Social networks continue to be a space in which experts in various fields share their knowledge and advice. On this occasion, the nutritionist behind TikTok user @fitfoodmania has surprised his followers by revealing the product that he "wouldn't even recommend to his worst enemy" while strolling through the aisles of a supermarket.
The mystery is solved when he shows a package of crab sticks or surimi, a product that is quite popular and frequent in the shopping carts of many consumers. Although these sticks are considered by many to be a quick and easy option to incorporate seafood into your diet, @fitfoodmania has a completely different opinion on the matter.
The nutritionist explains that crab sticks or surimi are made with remains of fish whose origin is unknown, as well as containing sugar and vegetable oils in their main ingredients. This unhealthy combination is what leads the expert to consider these products unattractive from a nutritional point of view.
The video, which has gone viral, is accompanied by the recommendation to avoid eating crab sticks and opt for healthier alternatives. To prove his point, the nutritionist suggests an equally accessible and inexpensive substitute: cooked prawns packed in trays.
The focus is on the explanation provided by the expert, who points out that cooked prawns offer the same nutritional value per kilo as crab sticks, but without the questionable ingredients. This comparison seeks to inform consumers about the importance of reading product labels and making more informed decisions when choosing which foods to incorporate into their diets.
The video has sparked a healthy debate among TikTok users, many of whom have expressed surprise at the nutritionist's revelation and appreciation for the information shared. Others, on the other hand, complain about the high cost of prawns and prefer to continue eating surimi even though it is not so healthy. Opinions, for all tastes.
