Thanks for the info!  Very useful.

The yield shown is for the total volume for the can size, not the yield for foods in the can.  The yield for specific foods will vary depending upon the type of food.

Does this yield include liquid or without liquid?

Thank you

I am fascinated with cooking and truly enjoy dinner parties and shindigs. The information on this site has captured me for the last few hours.
