if they grind up clams they must run them thru a micron filter since i dont notice any particles in the juice. rite on abt label has msg, spices,onion etc.
u dont picture texas as big clam state---more into shrimp,red snapper, roughy, and catfish i thot!!!
I used to shop at HEB all the time when I lived in Austin back in the first half of the '70's ('70-'75) - but the nearest one to me now is in Cleburne - about 25 miles south of where I live. There have been rumors that HEB is going to buy out the Albertson's stores in this area for about 2 years - but nothing has happened, yet. However, I do have a Central Market (owned by HEB) just a couple of miles down the road.
I don't know how they liquefy
the clams - or any other part of the process. But, I would assume there is some form of filtration used somewhere in the processing.
If you are just looking to get the same flavor
then it sounds like you've found a couple of winners. If you're trying to get the same nutritional value
then you might need to add a bottle of clam juice to a bottle/can of your favorite "taste alike".
