So, what is helix pomatia?

Helix pomatia is a type of edible snail that is native to the Mediterranean region. Commonly known as the "Roman snail," it is characterized by its large, spiral shell that can reach up to 10cm in diameter. The snail's flesh is considered a delicacy in many parts of Europe and is often used in traditional dishes such as escargot. Helix pomatia has a slightly sweet and earthy flavor with a chewy texture. It is high in protein, low in fat, and rich in essential minerals such as iron, zinc, and calcium. Despite its popularity as a culinary ingredient, helix pomatia is also valued for its ecological role in maintaining soil fertility and biodiversity.
