FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why do the Clams and Mussels have different vacuum levels?

Our Mussels and Clams have different levels of vacuums due to their different shell types. The mussels have a stronger shell and tend to have a higher level of vacuum compared to the more porous shelled clams, which require less vacuum giving it a looser pouch feel.

 

How can I tell if my pouch is blown?

The key indicator to show if your pouch is blown is whether the shells are open on the inside. If the shells are held tight and closed then the pouch has kept its vacuum and all is well. However if you can see the mussels or clams inside are opening, then the pouch has lost its vacuum and is to be discarded.

How do you get such a long shelf life?

Our pouches are the secret to our shelf life, it is almost like a canning process as the pouches keep the oxygen out allowing a long shelf life. It is really amazing - and due to the way we cook them as wholeshell and in their own natural juices, the shellfish tastes fresh, juicy, and delicious right up till that time.
