The characteristics of the Ibérico pig, with its long legs and strong, are the result of its perfect integration into its environment. The pigs are fed with grass and stubble to wild legumes but, above all, with acorns, which are the high-fat fruits of the holm and cork oaks. 

This natural food from the "Dehesa" is the mean reason for the excellent organoleptic qualities of the pork. These animals are able to store fatty deposits infiltrated into their muscles, making the meat especially moist and tender.

Jamón Ibérico de Bellota (ham) is low in calories and provides many vitamins: B1, B6, B12 and folic acid. It is also rich in vitamin E, calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium, phosphorus and finally, selenium, which has been attributed with antiaging properties. Ibérico bellota ham can be included in low calorie diets.

Iberico ham has a considerable amount of fat with a high composition of oleic acid, typical of olive oil. This makes your body produce more good HDL, at the same time reducing the amount of bad LDL; reducing the risk of illnesses of this type.
