The Health Benefits of Albacore Tuna
Albacore is the only type of tuna that can be labeled as white meat tuna. Solid albacore refers to canned white tuna in which the fish remains in larger pieces. When the albacore is chopped into smaller pieces and canned, it's called chunk white tuna. A 3-ounce serving of canned albacore tuna packed in water has 109 calories and 3 grams of total fat. When it’s canned in oil, the same portion has 158 calories and 7 grams of total fat.
Albacore tuna has about the same amount of protein as meat and poultry, but when it's packed in water, it has half the calories and one-fourth the total fat as the average amount in beef and chicken.
Selenium combines with proteins to create substances that act as antioxidants and regulate thyroid hormones. Your immune system also depends on selenium to regulate the immune response.
