If you are one of the many diners that resists the idea of eating a plate of garden animals, think again because the snails have come out of their shell and are enjoying being the new star food.
We also tell you 6 benefits that snails have.
"Although they are not going to occupy a prominent place on my list of 10 favorite foods," admits nutritionist Rob Hobson of Healthspan. "Snails provide a low-calorie source of protein (unless you add butter or some other seasoning)."
Protein is essential to build and repair muscles, and it is also better to fill you than carbohydrates and fat. Many people consider seafood to be an easy source of protein, but in reality, snails have more.
The acclaimed nutritionist adds that snails are also a good source of iron, essential for building red blood cells and transporting energy throughout the body.
Lack of iron can cause extreme fatigue and anemia.
3. Vitamin B12
Often cited as the "energy vitamin," vitamin B12 is needed to make red blood cells, keep the nervous system healthy, release energy from the food we eat and process folic acid. Luckily, snails have a lot.
Snails are also a good source of magnesium, which our body needs to maintain normal blood pressure, strengthen bones and also maintain a regular heart rate.
We do not need a lot of selenium in our bodies, but we do need something to maintain a healthy immune system and to protect cells against damage. And yes, snails contain selenium.
Oh, the very dear, heart-loving fatty acids. "The snails also supply a bit of Omega-3," says Hobson, "which is good news for your heart."
