For patients of asthma, chronic diarrhea, and skin allergy… it is estimated that, 20% of the causes could be from shrimp consumption. Therefore, we must pay close attention to some details before having our favorite shrimp meals.


Important things before eating Shrimpprawns


Avoid shrimp heads

Shrimp head is the where toxins, bacterias, and parasitic creatures reside. It is not recommended for regular consumption.

Besides, we should eat shrimp moderately, not too much at once, since shrimps are very rich in protein. Which can easily lead to allergic signs for certain consumers, such as: visible hives, or pores. Shrimps also contain a high doses of purin, which is extremely advised AGAINST gout patients.


Avoid dead shrimps

Histidine, found abundantly in shrimps, plays an important role to Shrimp’s tastiness. But, when the shrimp is decomposing, histidine is transformed by harmful bacterias into histamine, which is bad for consumer’s heath.

Also, in the stomach and intestine of shrimps, we usually find bad bacterias, and toxins. Especially, when the shrimp is left dead unprocessed for a long time, toxins would accumulate quickly, and would certainly cause food poisoning.

Avoid uncooked shrimps

It was a common misbelief that shrimps tasted best when they were uncooked, and it was easier for people to fully obtain ALL the nutritional values of the shrimps. That’s horribly wrong. Uncooked shrimps will only give consumers certain things such as flukes, parasites, these can even end up in your brain.

A good tip to test the quality of shrimp: if a cooked shrimped smelled too fishy; meat lost the firm texture and bounciness; the color was much darker (in orange); and you could feel a slimy texture between the shell and the shrimp; your shimps had been compromised, they were of inferior quality and possibly unsafe for human consumption.
