Our shrimp extract is made from a balanced mix of meat and shells that will provide a clean shellfish flavor characteristic of shrimp. The flavor is very “neat” and does not have any off notes or the undesirable fishy notes. The clean distinct flavor is achieved by our unique process of natural heat extraction of fresh shrimp. The flavors are very stable even in thermal processing.
