Spanish Iberian Ham de Bellota D.O. Ham of Acorn-fed Iberian pigs. Salted and cured acorrding the traditional and natural way for a period of minimum 3 years.
Its quality is exceptional and endorsed by the regulatory Council ‘Dehesa de Extremadura’.
From Iberian pigs that are raised in freedom on the “Dehesa de Extremadura” (the oak forests of Extremadura) where they enjoy several acres for fattening using acorns (bellotas), grass, roots and herbs.
These animals gain much of their weight in the final fattening phase, called la montanera, which is the use of the Acorn-period between the months of November and March.
The result of the taste of this rear leg is unique and delicious with regular flecks of intramuscular fat which enhances the flavor.
Because the Iberian pigs live on acorns, much of the fat is oleic acid which has been shown to lower LDL cholesterol (the bad) and raise HDL cholesterol (the good).
