Dehesa de Cantillana's Iberico ham comes from their black pigs that roam freely on their estate and that eat exclusively acorns and grass. The ham is ideal being part of a balanced and healthy diet, due to its exceptionally high nutrients. Their cutting master slices the hams manually and packages them in vacuum packs so they do not lose any of their taste or aroma. You can see the flecks of white fat in the paper-thin mahogany slices that are characteristic of their best acorn-fed ham. 

Tasting notes:

  • Eye: The fat is rosy, glistening, fluid and soft to the touch, showing good infiltration; dark red and very intense colour; intense shine, as the inter-muscular fat is rich in non-saturated acid lipids, which intensify the experience
  • Nose: Intense and nutty, like the acorn
  • Palate: Intense flavour with a nutty ending
  • Texture: Smooth and not fibrous

Net weight: 100 g

Ingredients: Ham of Iberico pigs, marine salt and preservatives: E-252, E-250.

Origin: Extremadura, Spain

Preserving recommendations: 5-10º

Health

100 gr of Iberico ham equal 33% of the recommended daily intake of proteins.

The Ibérico ham is a gastronomic delicacy and is among the healthiest food products from Spain. According to scientific studies, the products derived from the Iberian pig not only do not increase the cholesterol, but actually help to reduce it, due to the non-saturated fats contained in the meta as well as other beneficial components thanks to the particular rearing conditions and the specific breed.

The process of curing the ham actually increases its content in proteins and decreases the fat contents, hence a higher level of freshness and less fattening than fresh ham. Its proteins are of high value, rich in essential amino acids.

The ham also contains non-saturated acid lipids similar to those found in olive oil and which favour digestion, as well as vitamins B1 and B6, phosphor, iron, potassium and zinc. And although it is cured with salt, its contents of this mineral are minimal.

In terms of energy values, 100 gr. of Ibérico ham provide you with 43 gr. of proteins and less than 250 kcal, which is why small amounts are also recommendable for hypo caloric diets.

Other valuable nutrients apart from the mentioned above are vitamin B12 as well as folic acid, very beneficial for the nervous system and for the brain, vitamin E, a key antioxidant, copper, essential for bones and cartilages, calcium, magnesium and selenium, the latter very important to fight the aging process.
