Korean cooking forum topics:
recently a friend recommend me to try sea urchin roe . She said is good for women health but could not tell me in detail . does any one know the health benefits of sea urchin roe . thanks
I’m not aware of any health benefits to the roe. Some roe have decent amounts of vitamins and good fats, but there’s nothing specifically in roe that can’t be found in other meats or vegetables. More than likely, your friend’s advice stems from the fact that roe is part of the urchin’s reproductive system. A lot of cultures attribute healing properties of animals to corresponding body parts and systems in humans. For example, claiming bull penis will increase your sex life, consuming meat from large predators will give you strength, or drinking turtles blood will grant longevity.
There have, however, been talks about tofu helping with menopause because of the presence of plant-derived estrogen.
Yes, I have also heard of many folk remedies like this, ie. rhino horn. I have also heard about the benefits of soy for women, although, I have heard that men should not consume too much soy. Who knows… they come out with new reports all the time. Don’t drink coffee! Drink coffee! Don’t eat eggs! Eat eggs! Everything in moderation I guess.
Sea Urchin is delicious though! It can be an acquired taste, but you should try it! It literally tastes like the ocean.
