Snail meat contains protein, fat (mainly polyunsaturated fatty acid), iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, zinc, vitamins A, B6, B12, K and folate. It also contains the amino acids arginine and lysine at higher levels than in whole egg. It also contains healthy essential fatty acids such as linoleic and linolenic acids. The high-protein, low-fat content of snail meat makes it a healthy alternative food.

The meat of snail is considered to be high quality food packed with protein and is also a great source of iron. It contains 15% protein, 80% water and 2.4% fat which make it an alternative food for people requiring high protein low fat diet. Snails are also a good source of iron, essential for building red blood cells and carrying energy around the body. 

Snails contain a lot of protein and essential amino acids. Even meat extract and snail slime contain benefits for treating the lining inflammation of the eye, pain due to menstruation, itching, and toothache. Snails are also a good source of magnesium, which our bodies need to maintain normal blood pressure, strengthen bones and also keep your heartbeat regular. They also provide vitamin B12 for making red blood cells, keeping the nervous system healthy, releasing energy from the food we eat and processing folic acid.
