Brown crab is native to the UK and is the heaviest kind of seafood crab along our coast. It has white sweet tasting meat in its claws and darker, fattier brown meat under the main shell. This is Male Brown Crab (700-1kg each) with very good meat-to-shell ratio. Caught and prepared in Devon, the brown crab is then frozen within a few hours to prolong its freshness.
Crab meat is an excellent source of protein, important for muscle growth and cell regeneration. It is also rich in minerals, Potassium and Phosphorus, good for the bone health and fluid balance, as well as Omega-3 acids, which are essential for maintaining a healthy heart and brain. Its high levels of Vitamin C help boost the immune system and improve your vision.
