I have a john west tuna chunks in brine 95g NET, on the nutrition at the back it says 1 serving of 65g, and has the nutrition for that, but thats still missing 30g of it, theirs also " for every 100g" but neither of these are 95g.

are their any reasons why the serving is so much lower then 95g? or should i just ignore that all and calculate it as if it was 95g with the nturition values of 65g

does it have to do anything with it been brine?

Aha I forgot you aussie brahs woke up around now. It's a americano Jessica Simpson joke.

The can will say (x)grams per serving and then say (x) servings per container, just do the math

65g might be the drained weight, because it's brine there is that water weight as well

I just count it as 100 calories & 22.5g of protein for the 95g can's. Done that for months now.

For comparison...

I count chicken breast as 115 calories for 100g raw
I count extra lean beef as 130 calories per 100g raw
I count lean kangaroo as 95 calories per 100g raw

Alright thanks, one more question.

A whole chicken, cooked from iga/coles etc.

the medium sized one thats usually about 10 bux, if i was to only eat the breast like a wasteful **** and not bother with the legs/underneath or skin or bones, what's the average nutrition of that?

If it says the serving size of the tuna is 65g, and the servings per package is only 1 then that means its the drained portion (the other weight is water).
