There are three shrimp values to choose from.


Shrimp from fresh

Shrimp from frosen

And raw crustean shrimp


Are these based off the shrimp that's Breen devieined and shell removed?

Answers

  • Hi Boo,

    Yes, the nutrient values are given for the shrimp with veins and shell removed.
    The nutrient values for foods are for the portion that is typically eaten. For example, they don't include the bones for meats or peels for fruits or vegetables that we typically remove.

    Best,

  • So are you saying for raw or cooked? Or pick the entry for raw or cooked?

    How accurate is it in terms of counting carbs, protein and fat?

  • The values for both raw and cooked shrimp will be for the edible portion only. Some people prefer to use raw values, while other like to use the cooked values. There are pros and cons to each approach.

    The nutrients from USDA and NCCDB are lab analyzed values - the most accurate data we have available! Keep in mind, the actual amounts of any specific nutrient can vary significantly from sample to sample. My apple could be significantly different than your apple, even from the same tree. When the labs do their analysis, they take representative samples of the food for testing. Nutrients are often examined from different samples at different times using different experiments. When we present you with 75 nutrient details for our humble Apple, these numbers were derived from dozens of different laboratory tests and possibly compiled from many different research papers, and we are presenting you with the details for the average Apple.
