The effect of blowing (washing in water agitated with air) on the water absorption and the sand and shell content of soft shell clams was investigated. Water absorption increased in direct proportion to blowing time. The% total solids decreased with increased blowing time. The sand and shell content decreased as blowing progressed but at a diminishing rate. Reducing the volume ratio of clams to water increased water absorption, increased shell removal, and reduced the% total solids.
