Crab meat has a soft, delicate, and sweet taste, and it contains almost as much protein per gram as meat. The protein available in crab is high quality and very digestible for people of all ages. And it’s not just protein! Crab is also a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, important minerals like selenium, phosphorus, zinc, and copper, and vitamins B12, B6, niacin, and folate.
