DON IBÉRICO Ham, synonym of health
Products derived from the ibérico pig fed exclusively acorns exhibit exceptional nutritional properties, precisely because of the acorns' oleic acid.
The ibérico ham is known for its extraordinary capacity of infiltration into its muscle mass of large amounts of monounsaturated fats, mainly oleic acid, which contribute to lowering the blood's cholesterol levels and protecting against the risk of suffering coronary disease.
A DON IBÉRICO ham, far beyond being a gastronomical product, contains countless virtues directly related with our health.
A DON IBÉRICO ham is not merely a quality product. It is a synonym of HEALTH.
Virtues of an Ibérico Ham
Especially rich in antioxidants, with a high vitamin content, especially those pertaining to the B group and vitamin E as well as folic acid, it especially benefits the nervous system and the proper functioning of the brain.
It is useful in the fight against cardiovascular disease, since the fat is rich in monounsaturated acids and has an elevated oleic acid content.
Low salt level, which makes its scent and flavour stand out and increases its juiciness. High level of proteins.
High mineral content (iron, phosphorous, sodium, potassium, magnesium, copper and zinc), something which is especially positive for the bones and cartilage as well as for brain activity.
Especially helpful during weight-loss diets, since each 100gr. has just 185 calories.
