Mussles are rich in selenium, iron, folic acid, vitamin A, vitamin B12, iodine and zinc. High level of chemical iodine might have a positive impact on people with sub-optimal thyroid function. Razor shells are culinary delicacy, but sometimes it may be difficult to find them. We wish you luck in fish market, otherwise we suggest that you substitute them with clams or Noah’s Ark shells.
