Health benefits of iberian ham
Healthy product in the Mediterranean diet
Señorio de Montanera 100% acorn-fed Iberian ham is a source of protein and contains an elevated oleic acid level. Moderate consumption is therefore a very healthy pleasure.
The attributes of the acorns and of the Iberian breed make Señorio de Montanera ham a product with great health benefits.
The high percentages of mono-unsaturated fats and tocopherols act as powerful natural antioxidants which, as well as contributing to the exquisite flavour, provide protection against heart disease, regulating our metabolism and helping to reduce cholesterol levels, in a similar way to olive oil, thus making ham one of most complete foods in the Mediterranean diet.
