The present invention relates to a non-heating processing method for edible snail, and the objective thereof is to prevent components that are beneficial to the human body, such as a mucin component, from being destroyed or eliminated by using a non-heating method in which high-temperature heat treatment is not performed in the preparation of edible snails. In order to implement same, the present invention comprises: a shucking step of separating, into meat and shell, snails collected on a farm; a washing step of sanitarily washing the separated-out snail meat by using washing water; a rapid freeze-drying step of rapidly freezing the washed snail meat so as to remove moisture by sublimation in a low-temperature vacuum condition; a drying step of drying the freeze-dried snail meat in order remove residual moisture; a powder processing step of grinding, into a powder form, the snail meat from which moisture has been removed through drying; and a packaging step of packaging the powder into capsules.
