How to Differ Canned Tuna Flakes in Vegetable Oil or in Water

If we ever want to make dish using canned tuna flakes in vegetable oil, then we should know more information about this product. Especially since many canned tuna products are presented in the market by the factories. We want to use canned tuna flakes in our dish because this product is very versatile thus many dishes can be made using the same ingredient. This is the change that is taken by the factories to create many kinds of canned tuna flakes products and sold it. But we should not be afraid since most of those factories are only making the same products but sold it using different brand.


Difference of Canned Tuna Flakes in Vegetable Oil vs. WaterActually all of those factories are only making two categories of canned tuna flakes products, thus it is actually very easy to differentiate them. First category is the light canned tuna flakes product while the second category is the white canned tuna flakes. Now let us learn about how to differentiate those two categories.
1.      Liquid
As we all know that all canned tuna flakes product is using special liquid inside the can to immerse the flakes. The light canned tuna flakes is actually canned tuna flakes in water which uses water as the liquid to immerse the flakes. Meanwhile the white canned tuna flakes is actually canned tuna flakes in vegetable oil which uses vegetable oil as the liquid to immerse the flakes. And since the flakes on white canned tuna flakes category is immerse inside vegetable oil, and then it will have more calories and fat content compared to the light canned tuna flakes category.
2.      Tuna species
We might never think about this, but actually canned tuna flakes products are made using different tuna species. The light canned tuna flakes category is made using either skipjack tuna species or yellowfin tuna species. But the white canned tuna flakes in vegetable oil category are only made using albacore tuna species.
3.      Flakes color
When we open the can, then we can see that the flakes color inside is actually have very different flakes color. The light canned tuna flakes category has dark red color flakes with some tan tint. The white canned tuna flakes in vegetable oil category have white color flakes with some pink tint. This type of flakes color is actually considered to be best for canned tuna flakes.
4.      Taste and consistency
Of course, when we try those canned tuna flakes categories, they will also have different taste and consistency. The light canned tuna flakes category has stronger taste with soft consistency, these tuna flakes will reminds you to chicken thighs flakes. Meanwhile for white canned tuna flakes in vegetable oil categories have milder taste with firm consistency; these tuna flakes will reminds you to chicken breast flakes. Actually more people love the taste and consistency that white canned tuna flakes have, this is why more factories also make this canned tuna flakes categories to be sold.
5.      Nutrition content
Since both canned tuna flakes categories are made using tuna fish, then both categories will also contain similar nutrition. Especially for the omega 3 nutrition which search by many people that want to make dish using canned tuna flakes. The reason is because we already know that this unsaturated fat is good for body development, growth and brain. But among both canned tuna flakes categories, then white canned tuna flakes category have more omega 3 content.
If we decide to make dish using white canned tuna flakes in vegetable oil, then we should remember to limit it only one portion dish for every two week because of mercury content.
