MUSSELS ARE SUPER HEALTHY AND ARE CONSIDERED TO HAVE THE MOST IMPRESSIVE NUTRITIONAL PROFILE OF ALL SHELLFISH!
High in protein – low in saturated fats and calories
One of the nutritional benefits of eating mussels is increased protein intake. Proteins help maintain the function of every cell in your body. Gram for gram, fresh mussel meat provides the same amount of high-quality protein as red meat but much less fat, particularly ‘bad’ or saturated fat, and mussel meat contains far fewer calories than most types of red meat. Consuming foods rich in high-quality protein, such as mussels, as part of a heart-healthy, high-fibre diet, may offer other health benefits such as aiding weight management.
Mussels are low in total and saturated fats but are one of the richest shellfish sources in heart-healthy, long-chain unsaturated fatty acids, collectively known as Omega-3 fatty acids. Studies have shown that eating foods high in Omega-3 fatty acids can reduce the risk factors for heart disease by reducing triglyceride levels (levels of fat) in the bloodstream. These benefits can contribute to a reduced risk of heart attack, stroke and abnormal heart rhythms in people who have already experienced a heart attack.
As well as cardio-protective properties, these fats have many other benefits, including improving brain function and reducing inflammatory conditions, such as rheumatoid and osteoarthritis.
