I understand if you’re quite shocked, because it’s something quite disgusting. But it is not as bad as you might think it.
Why I say esto? Then keep reading.
Maybe someone has told you what you’ve read it before, but you never imported, and you followed eating. Because you do not judge.
And it is true: that black line that for years we have seen on our delicious shrimp… is poop.
Because that line that passes through the body of the shrimp is your gut:
There are some chefs who remove them to peel and devein them to prepare them because it makes people sick to eat it. But they don’t really know anything.
It may sound disgusting, but we should not worry about the poop of the shrimp we eat: is not harmful to our health, because these crustaceans only feed on algae and plankton.
So yes, we are eating shrimp poop. But it is the best poop that we could eat.
