The Bumble Bee brand states tuna water salt and soy.

Weird!

Oh, great. This info has me going and digging around my cans of tuna, reading the labels! I was pretty upset recently,..when I discovered that my canned chicken chunks listed "potato starch" as an ingredient. Now this (ugh!).

Dang it! I've been making my own mayo mostly so I could have tuna salad without soybean oil in it! Now I have 8 cans of tuna with soybean oil in it! I almost feel like returning it! I do feel like returning it!

This is about as angry as I get. Soybean oil really makes my stomach hurt and I have been blaming my sore stomach on all sorts of other things like the type of sprouts I was making and the olives I bought. It might have been the Tuna all along! I threw away a whole bag of sprout seeds with fenugreek seeds in the mix because I thought they were hurting me.

Idiots! Who needs soybean oil in their Tuna?!?!

I have let a lot 'slip' and become lenient over the years with LCing, however SOY is a definite NO go for me. I have probably a dozen cans. W/ Lent there have been some teriffic sales on tuna.

unfortunately, the vegetable broth is just another way to hide soy on the label. Regular Bumble Bee lists tuna, water, vegetable broth, salt. But, the product contains soy.

Would you know if this is true across the board? I only read lables every once in a while now...as I am a creature of habit and rarely, if ever, buy 'new things' and I assume, (obviously a bad idea!) that the things I always get are OK.

Chicken of the Sea and Starkist chunk light and solid white in water both have vegetable broth. And in the ingredient list it says: contains soybeans. So, I expect the soybeans are in the broth because they aren't actually in the list of ingredients.

I've been mad about this all night, and this morning I'm thinking about "Tuna in Oil". Does anyone have any of this and is it the dreaded Soybean Oil?

I hadn't been buying it because it's flavor is a little strong. But I could get used to it if it's a good fish oil or something actually edible.

No idea about oil tuna, as that flavor is DEFINETLY not for me.

I would think so, unless explicitly stated that there is no soy. The Bumblee Bee prime fillet is really good- I don't know of any other brands off hand for tuna. Interestingly, it seems that canned wild salmon doesn't have the soy in many of the brands.

Unfortunately, there is soy bean and vegetable oil in almost everything. Same with HFCS. I recently threw out some gel supplements that had soy and vegetable oil in them. I hate canned tuna so can't help you out. I understand your anger though. Its disgusting the way our food is messed with.

These folks will be the first ones up against the wall when the revolution comes...

I've learned not to get too excited about vegetable oil in dark bottles or cans, but please! Stop the madness! Why put extra things in stuff that doesn't need extra things? If I want soy in my meat, I can put it there myself!

I thought "vegetable broth" was one of the sleight of hand phrases instead of MSG...?

In a mainstream supermarket, I don't think I've ever seen tuna in oil where the oil was other than soy. I do see sardines in olive oil, right next to the sardines in soy oil.

I screwed up last week and had a can of sardines in soy oil. I had heartburn for the rest of the day

EDIT: drats! ALL my tuna cans have soy in 'em. I actually like the taste of Mackerel,..and saw that my Polar brand doesn't have soy in it. However,..the Mackerel lists "brine". Double drats,..since I have to watch my intake of salt. Doesn't leave very much, does it? Looks like I'll be going to the store soon, for sure.
