Despite the fact that an insignificant amount of meat that has to be extracted from under the dense shell gives more trouble than pleasure, this delicacy is still considered not only delicious, but also dietary. Why?
- This low-calorie product - in 100 grams contains only 78-90 calories.
- In the meat of this animal contains vitamins B (B1, B12, B6, B2), which have a positive effect on the nervous and digestive system, improve the work of the gastrointestinal tract.
- Crustaceans live in practically pure water, which indicates the quality of the product.
- The protein contains, in addition to vitamins D, C, E, K, many other useful trace elements: calcium, magnesium, nickel, fluorine, chromium, iron, sulfur and many others. They improve metabolism, normalize the work of internal organs.

- Food poisoning by cancers, possibly with a poor-quality product. They need to be cooked still alive, otherwise there is a high probability that the meat will be slightly spoiled. It is a perishable product, it needs to be consumed in the near future after cooking, so as not to develop a foodborne infection.
- An important condition for storing already prepared crayfish is clean glassware. In aluminum, because of the high sulfur content, the meat quickly oxidizes and deteriorates.
- Do not eat this product for people with thyroid disease - the course of painful processes worsens, and some diseases worsen.

Itching of the skin and minor rashes like urticaria quickly go away when you cancel this dish. But if the meal continues - the rash begins to intensify, sprinkling almost all the skin, and sometimes mucous membranes.
- In rare cases, the reaction to the protein is so strong that a person is disturbed by a feeling of lack of air, begins swelling of the laryngeal mucosa and anaphylactic shock develops.
