Hi I have researched this but can't find anything consistent. I believe risks shouldn't always be taken. I was once keen on eating raw oysters and clams but once I read even HEALTHY people can die from that virus it really makes you step back... (more)

Just as the title says. People talk about it, but I've never heard of people developing symptoms, or being diagnosed with mercury toxicity or anything like that. To me it seems like a bunch of scary hearsay, honestly. Prove me wrong. As it... (more)

My naturopath is really, really concerned about heavy metals toxicity from things like mercury and lead. He doesn't want me eating any farmed fish. He studied under Dr. Crinnion - here's some stuff I pulled from his website, drcrinnion.com on... (more)

I've been opposed to eating seafood my whole life. Not for a particularly good reason either; my dad didn't eat it, I was a daddy's girl, so I didn't either. As my Primal journey is progressing and I've learned that I like a lot of things I... (more)

Eeew, tuna from a can... Fish is quite diverse. Try sushi. Try baked salmon. Try some oily fish (like mackerel), try some white fish (like cod), try different things. High-grade tuna should be eaten as sashimi :-)

the tuna I get (every brand in my stores has it, and the one brand I found without it is double the price per tin) is "tuna, vegetable broth, salt" and the can says allergen warning: contains soy. is this a big deal for paleo? i know rob wolf... (more)

Natural Sea tuna has only tuna and water, either salted or no salt added. The Big Tuna brands-Bumble Bee, chicken of the Sea- add soy, broth and preservatives to give their tuna flavor, and add less to the the can. if you want TUNA get Natural... (more)

So, I've been Paleo since August or so, but not super strict or anything because I'm a broke college student on a budget and can't exactly afford grass-fed all the time. Anyways, I just started Whole30 three days ago and I've been eating tuna and... (more)

Hi Guys, Just wondering what you prefer with regards to canned tuna? Albacore, Yellowfin, or Skipjack (last 2 are known as light tuna i believe). I know that albacore has more omega 3s, but is higher in mercury generally. However some chunk... (more)

BUT most canned tuna contains soy. The only one I've found that didn't have soy listed was StarKist low sodium.

are tuna dying out? are they going extinct ? overfishing is happening with a lot of fish, but thats not the question. the question is this: if mercury poisoning were a problem, then wouldn't the tuna be affected in a massive way. Frogs are... (more)

Important: is it BPA free? That is the part I am most willing to pay for. I buy a gorgeous smoked local canned tuna as a treat, and there is a huge taste in texture/flavour even with their un-smoked. The flesh tastes "meat-ier" to me, and it just... (more)

I've had it many times. I enjoy it grilled, dressed lightly with soy sauce and lemon...most delicious!

Hello Everyone. I am just curious in asking how many of us paleo folks over in the UK buy food from regular supermarkets, such as tesco, coop, etc. I am mainly wondering if people buy any store bought soups that are filled with good ingredients... (more)

A lot depends on the brand of canned tuna you are buying, since that determines the canning process. Tuna are initially frozen (especially if the vessel is far out at sea), then gutted and pre-cooked for 45 minutes to three hours. The fish are... (more)

Long-time lurker, first time poster! I'm looking for canned tuna, tested to be BPA-free. There are some places in the US that sell it, but I'd rather buy from Europe to save on shipping and customs, duties, VAT, and overall hassle. I live in... (more)

If you are buying your canned fish at Trader Joe's then you are probably all set. Word is that all their fish is in BPA-free cans.

I've been supplementing my canned sardine intake with some canned tuna - primarily for variety, but also on a lark to see if it also doesn't taste as bad as I had feared. Good news on that front, it's actually quite palatable! However I'm... (more)

Tuna isn't an oily fish*, it's pretty much by definition low fat, so on the one hand, these figures aren't worrying, but tuna certainly isn't a reasonable source for fish oil. A raw, fresh fillet of skipjack tuna (200g) is only going to contain... (more)

Canned fish is controversial , but remains popular among paleo enthusiasts, including Mark Sisson, especially canned salmon. Also, canned tomato products are popular. Many are attracted to the convenience of ready-to-eat canned foods, especially... (more)

I remember always being told, that once you open the can you either eat all right away or move the things to some other, non-metal, container. The moment oxygen gets in it begins interacting very fast with the metal and food inside. Personally I... (more)
