Oil and water don’t mix
What’s the major difference between canned tuna packed in oil versus canned tuna packed in water? Canned tuna packed in oil tends to have a moister texture compared to tuna packed in water. However, tuna packed in water possesses less fat per serving. Flavors may be the same, but the feel in the mouth will not feel the same. Sensitive palettes and tuna lovers will notice the difference while biting into any dish calling for canned tuna. We recommend tuna packed in water if you’re counting calories or adhering to a diet.
