The Instarcart guide to lobster products
Today lobster is known as a gourmet dish, but it has quite a varied history. When the first European settlers arrived in North America, lobsters were in plenty. They were so many and undesirable that they were commonly used as fertilizer and fish bait by the first Europeans and the Native Americans. But when the railway and canned food came about, all this changed. Lobster suddenly became popular again, with newer and bigger demand from restaurants. Cookbooks began giving the best recipes for cooking lobster, and the crustaceans' biggest use changed from a fertilizer to a gourmet dish.
Among seafoods, lobster has high nutritional value. Their meat is low in calories but at the same time packed with vitamins and minerals. It is a lean protein source with very minimal fat and has heart-healthy omega 3 fatty acids.
