Meet some of the seafood nutritional characteristics:
It's a food rich in proteins and amino acids. The seafood contains all existing amino acids, which are essential to human life and easily utilized by the body, rather than meat proteins.
Existing fat seafood is sparse (the quantity may vary between 1% and 5%). 100 grams of seafood are equivalent to 100 to 200 calories. Often, which makes the seafood a fatty food is how we cook with sauces, mayonnaise, butter. If the method of preparation is the grilled base, baked or cooked without added fat, its calorific value is much lower. Therefore, in addition to taste the seafood in its natural flavor, do not have to worry about the calories more, for example, the shrimp contains only 80 calories, while the crab has 60 calories and lobster, in turn, It has 80 calories such as shrimp.
Let's talk now of vitamins. Seafood is rich in vitamin B, niacin and thiamine. These types of vitamins are necessary for production of hemoglobin in red blood cells, for maintenance of myelin (compound covering the nerves) and DNA synthesis.
In addition, seafood is a rich source of minerals such as calcium and zinc (oysters, crustaceans), iron (shrimp and oysters), iodine, phosphorus (all seafood in general), among others.
This type of food as well as abundant in our country, is a delicacy in Portuguese cuisine and a good food for health and taste.
