The snails we sell are from the wild and natural environment.

Snails are considered delicacies in Portugal and in several countries around the world, with special focus on Europe. Served as appetizer, snack and in some cases as a main course, snails are a food that, besides being very tasty, is extremely high in protein, low in calories and fat.
Due to its high content of vitamins C and D, as well as essential amino acids, and according to several scientific research studies, regular intake of snails, contributes to the well being and prevents diseases such as cardiovascular accidents.
