Which Taste Better? Corned Beef or Corned Tuna?

Corned beef is shredded cured beef. The term “corned” means shredded or transformed to small particles without the use of grinder. Perhaps you already noticed that every corned beef you buy are just shredded, not ground.

Two tuna manufacturers launched the corned version of the popular tuna flakes, the corned tuna. Their television commercials implied this – Corned tuna with the taste of corned beef.

Argentina Corned Beef also launched a tv commercial to counter the corned tuna brands. They emphasized that corned beef taste beefier than corned tuna. I wonder why they need to show comparison. Beef and tuna are totally different, they have different taste and flavors of their own. There are no points of comparison when the principles of sensory evaluation is applied.

Tuna is delectable by nature. Flavor enhancers are not necessary. People are buying tuna because they want the authentic taste of tuna fish and not the taste of beef. If tuna fish can talk, they will say that they don’t need beef flavor.
