help build lean muscle and curb hunger. Both are also MSC certified sustainable and Non-GMO Project verified. So, how do you choose between tuna in oil vs. tuna in water during your next trip to the grocery store?
The decision really comes down to taste.
If you prefer tuna is that is firm and full of that delicious tuna flavor, we recommend tuna in water. When making recipes like traditional tuna salad with rich mayonnaise, some people prefer the simplicity and dryness of tuna packed in water because of the heaviness and moisture of the condiment involved.
Some tuna lovers prefer the olive oil option because it’s tender by nature, making it tasty to eat right out of the can as a snack. Its more moist than tuna packed in water, which makes it a great topper for fresh salads. Its delicate flavor is perfect for complementing, not overpowering, the other ingredients in your dishes.
For traditional tuna salad without the mayo, try Wild Selections® Solid White Albacore in Olive Oil combined with a little extra oil, a pinch of salt and pepper, and fresh lemon juice. Yum! Whichever Wild Selections® product you choose, you’ll always know you’re purchasing a premium can of certified sustainable seafood. Browse our complete selection of tuna products.
