HISTORYThis is the cured loin of the Ibérico pig, which is flavored with paprika both on the rind and in grain of the meat, as is customary in Spain. The only purebred loin in the U.S. market, Lomo is extremely tender and flavorful. Ibérico pigs roam on almost one million acres of Dehesa (oak forest) in the Valle de Los Pedroches in the province of Cordoba in Andalucia, Spain. Each pig has almost 2 acres to itself and feasts on acorns from Encina Oak trees, which are considered to be the sweetest in Spain. All Dehesa Cordobesa® products are de Bellota 100% Ibérico, which means the 100% purebred Ibérico pigs finish their lives eating acorns until they reach the correct weight for slaughter (min 3-4 months).  The fat in the meat is high in oleic acid and Omega-3 fatty acids, both thought to help decrease bad cholesterol. 
HANDLINGStore in a cool, dry place. Trim casing before sampling. 
SERVINGSSlice thinly and serve at room temperature. Add to a tapas plate or layer slices upon an egg sandwich for added flavor.
