Names in compliance with the legislation for Iberian acorn-fed ham
With the arrival of the new Ibérico law, new names were given to the Pure Iberian acorn-fed ham and Iberian acorn-fed ham. Although it may generate some confusion among consumers, the change serves the purpose of more clearly distinguishing the Iberian products that comply with the new regulations from those produced in accordance with the previous legislation.
Although the correct denomination of the product, according to the new Ibérico Law (Royal Decree 4/2014), is Iberian Acorn-Fed Ham or 100% Iberian Acorn-Fed Ham. Currently, many consumers still refer to these hams by the previous denominations of Royal Decree 1469/2007.
In the following table, we can see the name change resulting from the new regulations:
|Royal Decree 1469/2007
||Royal Decree 4/2014
|Jamón ibérico puro de bellota
||Jamón de bellota 100% ibérico
