Nutritional values

The noble mussels are low-fat and supply high-quality protein, which is needed to build body protein and muscles. They also contain a lot of selenium and almost twice as much zinc per piece as the daily requirement demands. Both trace elements strengthen the body's defences and have a soothing effect on stress.
