Once fished, the Atlantic Limpet arrives at the ALD factory to be shelled. Traditional steam-shelling techniques not being adapted to the fragile flesh of the limpet, we had to find an alternative which was more respectful of its delicate nature.
Thanks to several years of research and development, we have successfully developed and perfected a shelling method which uses neither heat nor chemical treatment and allows an optimal separation of the flesh from the shell. Once liberated, the flesh is cleaned in purified sea water and immediately frozen to IQF (Individual Quick Frozen) standards in order to keep all the sense-stimulating and nutritional values.
This method not only allows us to offer a completely clean limpet, but also permits the effective exploitation of the shell.
