–       The base liquid of the canned tuna (If you are on a diet, it is best to opt for canned tuna in water).

–       The packaging of the can (If possible, choose canned tuna in BPA-free cans. These cans are safer and can retain the quality of the tuna).

–       Environmentally friendly labels (If possible, check whether the tuna fish are fished ethically or not. Make green choices!)
