Iberian ham is a type of ham from the Iberian pig breed, highly appreciated in Spanish and Portuguese gastronomy, which is considered a high-end product and an exquisite delicacy.

For its elaboration it is necessary that the piece has at least 50% purity of this breed to be called "Iberian ham", although the best quality hams are the 100% Iberian hams coming from Iberian pigs of which both parents are 100% Iberian breed.

The main characteristics that distinguish the quality of Iberian hams arise from the purity of the breed of the animals, from the extensive outdoor breeding of Iberian pigs in wooded pastures where they can move freely and exercise, from the diet pig food during the “montanera” period and, finally, the curing of the ham, which generally lasts between 24 and 48 months; the longer the maturation, the larger the size of the piece and the more acorns or nuts the pig has eaten.
