Beware of soy vegetable broth in your canned tuna!

Please read the label on your tuna fish. It should say: tuna, water, salt. It should not say Vegetable Broth (containing soy). Also, look for young tuna, not the larger ones which are higher in mercury than younger tuna. Most of the albacore tuna sold in the grocery stores of the US is the larger, older albacore tuna but if you read the label, you can find soy-free tuna.
The Food and Drug Administration lists the mercury level of "canned albacore tuna" at .353 parts per million. This figure fails to account for the differences between larger, older, long line-caught albacore and smaller, locally-caught albacore. In a recent study by Oregon State University, these smaller tuna were found to have an average mercury content of .140 parts per million. This is less than half of the mercury level of albacore you are likely to find in your supermarket, and nearly the same as "canned light tuna" which the FDA rates at .118 parts per million.
Go to to find young, lower mercury canned tuna that is free of soy vegetable broth.

This tuna is caught in the coastal waters of Washington and Oregon. It is hand filleted, hand packed, and canned here in the USA. The only liquid in our can is what naturally cooks out of the tuna during the canning process. Although the price is a bit higher, you are getting more tuna for your money. Stop paying for water and vegetable broth. Not only this, you are getting healthier tuna that is far better tasting.

Soooo, what’s wrong with soy? Glad you asked!

Soy phytoestrogens are potent antithyroid agents that cause hypothyroidism.
Vitamin B12 analogs in soy are not absorbed.
Soy foods increase the body’s requirement for vitamin D.
Fragile proteins are denatured during high temperature processing of soy.
