 General description:

Cascumpec Bay Oyster Company, a boutique-style, family-run business located on Prince Edward Island, is committed to growing and packing oysters of the finest quality in a safe and sustainable manner. Our cultured oysters go through the tumbling process every year to encourage deep, round growth and a strong shell. Combine this with a great meat-yield and flavour to match, Cascumpec oysters prove popular among shuckers and consumers alike.

Main characteristics:

Cascumpec Bay and Foxley River oysters make for a well-balanced, creamy oyster with a uniform shell.

Health benefits + nutrition facts:

The impressive health benefits of oysters come from their vast stockpiles of minerals, vitamins, and organic compounds. In fact, certain minerals are in their highest content in oysters, particularly, zinc. The other components include very high levels of protein, vitamin D, vitamin B12, iron, copper, manganese, and selenium. They also contain high levels of niacin, riboflavin, thiamin, vitamin C, phosphorus, potassium, and sodium. Finally, they are a huge source of beneficial cholesterol, antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, and water. These elements make them an extremely healthy food that can boost your body’s overall function and health.
