Doctor’s Tip

Cuttlefish are rich in protein B12, iron, zinc. Although cuttlefish contain cholesterol, their consumption does not significantly affect blood cholesterol. Cuttlefish do not contain saturated fats and their cholesterol content does not make them as unhealthy (for example, red meat with the same cholesterol content is rich in saturated fats ). Our bodies need a balanced amount of cholesterol to function properly.
