The soft fleshy texture and delicately mild sweet flavor of scallops are enjoyed by even those who are not particularly fond of fish or other shellfish. Scallops are an excellent source of several trace minerals, including selenium, zinc and copper. These minerals are important to human health, yet some people may not get enough of them. Adequate selenium intake promotes a healthy immune system and proper thyroid function. Zinc is necessary for brain function and healthy growth, and copper may protect against diabetes and heart disease.
Including scallops in your diet can provide you with these important trace minerals, as well as high-quality protein and anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids. Low in calories and high in protein, scallops may be helpful if you’re trying to lose weight.
