As with all of our Canned Clams and Clam Juice we start with our sustainably harvested domestic clams and through our special cooking process we ensure our clams retain their natural color, flavor, and nutritional value. We take great pride in our chopped clams and clam juice providing the finest product available to the foodservice, industrial and retail trade. One of the advantages of buying canned clams is that the retort process (high temperature and pressure) which is used to reach commercial sterility also makes the clams very tender. This process breaks down the firm texture of clams and makes them much more versatile and appealing to the masses. The fact that the meat cooks in its own juices keeps it very flavorful for many different recipes. Food safety and protection is even more important than ever. The sealed steel can is sturdy and shelf stable only requiring dry storage.
