When you eat oyster shells, you may be worried about whether or not you will be able to eat them.
This time, we will introduce what to do if you eat oyster shells, the reason why it happens, and what you can do about it!
If you read to the end, you will be able to eat raw oysters more safely and enjoyably, so please read until the end!
What if you eat an oyster shell?
If you eat the shells of raw oysters, there is generally no problem as long as the oysters are clean and have been thoroughly inspected .
Oysters served at oyster bars and oysters shipped directly from the farm for raw consumption are generally safe, as only raw oysters that have passed inspection are served.
In the case of grilled oysters, the norovirus is also killed because it is heated, so it is digested as calcium.
If you are worried, it may be a good idea to take stomach medicine.
Reasons for hitting an oyster shell
1. Licking the mud off oyster shells
Generally, the shells of oysters are thoroughly cleaned before being shipped. However, there may be some mud left on the shell, and if you lick it, you may get hit by the shell and your stomach may drop.
It is common for oyster bars to wash oyster shells thoroughly before serving them, but depending on the location, the shells may not be washed and may be covered in mud.
If you eat the mud attached to such oysters, you may get sick to your stomach, so be careful!
2. Sticking food or chopsticks in oyster shells
Oysters are usually cleaned and sterilized before shipping, but sometimes the shells become dirty during shipping.
When using oyster shells as a plate for sashimi, etc., if the sashimi hits the outside of the oyster shell, your stomach may drop.
If you want to use oyster shells as a plate, sterilize them by soaking them in boiling water before using.
I think this will prevent you from getting hit by oyster shells.
What can I do to avoid getting hit by oyster shells?
To prevent oyster shells from causing stomach upset, when eating raw oysters, rub the oyster shells thoroughly with a scrub brush to remove any dirt.
It's a bit of a hassle, but when you receive your oysters, try washing them so you don't get a stomach ache from eating them and end up not wanting to eat them anymore.
Oysters from the Oyster Young People's Association are thoroughly washed before shipping, so there are very few oysters with mud on them, but I think it would be safer if you scrub them with a scrub brush before eating.
Oyster Young People's Association Shimomura Suisan's oysters are heated immediately after they arrive, but they are still very clean even after they arrive.
Also, when choosing an oyster bar, choose one that has carefully cleaned oyster shells!
Which oysters with beautiful shells do you recommend?
We recommend the oysters produced by the fishermen of the Young Oyster Association as they are thoroughly washed before being delivered to you.
We sell rock oysters in the summer and true oysters in the winter, and the taste is exquisite.
Rock oysters are in season in the summer. Compared to real oysters, they have more volume, meaty texture, and creaminess.
The size of each oyster is also larger than true oysters.
True oysters are in season in winter. They range from bite-sized to large-sized ones, and are a seasonal food that represents winter.
What if you are afraid of being hit by an oyster shell?
Even if you take various measures, there are times when it's still scary!

If it's a processed oyster product, it's thoroughly cooked, so you don't have to worry about it getting hit!
