Delicious exotic food can have ingredients like shrimp and crab that are more expensive, according to an article published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
The article said researchers at The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health found that some exotic foods are more pricey than others, including crab legs and shrimpy eggs.
“The results suggest that the quality of the ingredient may not be as important as the price of the food itself,” the authors wrote.
Some people might prefer to buy a dish that costs more than the product is worth, the authors said.
They also said the findings should be taken into consideration when shopping for exotic food.
More to come.
