Snails are an excellent source of iron, and other essential minerals like phosphorus and potassium. A 100 grams of snail contains 250 milligrams of magnesium, 382 milligrams of potassium as beef, also contains 1.4 grams of fat.
I love snail a lot, mostly when it is spicy either grilled or cooked in a sauce or stir-fried. They also contain 16.5 grams of protein/100 grams and 90 calories, and 2 grams of carbohydrate.
