Tuna Recipes

There are so many benefits to eating tuna. It is an excellent source of lean protein, vitamins, and minerals. One 6 oz can of tuna is about one third of our recommended daily amount of protein. It is naturally low in fat and calories. For 1-6oz can of StarKist Chunk Light Tuna in Water, there is 100 calories, 2g of fat and 22g of protein.
