How’s the canned tuna?

Canned tuna is indispensable for the preparation of many delicious dishes. In addition, it is also rich in protein. On the contrary, it contains few fats and carbohydrates – it is therefore suitable for diets and for supporting muscle growth.

Canned tuna contains a lot of omega-2 fatty acids, which eliminates many inflammations in the body and supports the proper functioning of the brain and immune system.

One can of tuna contains about 20g of protein and only one gram of fat. It contains the recommended daily dose of selenium and contains iodine, phosphorus, magnesium, iron and vitamins A, D and B. Tuna with oil is slightly higher in calories and more fatty. Therefore, choose tuna in its own juice or possibly in olive oil.
