Flake tuna -- has entirely small bits or fragments

White meat tuna - from the albacore tuna.

Use the light meat in mayonnaise=dressed salads, casseroles or any other dish where appearnce is not important

The more expensive white tuna is more attractively suited for antipasto platters and vinaigrette salads where appearance is important

Tuna packed in water has about half the calories of tuna packed in oil

But even packed in oil, tuna has only 200 to 300 calories per 3-1/2 ounces.
