Snails La Costa. Our Product.
Our product is the snail from farm or breeding snail. This one has got a series of features which differenciate it from the wild snail. At the consumption moment it is more uniform in size, colour, taste and texture. Its flesh is whitener and tasty due to a diet based on balanced fodders with a 30% of calcium which makes its shell much more resistant to the handling and cooking.
“Helix Aspersa Müller” is the chosen species for the breeding in our farm. This snail has a great capacity to adapt to different weather. Its size goes from 28 to 35 mm and its weight from 7 to 15 grs.
Our snails follow a controlled diet based mainly on fodders with exact percentages which are requested to our supplier and vegetables grown by ourselves. Thanks to this, we obtain a snail of the highest quality:
● Nearly white body, with a 35 % more of flesh than the wild snail.
● Specially resistant shell which guarantees the cleaning and handling without breaks.
● White slime which is reached by means of a continuous purgation. This helps with the cleaning.
In order to supply the market with a high quality product, our snails go through strict health inspections (water, parasites, bacteria, etc) For this reason, we follow the hygienic pack elaborated by the European Union to guarantee a high level of health protection of the consumers. All these standards lead us to a strict control of food in every productive stage.
