A heritage to safeguard
Since January 2014 a new law in Spain protects Jamón and valorises this product
Choosing a Jamón Ibérico is easier since a few months ago, thanks to the new rules introduced in January 2014. There are four official classifications, certified by the associations controlling the Denominación de Origen: De puro Iberico 100% de bellota (marked with a black bracelet), De bellota (red bracelet, like in the ham in this photo), De cebo de campo (green bracelet), De cebo (white)
