More about bérico Bellota products:

Ibérico Bellota pork products are produced through traditional Spanish pig breeding and dry-curing techniques. Ibérico pigs are a small breed of black pigs from the Iberian Peninsula of Spain and Portugal, known as "Pata Negra" in Spanish, which translates to "Black Hoof" in English. These pigs roam in fields and oak forests, feeding on grasses, herbs, and roots. They are able to store fat in their muscle tissue, which is the secret to the delicious flavour and texture of Iberian ham. During the winter, some Pata Negra are fattened on acorns, known in Spanish as "Bellota". Acorns are full of oleic acid (omega 9), which transfers into theIbéricoham, giving it similar properties to Olive Oil, and making it beneficial for cholesterol. These acorn-fed pigs are selected to create Ibérico Bellota ham, which has a famously melt-in-the-mouth buttery texture.
