2014 sofi Winner
Outstanding Meat, Pâté or Seafood
Company: Wagshal’s Imports
As a descendant of the wild boar, Ibérico de Bellota pigs are native to the Ibérian Peninsula and they are the last free-range hog in Europe. They graze on herbs and acorns (bellota), giving them a buttery flavor. In addition to developing a superior taste, Ibérico’s diet leads to high levels of oleic acid and monounsaturated fat, both of which have health benefits.
MSRP: $19.99/8 ounce.
