    Looks tasty Flavia
    I think it’s important that everyone be aware that most grocery store tuna
    Is cooked outside of the can and it’s oh so healthy fat is mainly removed.
    This oil is then sold and used in supplements. If you purchase tuna cooked in
    the can, it still has all of the good stuff. Dont pour off the liquid from cooked in can
    tuna. Also line caught tuna is caught sustainably and the smaller fish have much less
    mercury. Im pregnant and crave tuna, but special order line caught cooked in can. It is
    more expensive but a much healthier choice for us and the fish!

        Hi, I’m in the US and I order wild planet brand from Amazon.com. There are other brands and higher end grocers/ health food stores carry them. I order online in bulk to save money.
