Properties and Benefits of Iberian Ham from Monesterio
Is the fat in Iberian ham healthy?
As has been shown in scientific studies, the fats of acorn-fed Iberian pigs have more than 55% oleic acid, produce a beneficial effect on blood cholesterol and raise the level of “good” cholesterol (HDL).
Source of vitamins and minerals
Iberian ham provides proteins, vitamins B1, B6, B12 and folic acid, necessary for a good brain function. It is also rich in vitamin E (antioxidant) and minerals such as copper, calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium, phosphorus and selenium.
Compatible with low calorie diets
For every 100 grams of acorn-fed Iberian ham, the caloric intake is about 250 kcal, so a moderate consumption will not harm low-calorie diets.
