I actually found soy free tuna at dollar general yesterday! It was their store brand, I think clover valley. Gonna go back and get some tomorrow after I go through the last of my Genova!

I just discovered this and am so not happy.  We recently picked up an 8 pack of Starkist at Sam's, too.  I do have a couple of pouches left...will check them...and some salmon.  (sigh)

If you are worried about the mercury level, see if you can find Safe Catch tuna. They were on shark tank the other night, and while their pitch didnt go over very well, I've  been buying he tuna for a few months and its delicious! My local Whole Foods doesn't  have it but my Luckys Market does. They even have an elite one that is supposedly safe for pregnant women.

Geeze, this was a new one on me. :-( It just seems weird that there would be soy in what they call "water-packed" tuna. Like you all say, gotta read the labels so carefully.

I do like the Cento tuna packed in olive oil, but I have to get that in a specialty market. I'll start stocking up more when I shop there.

If you have a BJ's Whole Sale Club, the Wellsley Farms brand of both white albacore and skip jack tuna are soy free and some of the least expensive I've found. Tuna, salt, & water are the only ingredients. I picked up a 10 pack for $11.99, that's just $1.20 per can.

The annoying thing about tuna packed in water is that soy isn't actually listed in the ingredients, but further down the label it has the disclaimer "contains soy."

Back in my Weight Watcher days umpteen years ago, canned tuna was only available packed in oil, so we'd WASH our tuna before eating!

I'm starting R2 today. As I was preparing for my meals this week, I decided to incorporate tuna this time around. I went to the store to pick some up and as I was reading the label, I was in shock! I never  knew they put soy in canned tuna. I'm kinda bummed out about it.

I've merged your thread with an existing thread on the same topic... scroll back through, i believe there are some tips for brands that are compilant... as always, check your labels everytime you buy.
