    Back when I was into dieting around 2004 / 2005, i remember a can of Chicken of the Sea containing about 33 grams of protein. I bought a bunch of them the other day, and checking out the nutrition facts read that there's only about 26 grams in the can. Anyone else notice this?

    Because, they don't always match up serving size with can size on the nutritional info?

    1 can does not equal 1 serving. the cans used to say 2.5 servings per can, lately i've noticed they say 2 servings per can. maybe tuna prices have went up so they decreased the amount in each can to keep price stability?

    now that i think about it i haven't gotten one that says 2.5 for a while.

    I noticed this, i few months ago it randomly started being 2 servings instead of 2.5. I don't think its coming back up.
