Heath Benefits from Champagne Lobster

  • While lobster has earned a reputation as a calorie-rich cuisine due to many of the methods by which it is cooked and served, lobster in and of itself is a very healthy food choice. It is an excellent source of lean protein, with less fat and cholesterol than skinless chicken breast.
  • Lobster is also high in amino acids, potassium, magnesium, Vitamins A, B12, B6, B3 and B2. It is rich in calcium, phosphorus and zinc.
  • Lobster is also one of the best sources of easily absorbable iron.
  • Lobster has less calories, less total fat and less cholesterol (based on 100 grams of cooked product) than lean beef; whole poached eggs; and even roasted, skinless chicken breast.
