On the can it should specify whether or not a serving is with water, or drained. If a serving is 2oz, drained, then measure that. If a serving is 2oz of tuna including water, make sure when you measure it on the scale that you do so without draining. Hope this helped.

Well, that's the thing; it SAYS 2 ounces is a serving, and it has "about 2" servings, but when I drain it and weigh it with a digital scale, it comes out to barely 2 ounces, or 2.1 ounces.
How many calories in the serving size because I think most servings of protein are about 3 oz.

Am I the only one who is conflicted on just how many servings are in a can of tuna? I eat tuna canned in water, and it says it's 5 oz (with water, of course). I drain it and weigh it on a scale, and it usually comes out to about 2 ounces, give or take a little. Yet, the can insists it has about 2 servings, with 2 oz. being the serving size.
Is an entire can of tuna, drained, a serving, or not? My scale says it is, but the nutrition facts state otherwise.
