Taste and Nutrition
Many chefs prefer white shrimp because they have a clean, sweet taste with a classic shrimp flavor and firm texture. They are bluish-gray or greenish-gray when raw but turn pink when cooked. While all shrimp have more cholesterol than other types of seafood, they are lower in total and saturated fat than most meat and poultry.
How They Are Raised
Dairyland Shrimp in Westby, Wisconsin, is the first indoor saltwater shrimp farm in the state, following the lead of several similar farms in Indiana, Iowa, Illinois and Minnesota. Dairyland uses indoor recirculating tanks and a self-sustaining system that uses a bacterial community to break down waste and maintain water quality. Water is reused in the system, minimizing the risk of disease.
