Oysters are groups of bivalve mollusks, that live inside the water. Their shell has two valves that are calcified and hard. But their body is soft. They are able to filter out plankton from the water, thanks to to their sophisticated gills. Oyster are widely known to carry gem quality pearl, but what else can it offer to us humans? Well some oysters can be eaten. I wish oysters can also offer stuff like money and gold.

Anyways, have you heard about about Be Oyster Aware website yet? If not, please let me explain it for you. It’s a website that provides a lot of information relating to oysters. They offer detail information about Vibrio vulnificus and the health risks it poses to people who consume it. According to them, “eat your savory oyster treats raw, steamed, fried, charbroiled, grilled….whatever your appetite desires, just BE OYSTER AWARE!”

You can be at risk of health threatening disease after eating oysters without you even knowing it. According to them, at-risk consumers can suffer from conditions such as liver diseases, iron overload disease, diabetes, cancer and stomach disorders. According to them, Gulf oysters post-harvest process is one of leading the industry in developing new technologies that will offer less risk alternatives to traditional raw oysters. The process involves three steps of IQF that involves freezing, HCP of heat cool pasteurization and HHP of heat pasteurization.
