Can i eat crab during my pregnancy?
is it ok to eat crab and lobster during pregnancy?
There are a number of diseases that can be found in shellfish. However, none of them make shellfish something to specifically avoid during pregnancy. If you have any "sensitivities" to shellfish, then avoiding them is obvious. Some crab cakes are made with imitation crab (surimi) that is whitefish and rice starch flavored and colored using a paste made from crab shells.
