    Canned Solid White Tuna

    Primal Fuel
    I'm day 3 into The PB and I'm already starting to feel better! I went to the grocery store yesterday and was going to buy some solid white canned tuna in water. I started reading the ingredients on the label and I ended up leaving the store with no tuna. I was really confused!

    Of the 3 brands that were available, ALL of them had SOY as an ingredient. I've been staying away from ALL soy products as of lately, because soy is one of the most highly GMO'ed products out there besides corn. I haven't really read the label on tuna, because I always thought it was just tuna packed in water. Does anyone else eat canned tuna? Or is there a brand that doesn't use soy?

    I started to reach for a can of smoked oysters instead, and those are packed in another highly GMO'ed oil, cottonseed.

    The 5 brands available here all have sunflower oil in them. I just buy tuna in spring water.

    At least a couple of the name brands have something called 'very low sodium' tuna- and these cans have nothing but tuna and water. You just have to hunt for them in the aisle.

    Buy the ones that only have tuna, water/olive oil and salt as the ingredients.

    The nearest Trader Joe's is about 90 miles away from where I am. We're pretty rural out here. What brand of smoked oysters and tuna do you buy? Chicken of the Sea, Starkist and Bumble Bee tuna all have soy listed in the ingredients. The only smoked oysters carried in this area is Geisha and those oysters are floating around in cottonseed oil. So, I'm kinda stuck unless I wanna make a day run for special items at Trader Joe's!

    I have to get mine on my stores' dollar isle. I think the brand is Polar, so not a name brand. There is also some from Starkist that is just tuna, olive oil salt. I only saw it at Publix though, not at my local store.

    Just keep searching.

    You can also get canned wild caught sockeye salmon. Highly recommended.
