SHOP SMART: When choosing canned tuna, remember: *Solid white tuna (usually albacore, ye llowfin or Tongol) is milder in flavor, has whiter meat and is packed in water. *Light meat tuna (usually skipjack or bonita) is stronger in flavor, darker in color and packed in oil or water.— Taste of Home Test Kitchen
