Snails are a gourmet and very nutrional type of food that is good for your health. They are low in calories but they contain high inorganic nutrients, essential amino acids and fatty acids that are beneficial to our body. They are rich in protein and valuable salts, low in fat (4 times less than beef and 6 time less that cheese). Their nutritional value is enhanced by the fact that proteins composed of the amino acids are needed by the human body and also they have 10 times fewer bacteria than other meats.

The fat of the snails is also beneficial, because it provides us with Omega 3 fatty acids, which humans can not synthesize and therefore must be taken through a well balanced a diet. Furtheromore, they are considered to inhibit atherosclerosis and thrombosis and have anti-inflammatory effects, preventive allergies, depression, and other diseases of the nervous system.

Snail meat is a good source of calcium and phosphorus, two very important ingredients for bone growth, as well as magnesium, potassium and sodium. Finally, snails are an important source of amino acids and calcium during periods of fasting, when meat and dairy products are not consumed.
