The crabmeat is placed in enclosed glass jars or plastic cups and then pasteurised. The whole process takes about 4 hours, including 2 hours at 89°C and 2 hours in an ice bath. Since the product never boils, it is the sudden change of temperature that destroys most bacteria. The pasteurisation process kills any bacteria that could have been present during the manufacturing stages, making it healthy to eat straight from the can.
The meat of the wild Blue swimmer crab has a delicate texture and a sweet flavour. This food is chilled, not frozen, and can be included in soups, salads, quiches, omelettes, and a host of other dishes. The crab comes from the Indian Ocean. Ready for eating.
