Why Choose Deluxe Taste
As the saying goes “ You are what you eat”, the same applies to abalone. DELUXE TASTE abalones are developed in immaculate water and hygienic condition with sufficient space and first rate bolsters.
According to the Chinese “Compendium of Materia Medica”,
abalone has the nurturing ability to re-establish the balance within our body,
it is particularly good for our eyes and liver. Modern western medicine also
revealed that abalone is a good source of protein with low fat content, it is also high in Omega 3, iodine and phosphorus. Omega 3’s anti-inflammatory property can lower the risk of heart disease and arthritis. Iodine is instrumental in the normal functioning of our thyroid glands, whereas phosphorus is vital for our metabolism, especially the growth of bones and teeth.
