WHAT IS CRAB STICK ?
Crab Stick is made from surimi – fish meat that has been removed, washed to remove fat and unwanted meat, and then minced into a paste. This paste is mixed with other ingredients before being heated and pressed into a shape that mimics crab meat.
Although imitation crab is made from seafood, it usually does not contain crab – except for a small amount of crab extract which is sometimes added for flavor.
