Mussels are in particular an inestimable source of omega-3 fatty acids, which studies show helps in development of the brain and visual acuity, as well as in the prevention of heart disease (eating a serving of mussels once or twice a week could reduce your risk of dying of heart attack by a third or more). Mussels are a very good source of zinc (needed for immune system strength in fighting infections and aids in overall brain function), thiamin, riboflavin, folate and potassium. Mussels are an excellent source of vitamin B12, iron, phosphorus, manganese and selenium.
Our fresh mussels are delivered live directly from the fishing areas around the Prince Edward Island in Canada or on the Washington state coast. Without contest, the mussel is the healthiest and most ecofriendly organic product available on our menu.
