Although we tend to think that fat is bad for our body, fat is necessary in any balanced diet. Before joining any fashion or food trend, it is best to inform ourselves well. There is a saturation of “you can’t, because it makes you fat or increases cholesterol”, used to discriminate some foods. For example, there are those who remove the fat from our coveted Iberico ham, one of the great treasures of gastronomy.
The quality of our 100% Iberico acorn-fed ham is unique thanks to the genetics of the Iberico pig and its diet, which is based on what our fields (the Dehesa) produce and, of course, acorns, which are their main food during his last months at the time of the Montanera. The acorns contain an amount of oleic acid greater than 60%, which is why the fat of the Iberico pig is especially rich in this fatty acid.
