It's low in calories and fat and high in mineral nutrients and amino acids. It contains high amounts of proteins, omega-3 fat, calcium, iron and selenium, as well as ten times fewer bacteria than other types of meat.

Furthermore, as a decrease in the population of edible snails has been observed, their illimitable collection is forbidden by law in Greece, and they are considered to be endangered species and their collection is strictly forbidden in some other countries.
