A REGIONAL government in Spain has come out of its shell and is promoting the message to eat healthily by tucking into snails.
The unconventional advice from the Junta de Andalucia extols the benefits of eating ‘caracoles’ saying: “Do you like snails? You’re lucky! When you eat them, you contribute to your body: Iron, proteins, magnesium, potassium and sodium. Vitamins A, B9, B3, B12 and E.
“And, in addition, they have very few calories: 90Kcal / 100 gms.”
The advice also says that snails contain omega-3 and less than 1g of saturated fat for ever 100 grams.
It remains to be seen if the healthy-eating advice, originally issued by the Hospital Universitario Reina Sofia, will be taken up by many expats though.
