It claims to be "safely preserved in natural brine" on the product page, but the ingredient list also includes sodium tripolyphosphate, citric acid, calcium disodium EDTA, and sodium metabisulfite as preservatives and additives. Moreover, they contain onion and laurel extracts, which are likely to be used It appears that there are other canned chopped clam brands out there with only water, salt, clams, and clam juice as ingredients. Based on the address on the label and the stamp on the bottom of the can, these clams are made in Chile. Accordng to my shipment from early 2021, I can eat these through 2024, so they should last a while. *** As for the clams, they taste pretty good, and they look good too. My apologies, but I forgot to take a picture of the opened can, so I'll have to take a new one after I open another. My experience was pleasant. The snack has a chewy texture, no rocks or sand, and I found the taste enjoyable. I sniffed the contents when I opened the can and found the smell to be mild and inoffensive - just like brine. It would make a very tasty clam chowder or a pasta dish with clams. Regardless of all the preservatives, I dock two stars because they claim to be "preserved in natural brine", despite their being a lot of them, and because Bar Harbor will chop clams for you while using anything but salt as a preserver.
My first step in reviewing food items is to prepare The cook - The first thing to do is to try something before reading the label and comparing the ingredients with my experience. The Geomar clam is a wild type of clam - observations I caught these in Chile
(1) On a sliding scale, I found that these were well-paced, and in tune with each other Truly great-tasting, tender clams that serve as the basis for an outstanding, refreshing cocktail There is a distinct fishy flavor and freshness to it. (2) I never encountered any clam shell remnants or stray sand grains that are typical in canned mollusk/shellfish goods. (2) Now that I'm hooked on Shirataki noodles, I found these to be quite tasty combined with garlic, parsley, olive oil, and white wine. (3) They're a good value, but they're not spectacular There is a wide range of brands that are similar in composition, as well as brands that consist only of clams, clam juice, and sea salt, like Thayer's Crab Cakes.
The following item is up for review GEMARK Chopped Clams - Safely Preserved in Natural Brine - Pack of 6 I usually just buy whatever chopped clams I can find in the supermarket, whether they are store brands or generic brands. Those 'other' cans are often much lighter on shellfish than those I get in the cans I normally buy. I come away far too often disappointed by how much water is left in the can compared to how much I get in those 'other'
When I opened the can of Geomar Chopped Clams, I immediately realized that these clams were higher quality than what I had previously tasted. In the first place, I poured the can of clams into a cup to learn how much liquid there was to clams, and I was shocked to find that the clam meat was substantially more in this brand than the other brands. I made linguine with clam sauce as per my usual recipe It turned out to be a very tasty clam sauce for me and my family. I had peppers and onions from the garden, spices, clam juice from the can, milk, GeoMar claims, and flour to thicken the sauce over some tasty pasta and I couldn't have asked for anything better. After making the sauce, I was pleased to find that it contained plenty of clam meat, but was not fishy or weird in taste It tasted just right and was choppily exuded just the way I like it. It also had just the right degree of chewiness to keep the claims consistent. In spite of my tendency not to eat claims right out of the can, I thought that visually the claims looked to be worthy of eating "straight-from-the-can" In an effort to test them out, I tried them right out of the can with a fork they were great So good that I might make a chicken salad-esque version of it instead of a claim salad to use as a salad for sandwiches. - All - In any case, I rate Geomar's claims 5 out of 5 This product was rated as a star.

Since I’m an avid clam chowder fan, I was extremely excited to prepare a pot of clam chowder with the Chopped Clams from GEOMAR. It was a bit strange to see the clams minced so haphazardly with almost no scent. To make my clam chowder, I used three canned chopped clams and poured all of their juices into the pot to boil my vegetables. We were confused as to why the chowder was so bland when I served it to my family However, the minced clams were devoid of flavor and were slightly chewy. In my review of the cans after dinner, I was shocked (and slightly disappointed) to find that the clams were not sitting in salted clam juice, but instead in Although no one got ill, I was very irritated as my clam chowder was really more a potato A dollar is equal to $4. I would avoid these flavorless bits and pieces and purchase other brands of clams that sit in their own juices for about 50 cents extra per can. The lesson I learned from this was great Regardless of whether it is a simple tin of clams or something more complex, read the label.
