This premium grade jamón de Teruel from Aire Sano, made from the famed large white pig breeds of the Teruel region of western Spain.
The farms of Aire Sano monitor the entire livestock process, from genetic selection to raising and fattening each individual pig. They follow the strictest protocols set by the regulatory board for the Certification of Origin Hams and Shoulders of Teruel. They feed their pigs the grains of their own fields and factories, careful to use only noble grains to ensure the highest nutritional value for their animals. Aire Sano is part of the agrifood division of Tervalis Group, a leader in plant nutrition that has offices and sub-companies throughout Europe, Africa, and South America.
This protected ham comes from free-ranging pigs that are fed on a special diet of at least 50 percent cereal grains grown and harvested in Teruel. The pigs themselves are a blend of Large White and Landrace pigs on the maternal and Duroc pigs on the paternal side. A truly good Jamon de Teruel has visible layers of fat between the muscles folds and has a delicate flavor with minimal saltiness
