While there are labels certifying the quality of this product, the scallop is a veritable treasure trove of vitamins and proteins. Vitamin B12, Omega 3 fatty acids, iodine, phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, zinc… This shellfish is a veritable treasure trove for our taste buds and our health.
It should nevertheless be noted that this shellfish has benefited from the Label Rouge “Coquille St-Jacques fraîche et entière” since 2002. This label is awarded by the French Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries.
In 2009, the Label Rouge “Noix de coquille St-Jacques Pecten maximus fraîche” was awarded to detailed scallops. This appellation, derived from the shell’s scientific name, distinguishes scallops from imported scallops.
