Like other shellfish, scallops are highly nutritious, low in calories and fat, and full of beneficial minerals and vitamins. A 85 gram serving has just 94 calories and 1.2 grams of fat with a high level of protein at 19.5 grams. Scallops are also a good source of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids – one serving has 333 milligrams. They are also high in zinc, copper, and vitamin B12, all of which assist in brain development, reducing the risk of mental decline and mood issues. Finally, they are an excellent source of selenium, which promotes proper thyroid function and a healthy immune system. Scallops are low in sodium and saturated fats and are more than 80% protein. Scallops are one of the cleanest shellfish available. The abductor muscle is not used to filter water, so scallops are not susceptible to toxins or contaminants they way that other shellfish may be.
