Spanish serrano ham is a product with a high nutritional value, recommended for all types of diets and for all population groups. From a nutritional point of view, the curing process has a positive effect on the proteins and fats of ham which make it a relatively light product, with more proteins and less fats than the fresh product. Its proteins are of high quality as they contain all essential amino acids (110g of Spanish serrano ham correspond to 33% of the daily recommended dietary allowance for protein).
Furthermore, Spanish serrano ham is a product which does not contain any colorants. It is easy to digest and healthy. It contains unsaturated fat and is rich in B-complex vitamins (B1, B3 and B6), phosphorus, iron, potassium and zinc. In fact, according to a study by the Grand Forks Human Nutrition Research Centre, Spanish Serrano ham is highly recommended to delay the onset of fatigue in athletes due to its high content in vitamins and minerals.
It also provides a reasonable amount of fatty acids, similar to olive oil. Finally, although it is cured in salt, it contains a low amount of this mineral. Eating a couple of slices or three of Spanish Serrano ham is equivalent to ingesting 3 g of salt a week
