CRAB IS A GREAT SOURCE OF PROTEIN Crab is one of the best possible dietary sources of protein available. It contains almost as much protein per 100 grammes as meats, without anywhere near the same levels of saturated fat, which is linked to an increased risk of heart disease. The protein in crab is of high quality and because of a lack of connective tissue, very digestible for people of all ages.

Folate also plays a role in preventing birth defects, so expectant and new mothers are encouraged to get more.
