Hi, read the nutritional info on a can of tuna and saw that per 55g serving there is 1g of fat and 13g of protein. I assume theres a bunch of vitamins and minerals in it but there has to be something else to make up for the other 41g in it.

1 can of tuna = 2.5 servings.

Chunk light Tuna in water
60 x 2.5 = 150 calories
13 x 2.5 = 32.5g protien
.5 x 2.5 = 1.25g fat.

(is it sad that i just did that from memory?)

I don't know where you are getting the 55g serving from. If so, it is most likely the water that it is packed in.

Most food is full of water - just like our bodies, meat = mostly water, fish = mostly water, fruit = mostly water etc etc etc.
