The Most Dangerous Salad on the New Year’s Table Has Been Named

The expert named a harmful salad that should not be prepared for the New Year. Nutritionist Olena Stepanova said that fans of crab stick salad should minimize its consumption or exclude it from their diet altogether.

“Crab sticks do not contain crab meat. They only resemble crab meat in color, taste and texture, but consist of processed fish, starch, dye, and flavoring additives. The benefits of an industrially produced product are questionable. If we’re talking about healthy eating, it’s better to eat crab meat, shrimp, or fish,” the expert says.

Stepanova added that this product can most often be seen in a salad, which is seasoned with an even less healthy product – mayonnaise.

“If you come to visit and there is no healthier alternative on the table, then one or two tablespoons will not do much harm, unless, of course, you combine them with other healthy dishes on the table. If you are on a medical diet, I recommend refraining from crab sticks, and I also advise those who have allergic symptoms, digestive problems, autoimmune diseases, food sensitivities, skin manifestations, chronic fatigue, apathy, depression, migraines, headaches to avoid them,” the expert concluded.
