Large Cuttlefish (In Marathi it is called Makul) weighing around a kilo each available. It’ll be cleaned as per request and sent.
Cuttlefish are a type of mollusk with 10 legs, similar to a large squid or octopus but more tender, although they still need to be tenderized before cooking to keep them from being too chewy. These mollusks are nutritious when consumed occasionally in moderation, since they provide relatively high levels of a number of essential vitamins and minerals, but they do have higher contaminant levels than some other mollusks.
Each 3-ounce serving of cooked cuttlefish contains 134 calories, 28 grams of protein, 1 gram of carbohydrate and 1 gram of fat. Although quite low in fat, a portion of the fat they contain consists of essential omega-3 fatty acids, with 11 percent eicosapentaenoic acid, or EPA, and 24.5 percent docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA. These omega-3 fats may help lower your heart disease risk by improving triglyceride levels and lowering your risk for blood clots, clogging of the arteries, arrhythmia and high blood pressure.
Cuttlefish are a good source of vitamins. Each serving provides 1.5 milligrams of riboflavin, or 86 percent of the daily value; 4.6 micrograms of vitamin B-12, or 77 percent of the DV; 7.2 milligrams of vitamin C and 0.2 milligrams of vitamin B-6, or 12 percent of both DVs; and 574 international units of vitamin A, or 11 percent of the DV. Riboflavin is essential for metabolism, vitamin B-12 is needed for forming red blood cells and your body uses vitamin C for healing wounds and repairing tissues. Vitamin B-6 plays a role in immune function and vitamin A is necessary for proper vision.
These mollusks also provide significant amounts of essential minerals. Each serving provides 76.2 milligrams of selenium, or 109 percent of the DV for this mineral that acts as an antioxidant and limits cell damage from free radicals. A 3-ounce serving of cuttlefish also provides 9.2 milligrams of iron, or 51 percent of the DV; 493 milligrams of phosphorus, or 49 percent of the DV; 0.8 milligrams of copper, or 40 percent of the DV; 2.9 milligrams of zinc, or 35 percent of the DV; 153 milligrams of calcium and 541 milligrams of potassium, or 15 percent of the both DVs; and 51 milligrams of magnesium, or 13 percent of the DV. However, cuttlefish are also high in sodium, with 632 milligrams per serving, or 26 percent of the daily value.
