Solid White in water works best for me. I usually but Walmart brand unless SK or COS has a sale but one of the "premium" brands was like mush last time I bought it. I don't remember which one.

Cottage cheese has become a low quality mushy substance unless you buy organic and now tuna (I haven't tried canned tuna for awhile). It appears the manufacturer's are taking cheap shortcuts for less quality and more profits.

Just like with pet foods, it's like we have to keep paying higher and higher prices just to sustain the level of quality we used to enjoy as a matter of course. That's not cool!

I have bought Bumble Bee Wild Caught Solid White Tuna packed in water for years.
It was always excellent...until recently....I can hardly eat the stuff any more. It looks, smells and tastes "off" any more.

There was a thread about tuna not long ago. You might find some good suggestions.

Tuna packed in oil

BTW, please don't feed the tuna to your cats. It really isn't good for them. If you got stuck with a brand you dislike, donate the unused cans to a food pantry.

I've stopped buying canned tuna. I was buying the Costco solid albacore that used to be very nice, but it is a bit expensive and the last packages I've bought, several cans contained grated tuna, not solid, and there was dark tuna in some of the cans, and a couple of cans of the dark grated tuna stank. I'm not paying that high price to get nasty dark grated tuna.

I used to buy frozen tilapia fillets. Steam one of those and mix it into "tuna" salad and it is quite good. But I had to give that up, too, because I can no longer find any tilapia that doesn't come from China.

Albacore is a very low grade tuna, its the advertising that makes folks think it is top grade. Try some yellowfin packed in olive oil, especially from Spain or Italy.

I would note, as well, that there is no such thing as "premium" canned chicken. Canned chicken is NASTY. I can always tell when they're using it. Chicken is cheap. Use actual chicken, not the brined/water soaked stuff in a can.

(the link is for 6 cans each of canned tuna and canned chicken)

Yeah, but it is 8 cans of tuna and 6 cans of chicken breast, almost 13 pounds and free shipping.

It's way above the Costco price.

Here is 3 cans for $10. I'm sure the OP can look around at all the options
