Are Oysters Alive When You Eat Them?
by: Amanda Bochain
Raw oysters are certainly a food like no other. They are housed in hard, rough shells yet very smooth when opened, served immediately after being cracked and have such a unique texture and taste. One part of that description is what we are going to talk about here- they are served immediately after they are opened. So….are they still alive when they are shucked to eat?
So to once again answer the question, yes, oysters are alive when eaten immediately after being shucked. And the truth is, we wouldn’t have it any other way! The amazing flavors of raw oysters and the overall experience of eating raw oysters is something that you must try.
