Canned Mackerel or Tuna

rreorarreora Posts: 178C-Class
Meron ba sa inyo sinasama ang canned mackerel sa diet nila?

Sa isang lata kasi meron syang:
160 calories
2 carbs
6 fat
26 protein
440 sodium

compared sa tuna solid in oil na:
calories 394
carbs 3
fat 23
protein 39
sodium 1,214

in water:
calories 180
carbs 0
fat 0
protein 39
sodium 1,530

In my opinion, mas ok yun mackerel price wise and nutrition.

55 yun premium tuna
19 lang ata bili ko sa mackerel.

How about mercury content? Sabi low in mercury daw ang mackerel.

What you think guys?

    Both are good source of protein and healthy fats.
    Preference mo na lang yan.

    FWIW, may added benefit ang mackerel in tomato sauce. May lycopene yan. Alternate mo na lang para hindi mag-sawa.

    Ok na ako sa Natural oil lang. Nireplace ko na yun tuna ko ng mackerel starting today.
    Mas masarap sya in my opinion, medyo may lasang taba (medyo mahilig ako sa matatabang lasa). haha

    Advantage ng tuna for me is flexibility, pede mo siyang gawing sandwich, isama sa salad and pasta, i-ulam etc. Unless meron ng Mackerel in water pedeng alternative for tuna.

    You guys should try corned tuna. Pwedeng kainin every day. Gisa lang ng madaming bawang at sibuyas talo talo na. Lalo na yung chili.

    Yun nga lang. Ang ginagawa ko na lang eh bawas ng sodium sa iba.

    ^ we are specifically talking about tuna/mackerel - in cans here.

    so ok lang pla magkakaen lagi - My answer is NO, I'll still go for the fresh fish in the market. Quality and quantity wise mas ok sila.

    canned foods should always be the last option. As much as possible NO.

    Kung mag canned tuna kayo mas ok yung "in water" lang.

    ah water yung brine... kaya pala ang lansa ng lasa hehehe nilagyan ko ng cayenne pepper para mawala lansa pero ang lansa pa din hehehe

    Pag in water ang ginagamit ko, I make sure to drain the water. Mataas ang sodium content nun. I just add my own seasoning. Konti salt lang, black pepper at cayenne pepper.

    years ago, one of my favorite tuna was century red label in oil or spanish style, sometimes in water. before yung price was around 26-29 pesos per can.after several years i went back to gym, and when i look at the current price i was a bit shock tumaas masyado yung price naging 51-52 pesos. to cut my story short, found a good alternative brand, from shop wise, yung brand is sure buy and it cost 37pesos. same amount of protein (century chunks in oil), the other great thing is the sodium content is like 3-4 times less than century.

    nakita ko yung in brine ng century and i expect na mataas ang sodium niya kesa sa ibang type na tuna nila pero nagulat ako halos magkaka pareho lang sila ng sodium concent di nagkakalayo. maganda padin ang luto ni nanay na fresh from talipapa.
