What Makes Culinary Reserve Crab Meat the Best?

Our premium line of pasteurized Blue Swimming Crab meat was created to meet the highest standards of seafood excellence. Our customers prefer Culinary Reserve for its sweet, clean, buttery flavor and delicate, flaky texture.

Our crabs are responsibly wild caught from the Indonesian Spice Islands. Live crabs are steamed immediately, which is the key to our premium quality. The crab meat is then 100% hand-picked, immediately chilled, and pasteurized under the strictest quality control standards. In addition, we regularly micro-test our crab meat to guarantee food safety.

But what is the DIFFERENCE between each type of crab meat?! We have special crab meat, claw crab meat, lump crab meat, super lump crab meat, jumbo lump crab meat, and colossal crab meat. So let’s break down where each variety of meat comes from and the best times to use them in your recipes.
