When I weighed out a can of tuna I usually get around 2.8 ounces of ACTUAL tuna (even though the can says "2" two-ounce servings per can. I've had 4 cans of tuna today. Label says that should be 104g protein. From my weighings I got only 69g. I think I've been short-changing myself. Can this be right?

If it is I'm sticking with them good old-fashioned chickens.

I have a can here, says serving size is 1/2 a can @ 60g....the weight on the can says 170g..and it specifies 'drained weight' 120g. So maybe your can takes liquid into account, as part of the serving.



I've never thought about it til now though.

What does the entire can, with tuna and liquid weigh? Wouldnt be surprised if it was 4 ounces. I would laugh and than write someone a nasty letter.

my (supposed) 4oz of drained tuna per can comes out to a tad over 3 when ive weighed it
Consequently if I dont weigh it, I count it as 3 and 1/3 oz instead of 4
