Is Crab Good For You?

The answer is a big juicy YES! a doubt one of the best possible dietary sources of protein available. It contains almost as much protein per 100 grammes as meats without anywhere near the same levels of saturated fat, which is linked to an increased risk of heart disease. The protein in crabmeat is of high quality and, because of a lack of connective tissue, very digestible for people of all ages.
