The Secret of the Iberian Black Pig

The Iberian Black Pig is a breed originating from the Iberian Peninsula. Characterized as a unique breed due to its very unique eating habits, as it is raised primarily on acorns and grass in the pastures of Portugal and Spain. This unique diet gives the meat a distinct flavor and texture, as well as a high level of unsaturated fat which is considered healthier.

The Iberian Black Pig is highly valued and appreciated in gastronomy due to its exceptional meat and unique qualities.
