We use it as stock, but not sure is good or not since some of them has been in the shelf for quite sometime already.

Hi mathsparks,

I stopped buying tuna in brine long ago because of the salt content. Now buy the one in water.

I used to throw the brine away, and even rinse the salt off the tuna.

Not sure if this topic has been discussed in previous years, if not, can we start one -

Pls share what brands you like n why? There are so many brands till I am not sure which one is value for money.

I saw from the tv, there are canned abalones from Taiwan, China, besides the usual Mexico, Australia and NZ.
