LIVINGLIVING MAKING CARBS COUNT

dispel some of the advice that has been

given out in the past by nutritionists that

he pointed out was either incorrect or

out of date, including the concerns for

pregnant women eating cooked shellfish

and the fears of the cholesterol content

of shellfish.

"Shellfish do contain cholesterol, but

it is the saturated fat content that is more

important," he said. "Eating prawns does

not raise your blood cholesterol."

The Shellfish Association also

has a traffic light guide, based on the

guides used on many food products in

supermarkets, to demonstrate the fat,

salt and sugar content of shellfish. While

most shellfish had an amber light for the

salt content, only crab had an amber light

for fat content -- but not saturated fats.

All other shellfish had a green light for

fat and sugar content.

A good catch

In all the UK catches and grows 140,000

tonnes of shellfish a year although

106,400 tonnes are exported -- 76 %of

production -- and most of the exports

go to France and Continental Europe.

Shellfish accounts for a third of all sea

food that is landed and half the value of

the catch.
