1. Mussel nutritional value
Eating mussels (mussels) is not only delicious, but also has great effects on beauty and health. Due to its high nutritional value and low calorie content, it is also attracting attention as an ideal diet food.
Mussels are rich in high quality protein and fat, as well as minerals, calcium and vitamins. It is a good food for women.
In addition to omega-3 fatty acids, which do not increase cholesterol levels, vitamin B12, which repairs cell damage in the brain and nerves, is well above the recommended daily intake. It also contains iodine, selenium, copper and iron. In addition, it contains amino acids, including essential amino acids.
At the bottom of the food chain, mussels do not ingest toxins such as mercury. Including mussels regularly in your diet makes a positive contribution to a healthy diet.
2. Sea purification function of 40,000 liters per mussel
The mussels themselves also filter excess seawater nitrogen through their shells during the approximately two years of their growth before they are eaten by humans. Mussel’s ability to improve water quality can purify 40,000 liters of seawater per grain (20,000 2-liter plastic bottles). It is more than 130 times more than seaweed, and while it is a “sustainable delicacy of the sea”, it is also a “sustainable honor student of the sea” that keeps the sea clean and protects the environment.
It also has amazing potential and efficacy to provide humans with proteins, fats and essential nutrients while cleaning our oceans. [Image 5
■ ABOUT GOTOBAR About Gotoba
GOTOBAR Co., Ltd., “delivers a sustainable and rich lifestyle through shellfish food culture.”
“I will tell you about the shellfish food culture in Europe.” It is not enough to simply grow shellfish sustainably in Europe and import them, but in addition to the actors who support them, we believe that it is necessary to introduce how to enjoy shellfish and convey the story. It’s already possible to enjoy oysters from overseas at oyster bars in Japan, but it’s hard to find a bucket full of delicious live mussels. If that is the case, I believe that the role of 5108 is to prepare fresh fresh mussels, sake that complements each other, and tools and cutlery for eating shellfish to enjoy them.
“Our role is not to create something from scratch, but to fill in the asymmetry of information. Rather than introducing things that are there and not here, we introduce culture and let it take root. People. However, it is to prepare an environment where you can meet pleasures that you did not know until then and feel happiness.” And we have a vision to introduce this shellfish food culture to Japan, which has a shellfish food culture that has been around since the Jomon period. It has been done. Best regard.
