jamon consejos

Healthy and nutritious

A good plate of Iberico jamón, as well as been a huge gastronomic pleasure, is very nutritious and has some extraordinary qualities to preserve our health.

Its fat composition, rich in monounsaturated fatty, is considered heart-healthy and promotes increased levels of HDL or high density cholesterol as well, in detriment of LDL or low density cholesterol, which is the origin of serious vascular diseases.

Healing process makes a light product, changing its proteins and fats and, in the end, the jamón becomes very digestive and healthy. Furthermore, the jamón has high valuable proteins, vitamins (folic acid and cobalamin) and minerals such as iron, zinc and selenium.

How should the jamón be stored at home?

The jamón should be stored at room temperature, in the cooler, dryier place of the house, without exposing it to extreme conditions. Once we begin to consume it, we have to use bacon cuts of the jamón to cover the cut surface in orden to keep the jamón in good conditions as long as possible, avoiding that the jamón get overly dry and lose flavor and aroma.

What are the white specks that appear in the jamón?


Crystals are mainly formed by an aminoacid (tyrosine). It's not an evidence of alteration of the jamón, but, on the contrary, the presence of these crystals is a sign of a good healing process and an optimum maturation.
