Fun Facts About Oysters
Oysters come with a surprising amount of benefits not just to you but to the environment. For instance, oysters contain more zinc than any other food. Zinc can help protect your immune system, get rid of acne, ease rashes, and make your bones stronger! And when oysters are in the water, they can filter about 30 to 50 gallons of water each day.
Additionally, America holds the distinction of pioneering the combo of oysters and beer. This trend began in the 19th-century taverns of New York and eventually traveled through bars down into New Orleans. At Oyster Jam, we celebrate that classic combination of oysters and cold, tasty beer.
