I think you might be onto something, although I really don't know. The tuna I posted about in #103^^ has no soy added and isn't at all mushy.

I only use the chunk light in packages. It is chunky and not mushy no matter what the brand. Tried albacore and hated it. Cans of tuna have too much water/oil which is why they are mushy.

Wegmans solid white albacore in water in 6 oz can is solid, not mushy. All white, none of those odd brown spots.

The ingredients are: white tuna, water, vegetable broth, salt, sodium pyrophosphate.

The allergen box says: contains fish (tuna)and soy.

How can they not list soy as an ingredient, then? All the other tunas containing soy do.

Its been years since I bought canned tuna - I don't remember the brand - probably COS - made tuna salad, gave the dog and cat their portions. A few hours later went to the bathroom and my tinkle smelled just like tuna.... I've never had that happen - asparagus yes, tuna no. I won't eat it any more... not sure what caused that - but not trying it again.

That labelling is odd. Since the soy is only in the allergen box maybe their tuna is processed in a place where soy is present as when other products have a warning that they're made in a place that uses peanuts. The only way to know for sure is to contact Wegmans headquarters.

I've noticed the white tuna packed in water ( I usually end up with Sam's Club store brand) is more fishy smelling that it used to be. My mom said she rinses it just a little bit after draining water, it really helped. I am going to try the packed in oil another try after reading this thread.

I've thought of trying oil-packed, too, although I try to cut fat and calories. Report back!

I started buying skipjack tuna - not Bumblebee or Starkist or Chicken of the Sea, and I can't remember the brand. But it was good (and quite a bit more expensive than "regular" tuna). Then my store stopped stocking it. Maybe they didn't sell enough of it. I can't go back to "regular" tuna now. I don't like albacore for some reason.

Trader Joe's has skipjack, but I haven't tried it. I like their yellowfin.
