Health Tip: Choosing Canned Seafood

View the Fat-Fighting Foods Slideshow

(HealthDay News) -- For cost and convenience, canned seafood can be a wise choice to help you eat more fish.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these suggestions for buying canned seafood:

  • Read the label to see how the fish is packed. Avoid products packed in oil and choose those packed in water, which contain less fat.
  • For a more mild, drier flavor, opt for fish packed in spring water or vacuum-sealed packs.
  • Read the label to see if the product contains edible bones, which can provide a significant amount of calcium.
