Bellota 50% Ibérico Ham - Extremadura, Cácerez/Badajoz

In order for a ham to be considered bellota ibérica, it must exceed 50% purity and must have been fattened in the last stage freely in the montanera. There is a very special pig race on the Iberian Peninsula, the Iberian pig. It has a number of characteristics that make it different from all other pigs, but there's one essential characteristic: it infiltrates fat into its muscles. That is what creates those white veins in a paleta ibérica which make it a unique product.

The degree of purity of a pig's race obviously depends on the purity of its parents. Thus, any pig that exceeds 50% purity can be considered an Iberian pig. The mother must be 100% pure. The first one hundred kilos of any Iberian pig are gained in the same way as any other pig. First, it is fed by its mother and later it is fed vitamin-enhanced feed. A proper diet is essential for the animal to become strong and muscular with resistant bones.
