Lobster Used To Be Cheap — Here’s How That Changed

Even if you don’t enjoy lobster (and I don’t, particularly), more than perhaps any other food it’s synonymous with a certain kind of luxury. But it wasn’t always that way. In fact, for a long time it was just the opposite.

I knew about the change, but not specifically why.

So much of the world changed, thanks to the period starting with the first World War to the 1950s.  Men having short hair and no facial hair was due to the survivors of World War I – they’d learnt about mites and lice in the trenches.  Elements of Santa Claus came from Krampus, but the colour – the red and white – is attributed to Coca-Cola ads in the late 1940s/early 1950s.

There is vitamin K in lobster.  For 150 grams/5.3 ounces of lobster, there’s 0.2 mcg of vitamin K.  By the math, 1 kg/2.2 lbs of lobster would contain a little under 1.5 mcg of vitamin K.  Under 4 mcg is considered low risk for warfarin/coumadin interference.
