Adventurous cooks can

try their hand at making

a towering gourmet

panettone, while lastminute planners can

whip up some easy Parma Ham canapés.

Parma Ham is produced under

the watchful eye of the Consorzio del

Prosciutto di Parma, who regulate all

producers and strictly prohibit the use

of nitrates, nitrites, or other additives,

making Parma Ham a healthier food than

some other options.

Parma Ham is a Protected

Designation of Origin (PDO) product and

is 100% natural. The drying process that

Parma Ham goes through creates a ham

that is very low in fat content, with many

mineral salts, vitamins, antioxidants and

easily digestible proteins. This means that

Parma Ham is truly a food for everyone.

Prosciutto di Parma is produced in

the hills surrounding the Italian town of

Parma. The unique taste of Parma Ham

is dependent on the traditional production

process passed down from Roman times,

carefully controlled by the Consorzio del

Prosciutto di Parma. Only hams that

have passed stringent curing regulations

approved by the EU can be awarded the

stamp of the Ducal crown - a five-pointed

coronet logo with PARMA in the centre

which is branded onto the ham's skin.

The Ducal Crown is now a certification

trademark.

In 2018, the production of Prosciutto

di Parma saw a considerable growth of

4.8%, with a global production of 8.5m

legs of ham. The United Kingdom market

for Prosciutto di Parma ran at 17,540,000

One serving is 12g which will contain

30 calories, 17% of which are fat (0.7g

saturated fat), zero carbs and 3g of

protein. There are no colourants or

preservatives in Parma Ham.

It is leaner than other types of ham

due to the low content of fat but has

a high protein content. Proteins are

essential because they are components

of muscles, tendons and cartilage as well

as enzymes and antibodies. The long

maturing of the ham means 20% of the

total protein is composed of free amino

acids, making it easily digestible. These

properties make it a suitable for everyone

including children, the elderly, sports

people, and those who have problems

digesting proteins. Parma Ham is also a

cold cuts with a low cholesterol content.

MAKING CARBS COUNT

pre-sliced packs sold - the largest amount

of pre-sliced packs of ham sold anywhere

in the world that year.

According to the website www.

greatbritishchefs.com, "Parma ham, or

prosciutto di Parma, refers to cured ham

produced specifically in the Parma region

of Italy. There are around 160 producers

of Parma ham in this region, each

following the specific (and painstaking)

curing procedure, which includes the legal

requirement that the ham must be cured

for a minimum of 12 months. The result

is a gorgeously distinctive and full flavour

that is at once both sweet and salty."
