Oysters are not only incredibly delicious, but they’re also one of the most nutritionally well balanced of foods. They contain protein, carbohydrates and lipids, and they’re an ideal food for inclusion in low-cholesterol diets.
Oysters are an excellent source of vitamins A, B1(thiamin), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), C (ascorbic acid) and D (calciferol), and four or five medium size oysters supply the recommended daily allowance of iron, copper, iodine, magnesium, calcium, zinc, manganese and phosphorus.
