About lobster

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.

FAQs About Lobster

Lobster is an extraordinary source of choline. Research has shown that choline is needed for the development of memory and the brain in general. In pregnant women, mothers who consume adequate choline during pregnancy gave long-term benefits to their children's memory function. Several animal studies have also confirmed the benefits of choline during pregnancy. In the second trimester, 450 milligrams are considered an adequate choline intake, and one cup of lobster provides 26% of this amount. Therefore, lobster is very beneficial to pregnant mothers.

Lobster is a very lean protein. One cup of lobster provides nearly 28 grams of protein and relatively few calories for seafood. It provides all of the essential amino acids a human body needs. These factors, along with the substantial amount of Omega 3s, are ideal for helping lose weight. Overall, lobster is an ideal option to switch to for better protein intake and a lighter diet. 

One of the common concerns with eating lobster is allergies, as they are a common food allergen. If you have a history of shellfish allergies, then it is best to avoid it altogether. Lobsters can also have a moderate to higher mercury level, and those concerned might want to limit their lobster intake to only about six times a month or less.

It is important to note that the total diet or overall eating pattern is the most important factor for disease prevention and healthy function. It is better to eat a diet with various foods than to concentrate on only eating individual supposed superfoods as the gateway to good health.
