Incredible Health Benefits of Mussels

Prise open a mussel shell and you won’t just find a tasty sweet morsel... you’ll discover one of nature’s ultimate superfoods, packed with vitamins and minerals that your body needs.

Introducing mussels into your diet can bring a whole host of unexpected health benefits. And being quick to cook, cheap to buy and sustainably harvested means eating mussels is a no brainer.

Healthy fast food mussels

Healthy fast food

Mussels are a fast food you can feel good about.

They make a super-satisfying snack or protein-rich meal you can whip up in minutes. And you’ll love knowing they are overflowing with nutrients your body needs.

And best of all, you don’t need to add oil or butter. Steam. Toss in a sauce. And dinner is on the table. Simple, healthy and delicious.

Completely natural

Completely natural - nothing added

What’s not inside a mussel is just as important as what grows inside.

Our mussels are certified organic and are naturally gluten free.

We don’t add any preservatives or artificial flavours.

So you can trust that you are getting only the best that nature has to offer.

Better mussels, better for you

Mussels naturally contain an impressive amount of vitamins and minerals. And with only the finest mussels in every packet of our Eyre Peninsula Seafoods products, they are just too good to resist.

Some of the health benefits of mussels include:

  • More protein and iron than fillet of steak! You can get a protein fix for muscle development and you’ll feel fuller for longer.
  • Omega 3 fatty acids which are brilliant for improving brain function and reducing inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis.
  • Vitamins A and B12 – which your skin, eyes and immune system will thank you for.
  • Zinc to aid in building a strong immune system.
  • Iodine which is needed to regulate your thyroid hormones. These hormones control the body’s metabolism.
  • Selenium for healthy, glowing skin.

Mussels are low in fat… but high in flavour. Add a few herbs and you can dig into a healthy meal that packs a flavour punch.

Mussels locked in goodness

Locked in goodness

What truly makes our mussels sweet, creamy and tender is the process we have developed to keep each and every mussel in its optimum condition as it journeys from water to plate.

When we harvest the mussels, they undergo an intensive process. Within hours of removing from the ocean to clean, scrub and debeard the mussels before we package them up. By minimising the processing time, we maximise the natural flavours in our mussels. And your taste buds are the winners!

We use our innovative SeaSure process to seal in the flavour. It keeps the mussels alive and extends the life of the mussel during the journey. We keep our mussels at the perfect temperature, preventing them from opening or becoming stressed. A happy mussel – chilled and safely held together – is a healthy mussel.

Busy? Aren’t we all! Since we came out of a lockdown it can feel like the days are moving faster and we have less time to do those things that are important to our health. Whilst the lockdowns were hard, we found we had more time and more reason to make time for our own wellbeing and that of our two children. Mussels for the family meal became the norm.
