HAM HEALTH BENEFITS
The brand “Jamón de Teruel” is a synonym for quality, differentiated thanks to the work of its Regulatory Committee (Jamón de Teruel is a EU Protected Origin Designation). This body also publicises and promotes the virtues of the product, some of which are well known, and others which may surprise you. For example, did you know that eating Jamón de Teruel P.D.O ham can help mental ability, especially in children, thanks to its high zinc content? (2.3 mg. per 100 grams). Also, Jamón de Teruel P.D.O ham provides exceptional nutritional value, being rich in proteins, B-group vitamins and minerals such as zinc and iron. The zinc content helps mental abilities, as shown by a study in the University of Southern California, and supported by the US Agricultural Research Service.
Given the lipid profile of Jamón de Teruel ham, its cardiovascular benefits, nutrient density and mineral and vitamin levels, it should be considered a complete, well-balanced food, heart-healthy, and suitable for inclusion in the nutritional guidelines of the Mediterranean Diet.
