Abstract

AMINO ACID, FATTY ACID, VITAMIN AND MINERAL CONTENTS OF THE EDIBLE GARDEN SNAIL (Helix aspersa)

The nutritive and market value of meat of edible garden snail from northern Turkey was deter-mined. Protein, fat, ash, water and carbohydrate value of edible garden snail were found 9.87, 0.58, 1.07, 82.50 and 5.99 % wet weight, respectively. The results of this study have showed that garden snails are good sources of amino acid, fatty acid, vitamins and minerals. The ly-sine, isoleucine and leucine content from essential amino acids were 721, 467.57 and 611.50 mg/100g, respectively. The major amino acids detected were aspartic acid (996.814 mg/100g), glutamic acid (1405.158 mg/100g), alanine (1063.877 mg/100g), serine (1039.248 mg/100g). Total saturated fatty acid, monounsaturated fatty acid and polyunsaturated fatty acid were de-termined 28, 76, 20.66 and 34.38 %. The vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin B1, B2, B3 and B6 of vitamins were 5.462, 0.887, 0.154, 0.065, 3.226 and 0.288 mg/100g wet wt, respectively. Min-eral analysis of garden snails showed that they are rich in calcium and potassium (1357 and 1054 mg/kg) and low in iron (5.21 mg/kg).
