When I come to ethnic groceries or Asian shops, I always find live lobsters sold in the aquarium with quite expensive price for me.
Include shell and wet body, the grocery sells US$ 9.99 per-pound or more than US$ 20 per-kg with sale tax.
It is mean that there are plenty consumers for these crustaceans.
Since the groceries do business every day, it may have highly market demand for lobster.
The highly demand is main factor why the price so expensive compared to other seafood.
Then, we might have a question: Is lobster good for health?
In respect to nutritional values, yes, lobster contains of:
- vitamins (vitamin B12 and vitamin E)
- and omega-3 fatty acids.
Lobster’s minerals include:
- and magnesium.
However, lobster does contain cholesterol. Lobster have 124 mg cholesterol in 85gram meats.
If we have 1.5-pound lobster means that there is around 170-gram meat. Thus, 1.5-pound lobster would have 248 mg cholesterol.
In addition to mineral and vitamins, lobster is source of protein. It is good for diet too, since its contain lower fat and lower calories.
