Denomination of Origin of Iberian hams: Huelva, Guijuelo, Extremadura and Pedroches

denominación de origen jamon iberico

Protected Designation of Origin of Iberian Ham on hams, palettes and loins.

Protected Designations of Origin (PDO) establish a quality system that originate a differentiated recognition of a product over other similar ones due to its intrinsic characteristics due in part to the geographic location where the raw materials are produced and the products are produced.

In Spain there are 4 Denominations of Origin that regulate the Iberian Ham: PDO Dehesa of Extremadura, PDO Los Pedroches, PDO Ham of Huelva and PDO Guijuelo.

These Denominations of Origin are regulated by Royal Decree 4/2014, of January 10, which approves the quality standard for meat, ham the trowel and Iberian loin cane.

In Spanish Ham we inform you about the different Appellations of Origin on Iberian ham in Spain in more detail.

DENOMINATION OF PROTECTED ORIGIN "DEHESA DE EXTREMADURA"

denominacion de orige dehesa de extremadura

Denomination of Origin Protected Dehesa de Extremadura on hams, palettes and loins.

Denomination of Origin Dehesa de Extremadura is one of the Denominations of Origin on the Iberian ham with greater impact in the market to the one that includes a greater production extension thanks to the extensive surfaces of meadows of Extremadura.

This denomination was authorized by Decree 34/90 of May 15, which approves the Regulation of its Regulatory Council and by the MAPA Order of July 2, 1990, where it was ratified along with its Rules of Origin Denomination and its Regulatory Council, for the purposes of its promotion and defense by the Central State Administration, in the National and International spheres.

The Regulatory Council is the body that has entrusted the protection and application of the same and the promotion and control of the quality of hams and Iberian palettes covered by this Denomination of Origin, which should be under this name the producers and manufacturers of Iberian pigs and hams To obtain this distinction of quality.

Hams, palettes and loin "Dehesa de Extremadura" only come from pigs belonging to the pure Iberian porcine breed, with crosses of up to 75% of this breed being permitted with 25% of the Duroc-Jersey breed.

The Dehesa de Extremadura Denomination of Origin delineates as a cattle-raising area the entire Extremadura region, and as an area for the processing and maturation of hams and pallets to the Extremadura regions of the sierras of southwest Badajoz, Ibor-Villuercas, Cáceres-Gredos Sur , Sierra de Montánchez and Sierra de San Pedro.

A first classification that we can establish is based on the feeding of the pigs:

  • Acorn pig or finished in montanera: These pigs raised in freedom to finish their fattening cycle spend a period of time in montanera feeding on natural grasses, aromatic herbs, acorns and any other natural resource of the pasture, without the possibility of accompanying their Feeding with any dietary supplement. To enter mounts the pigs must have a minimum weight between 92 and 115 kg and replace during the same at least 52 kg of weight. This montane period in the pasture must be at least 60 days and the slaughter of the pigs must not be carried out until a minimum age of 14 months.
  • Field bait pig: These pigs raised in freedom are fed during their fattening phase by feed consisting mainly of cereals and legumes. As their name suggests they are raised and fattened in extensive, or at least must have a minimum stay of 90 days in the field until the time of sacrifice in which they complement their diet with natural resources. These pigs have established as minimum slaughter age 12 months.

Morphology of Iberian hams with DOP Dehesa de Extremadura

Spanish Hams and palettes with Denomination of Origin Protected Dehesa de Extremadura have the following morphological characteristics:

  • Elongated and stylized shape.
  • Profiling by cutting V.

  • Color from pink to purple red on the cut.
  • Fat infiltrated into muscle mass.
  • Delicate taste, little salty or sweet.

Next we will define the main classification by which every buyer should be governed when differentiating the fundamental types of spanish hams and palettes within the Denomination of Origin Protected Dehesa of Extremadura, which takes into account the previous classification of the pigs and The diet of feeding.
