If the snails are well washed and boiled, there is no danger of eating them. In many countries they are a delicacy and with different spices can be very tasty.
The meat of snails is extremely tasty and healthy. It is high in protein and very low in fats and carbohydrates. 3.53 oz (100 g) of roasted or boiled snails contain only 136 kcal, of which 0.67 oz (19.55) g are protein, 0.14 oz (4.77) g are fat and 0.07 oz (2.43) g are carbohydrates.
The slimy little ones are not only not harmful, but also quite healthy. In addition to their indisputable culinary qualities (still considered a delicacy in France), their mucus has a number of healing properties that scientists continue to study.
Do not eat or touch snails only if you have a proven intolerance to them.
