Many people, including health-conscious consumers, are concerned about the cholesterol content of foods such as meat, eggs and dairy products.

It has long been promoted by many in the health community that shrimp is bad for your health due to the high level of cholesterol. This has been challenged through a number of excellent scientific studies but unfortunately the myths continue to be raised.

Our presentation will put the evidence on display and we will highlight why in the case of shrimp, the cholesterol story is different.

Many people are denying themselves the enjoyment and nourishment that a 'feed of shrimp' can give and we will emphasize the need to promote this important information.
