Tuna Review: Target Market Pantry Solid White Albacore in Water
12 ounce can of Dolphin Safe
$2.79 on SALE $1.99 (Hawaii)
This is a good deal for the price. Most of the 12 ounce cans of tuna from the “Big” markets are of lesser quality compared to your name brands. So far this is one is good quality. Name brands prices run any where from $5.99 to $14.99 for a 12 ounce can. I am sure it is cheaper for other states.
“Hey my tuna tastes like Vegetables”…Just kidding..
Not sure why the ingredients include vegetable brooth when it says in water? I thought we wanted it to taste like tuna?
Ingredients vary from manufacture. This can contains: Albacore Tuna, Water, Vegetable Broth, Salt, Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate. May also contain Bones.
It does not say what country it was processed or caught in. Mystery fish are becoming more prevalent in our society. Not all Tuna is alike… It does say it CONTAINS TUNA… Hahahahaha. Actually I thought it was a very good tuna for the price.
There are 3 servings per can. I add pickles and Mayo so I get more like 5 servings… I love sweet gherkin pickles. OOohhhh So Yummy!! Ok back to the facts.
90 Calories per serving when drained. A Healthy 1/3 cup of Tuna per serving.
Wow I did not realize tuna had Cholesterol. Each serving of this Tuna has 30 mg. I thought we ate tuna to lower our Cholesterial? Now I am confused.
It says it only has 1 Gram of Fat. Which fat? It does not say. But you do get a touch of Potassium 200mg, Vitamin D 1.1 mcg and Iron 0.4mg.
Sodium is at 280mg. No Carbs, No Fiber, No sugars and No Added Sugars.
Great News 19 grams of Protein and 220 mg per serving of DHA & EPA OMEGA-3 are present.
The good thing with Target’s Brand, Market Pantry Solid White Albacore Tuna is that there is no Soy added. Bumble Bee Tuna adds Soy and is about $4 more a can here.
If you are adding Mayo and Or Pickles get the nutritional information from the labels on the containers and watch those calories bump up. Don’t forget the bread, crackers or what ever vessel your delivery will be to your mouth has to be counted. Slimmest delivery system is a spoon… Zero calories.
