Does the Acceptable Market Name and or Common Name listed on FDA’s The Seafood List just apply to seafood when sold as a single ingredient or does it also apply when the seafood ingredient is used in a multi-ingredient product?  The seafood ingredient is further processed in a formula with other ingredient components and sold as a completely different product.   Example, if using Arctica islandica, with an Acceptable Market Name of Hard Clam, would it be acceptable to just state Clam Meat within the ingredient declaration?  We may have several different species of clam meat we can alternate between, interchangeable, which do not affect properties of the finish product.  The same question applies to other seafood ingredients such as clam broth, clam juice concentrate, and clam flavors when used in a multi-ingredient product. We would like to just state clam meat and not hard clam meat, clam broth and not hard clam broth, etc. within the ingredient declaration.  Your help is greatly appreciated.

I have usually seen such finished products listed as “clam” rather than type of clam, unless you specifically want to promote the type you are using. You can always contact the FDA Office of Seafood for further clarification (the contact information would be on their website).
