The world's best pork comes from Spain. Its source is black pigs, which walk miles of pasture daily in search of their favorite acorns. Both movement and diet are significant. For it is thanks to them that we have the unique taste and appearance of meat. Activity and genetic conditioning cause fat to be stored in muscle tissue, creating a marbled texture. And they also contribute to the incredible tenderness, tenderness and juiciness of each cut. They are raised traditionally on small farms, which guarantees supervision and guarantees the origin and breed of cerdo iberico.
Proven iberico pork farmer
The iberico pork producer from whom we buy the meat available in our offer is a family-owned company that has been handling iberico pork for several generations. It has two farms called "Dehesas." All the animals grow up in the southwestern part of Extremadura, where they graze in the wild among oak trees that provide great acorns. "Dehesas" have an ideal climate and are the best natural areas for raising Iberian pigs. It is also on these farms, surrounded by Mediterranean forests, that the company produces its own natural feed. It is ideal for livestock. It is natural, obtained from a strict selection of grains, produced on site in the company's own mill. All production is under full control: from animal breeding to slaughtering, cutting and distribution guaranteeing the highest quality meat.
Fat not so scary
Pork iberico is like wagyu when it comes to beef. Because the carrier of flavor is fat, marbled meat is particularly flavorful. And iberico pork just enjoys a very beautiful marbling. What does this term mean? The characteristic marbling is intermuscular fat, or white strands in the meat. The content of intermuscular fat is determined by the distribution of fat particles and its overall content in the meat. The more uniform the distribution of fat in the muscle, the greater the looseness of the tissue and, therefore, the tenderness of the meat. Marbled meat is therefore extremely flavorful and juicy. In addition, most of the fats contained in this pork are healthy omega fats, which our body needs to function properly.
