These Vietnamese Clams are from the Bén Tré fishery that has been MSC certified since early 2009.
These Vietnamese Clams are gathered by hand using regulated rakes and nets that allow undersized clams to escape. Mechanical harvesting is banned to protect the species and the environment. These careful harvesting methods ensure that the fishery conforms to MSC certification for a sustainable resource.
Clams are naturally high in Vitamin B12, Iron and Selenium. Selenium contributes to the normal function of the immune system, while Vitamin B12 and Iron contribute to the formation of normal red blood cells and a energy-yielding metabolism.
These clams have been cooked in the bag. They require no further cooking and can be eaten cold. Alternatively they can be gently warmed using the natural juices in the bag or used as an ingredient of one of your favourite seafood dishes such as a chowder, vongole or as an element of a seafood paella.
