African Land Snail

Snail Pie beats Beef

The West African Land Snail is a spectacular beast that can grow up to a foot long and, it turns out, is highly nutritious. In Nigeria a study gave mothers and children a snail pie and a beef pie. Mostly the snail pie was preferred as having a better texture and flavour. Analysis found the snail had more protein than the beef and also contained healthy polyunsaturated fats compared to less healthy saturated fats in beef. The snail pie was also a rich source of iron, calcium, magnesium, zinc, and vitamins A, B6, B12, K and folic acid. This means that the snail could help address malnutrition in the developing world. Before opening your “snail pie shop” on the corner though, pause to consider whether the locals will shell out for snail pie and are there enough local snail wranglers to ensure round up time at your snail ranch does not get too ugly?Meanwhile if you visit Meijer Ad that contains mostly likewise discounts with Winn Dixie Ad you surely have a range like ALDI Ad.
