- What is white tuna?
The only species of fish that can be called “White Tuna” is Albacore. It is white to light pink in color and has a fairly firm texture. The flavor is mild; it has a very mild fish flavor.
This is probably the reason why it's more expensive that regular tuna. Albacore tuna is dubbed as the second largest commercial catch in the U.S., after the yellowfin tuna.
- What is the difference between white and red tuna?
Unlike some fish that have white flesh, tuna has muscle tissue that ranges from a very light pink that is almost white in color to a dark red. When canned, white tuna, also known as albacore tuna, refers to the lighter flesh, and dark tuna, or light tuna, has darker flesh.
- Are all white tunas Albacore?
Unfortunately in the U.S. no. When you see something that says ‘white tuna’ and not ‘albacore,’ it is not albacore. White tunas are usually ‘oilfish,’ ‘butterfish’ or ‘escolar.’
Be aware the the Japanese government considers these last three type of fishes toxic since human bodies cannot digest their oil.
