Thanks for this info! I thought I was the only person that thought scallops sometimes had a gross after taste ( thought maybe it was the way I cooked them?) I was going to buy some at the grocery store today, but i will stick with BJ's or Trader Joe's!

Both Trader Joe's and BJ's sell frozen scallops free of this chemical. I long ago quit buying scallops at the fish counter in grocery stores because of this chemical. IMO, it makes scallops taste nasty.

Yintainia...the scary thing was, these weren't processed scallops...they were on ice, not bagged or boxed...in a fish market...now I'm checking out shrimp on the net, and other seafoods...they're a big part of my food intake and I had no clue they were being treated...

Thx for the info. On a similar note, I know that there is a lot on the radio news this week about how restaurants are not serving the actual species of fish that they say they are, some sort of DNA testing by the food-monitors is saying that this is happening as much as 7 out of 10 times with meals served at restaurants, I am distraught, but not surprised *sigh* What is a fish-loving girl to do if she doesn't have the time or ability to catch it all herself? Some years ago, there were reputable "fish markets", I don't know if I have seen one in 20+ years now.

That is awful news. -_- I love sea scallops. It is good you are sharing the information though, until enough of us are informed and able to say "I won't buy processed foods" they will keep doing it.

One day, one step at a time. We will succeed.

...OMG...I learned this today at my local fish market...sea scallops being sold as "fresh", are actually canned on fishing boats and treated with Sodium Tripolyphosphate...if you notice your scallops shrinking down to nothing and/or having a soapy aftertaste, they most likely have been over processed...Scallops labeled "dry" have been freshly shucked, and aren't treated with the preservative, but of course, are more expensive...sheesh...every damn thing we eat has to be investigated these days...

And yes, when I Googled Sodium Tripolyphosphate, the info isn't good news...
