Ask a dietition

  • I know that shrimp and other fish are a good source of heart-healthy omega-3 fats – but now I’m seeing omega-3s in all sorts of products in the grocery store. Does this mean that if I eat these other foods it’s not as important to eat my 2 servings of seafood a week?

We already know that shrimp is low in fat and calories. But if you are concerned about cholesterol, there is good news. You do not have to give up shrimp! Research shows and dietitians concur that the high percentage of "good fats" in shrimp reduces the impact of cholesterol. So enjoy shrimp as part of a balanced - and delicious - diet.
