    Well it depends what you define as clean (low fat, low sugar etc) and the actual brand itself. Personally I don't eat it because the brands that they carry near me have equal parts carbs to protein, there's that much sugar added to it. The taste isn't bad but when I'm trying to eat meat, i don't expect half of it to be carbs! That being said, it tastes decent and I've used it when cooking for others i.e. in casseroles and salads etc.

    I'd prefer real crab meat obviously, but the imitation crab meat isn't bad. It's just not as healthy and does have some unnecessary ingredients added.
