Wholey Mussel Meat has a sweet and rich taste with a plump, tender texture and orange color. It has a very mild “ocean” flavor with a faintly sweet, mushroom-like undertone. Mussels subtle taste makes them an excellent addition to many dishes, and they will take on the character of the other ingredients they’re combined with. There are a variety of cooking methods for mussels: baking, boiling, broiling, frying, or steaming. Wholey Mussel Meat can be served in a creamy white wine sauce with pasta. It can also be served in paella or a seafood dish.
Mussels are an excellent source of protein, iron, selenium, iodine and omega-3. They are also low in saturated fat, making them a natural gourmet gift you can really feel good about. Mussels are excellent sources of protein, containing all the essential amino acids. Their protein content is superior to that found in fish with fins. The protein in mussels is easy to digest, so the body gets the full benefit. Protein plays multiple roles in your overall health, building muscle, boosting the immune system, strengthening bone, and healing injuries. Just three ounces of mussels provides 40% of the daily protein needed by the average person.
