Gluten can hide in some pretty tricky places, including in sauces, soups, flavorings and imitation seafood. Imitation seafood isn’t something I ate a lot of before I started the gluten-free diet, but I wouldn’t have thought that it contained gluten. Crab Classic recently made a change to their products that makes them all gluten-free now. They made this change after learning that many people who were following the gluten-free diet were purchasing their Crab Classic Chunk Style and Lobster Classic because they didn’t contain gluten. Making a change to their ingredients didn’t affect the taste and quality of the product, so it was the right thing to do.
More about this change:
We are proud to say that effective Fall 2014, our production plant became a dedicated, 100% gluten-free facility and all of our products are now gluten-free. You’ll find a gluten-free banner on all of our packaging. Be assured our products have the same delicious flavor and high quality that has made us America’s #1 brand of surimi seafood.
More about surimi seafood (imitation crab):
Even though surimi seafood, also known as imitation crab, has been available in the U.S. since the 1970s there is still a lot of confusion about how our products are made. It’s a centuries-old process started in Japan in which white fish is cleaned, minced and flavored and then formed into flake, chunk and leg style pieces. We use a blend of wild caught,MSC-certified Alaska Pollock and real king crabmeat to make Crab Classic.
Crab Classic offers a wide variety of products:
- Crab Classic Flake
- Crab Classic Chunk
- Crab Classic Leg
- Crab Classis Shred
- Lobster Classic
