The nutritive and market value of meat of edible garden snail from northern Turkey was deter-mined. Protein, fat, ash, water and carbohydrate value of edible garden snail were found 9.87, 0.58, 1.07, 82.50 and 5.99 % wet weight, respectively. The results of this study have showed that garden snails are good sources of amino acid, fatty acid, vitamins and minerals. The ly-sine, isoleucine and leucine content from essential amino acids were 721, 467.57 and 611.50 mg/100g, respectively. The major amino acids detected were aspartic acid (996.814 mg/100g), glutamic acid (1405.158 mg/100g), alanine (1063.877 mg/100g), serine (1039.248 mg/100g). Total saturated fatty acid, monounsaturated fatty acid and polyunsaturated fatty acid were de-termined 28, 76, 20.66 and 34.38 %. The vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin B1, B2, B3 and B6 of vitamins were 5.462, 0.887, 0.154, 0.065, 3.226 and 0.288 mg/100g wet wt, respectively. Min-eral analysis of garden snails showed that they are rich in calcium and potassium (1357 and 1054 mg/kg) and low in iron (5.21 mg/kg).
