Clams are bivalve mollusks, with the greatest diversity of species here in North America. Some clams prefer the turbid waters of the ocean, while others find their home in freshwater and marine environments. The clams in our extract is sourced from farms in clean ocean waters of the pacific and are from the order Venerida clam. Our clam extract powder is made from a natural heat extraction process, in which the clam juice is concentrated and naturally dried without a carrier. The flavor our clam is a clean, balanced clam flavor, and imparts natural umami characteristics due to its amino acid profile.
Clams posses a burrowing foot which helps them entrench themselves into the sand of either the riverbed or ocean floor. Their lifecycles are only up to a year, but they serve not only as food source to humans all over the globe, but to many different animals, most notably sea lions and walruses. Clams are low in fat and high in protein, which attributes to umami enhancement in savory applications. They are also high B vitamins, zinc, iron, and Omega-3 fatty acids, as well as low in saturated fat.
