Shrimp contains zero carbs, and is also very low in calories (approximately 1 calorie/1 gram of shrimp). As an organic life form, shrimp is packed with protein and is composed primarily of water, but there is also a small amount of fat as well. However, the most beneficial aspect of shrimp is the treasure trove of vitamins and nutrients that it contains. You can fill out your daily mineral intake of iron, calcium, sodium, phosphorus, zinc, magnesium, and potassium, along with vitamin A, vitamin E, and B6, and even vitamin B12! Shrimp also contains iodine, thiamin, riboflavin, and niacin.
Chenin Blanc from the Loire Valley in France is a good option because it has a sweet, honeyed. stone-fruit flavor.
