[MYTH] Many consumers remove the last part of the snails believing that contains the dirts of the mollusc.

[TRUTH]

The last part of the snail is the hepatopancreas, and is distinguished by the sommeliers as the tastiest and smoothest part of the snail, from which is produced a fine and very expensive product: the snail’s foie. Its consumption is of course recommended only from farm snails and not from free breeding snails.
