    Per 100 gm has 27 gm protein

    So times it by 1.5 -> 150gm drained = 27 * 1.5 = 40.5gm protein

    Why would you ask if you read the back of the can? Most i've seen have between 22-30 grams. Depends on the brand. Only they know what quality of fish they actually put in your can
    But that's just my opinion... Don't get all BUTTHURT if you don't like that opinion.

    You can't be serious....

    I don't mean to be a dick, but you're reading the label...and that's just basic math!

    150g drained weight / 100g drained serving = 1.5 servings.

    1.5 servings x 27g protein per serving = 40.5g protein per can
