Can green crabs be eaten after they die
Green crabs are rich in nutrients and delicious, but if they die, they will produce substances that are not conducive to health. Therefore, when you buy green crabs, you must pay attention to the choice, or after you buy them, don't put them for too long and cook them in time.
The reason why you can't eat it is that when the green crab is dying or dead, the histamine will be produced by the decomposition of histic acid in the crab. Histamine is a kind of toxic substance. With the prolongation of the death time, more and more histamine is accumulated in the crab body, and the poison gas is more and more large. Even if the crab is cooked, the toxin is not easy to be destroyed. And excessive ammonia nitrogen must be discharged from the kidney, so eating dead crab is very harmful to the kidney. People who eat dead crabs may have vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea and other symptoms. Even the half dead 'leg crabs' are not suitable for eating.
