Salty question

I prefer to provision with no- or low-sodium canned foods so I can decide whether to add salt, how much, and what kind of salt. Does anyone know enough about the canning industry to comment on lined versus unlined cans and whether salt-added canned foods tend to rust or stale more quickly than no-salt? Tomatoes seem to have a shorter shelf life; canned seafood the longest. Does it pay to be brand loyal?

Re: Salty question

Acidic foods like tomatoes, really need lined cans. Otherwise you end up with metal molecules and taste in the contents. I don't believe that salted food has nearly the effect that acid does.

Re: Salty question

I don'tknow your location, but down here we have a couple of semi-local brands, that are very good quality! We always order them thru our local Piggly Wiggly! They have a large list of salt free, low salt products on there list. Some of these canned goods have been with us for a couple of years ! we just tryed a 2 yr old can of solid pack white albacore. It was still good smelled the same as it did when we bought it !!(not as good as home canned of course lol) Really we have used these brands both in our home and at sea and have found them to hold up well the only thing is Lables, some of them need to be varnished, or the contents labled on the top, cus there lables are a little loose to start with !! We prefer the Best Buy brand of canned goods, we have been useing them for 9 yrs ashore or at sea ! Just our choice, we don't own the company LOL
