What is artificial crab meat made out of, if it is not actually real crab?


I just love this seafood salad I pick up at the grocery store, but I noticed it is not made with real crab meat. If it is not real crab meat, what is it? I am not sure that I really want to know, but ... Thank you for answering.

    Hello M. T. Dremer, Oh, wow, well, I am glad it is also made from a common fish, but that paste with the pink strip now has me wondering of what the pink strip is made? Probably, the paste just dyed pink maybe? Thank you for answering!

    Hi Marlene, Wow! Thank you so much. Yes, that is an important reason to read it. Funny, mine did not say imitation or have the ingredients, so hopefully mine is the real deal. I meant to call it imitation.

    Thanks so much, Jackie. Yes, it does taste good and you're probably right about it not being too bad. Lobster sounds great too. I bet they were the best fresh crab cakes no doubt.

    Hi there, Bubblegum Jones, it truly does taste very good. Oh, I found that picture on en.wikipedia and chose it because it looks like an imitation crab lol.

    Yes...I will make sure it is not imitation but the real deal. You're right as there is no telling what it really is!
