Q: Are snails, crabs and prawns healthy to eat?
A: Sea food is generally healthy containing a good amount of protein and Omega 3 fatty acids which are very heart healthy. They are also rich in a lot of minerals and vitamins like Zinc, Vitamin B12, Selenium etc and they are low in calories. However, snails, crabs, prawns and shrimps are also pretty high in cholesterol and so should be taken as an occasional treat by people who have high cholesterol.
Are these seafood best taken fresh or frozen, raw or cooked? Are they safe to take in pregnancy?
