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


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.
