bioavalibilty of protein in Canned tuna

  1. bioavalibilty of protein in Canned tuna


    Does the processing involved in canned tuna take away from the bioavailbility of the protein? May sound like a dumb ? but just curious. Also is it as good a protein source as grilled chicken?


  2. I'm pretty sure it's fine. Even if it is processed it's minimal. I mean a hotdog is about as processed as it gets and it has protein. Not that I'd ever eat a hot dog after seeing how they are made on Discovery Channel...

  3. ... eh, gross! There's a show called "how it's made" or something like that, probably the show you mentioned planetfuzz. Anyway, they had a segment on how hot dogs are made - way too gross, probably never eating a hotdog ever again.

    Yeah. That was it. VERY disturbing.

  5. the processing of the tuna may not take away from the bv...but it takes a lot of heat to seal those cans and that will definately denature the protein...therefore lowering the b.v.

    It wasn't as bad as I had thought. I was actually happier, because I thought it was a lot dirtier than that.

  7. Transdermal is more efficient.

  8. suppository is even more efficient.
