Is the fat in Iberian products healthy? Should we limit your intake?

Question: Is it true that the fat in Iberian products is healthy and can be eaten without restricting the amounts? Marta (San Francisco).

Answer: The fat of Iberian products, which come from animals fed on acorns and raised in freedom, have a higher content of unsaturated fatty acids (mainly monounsaturated about 50%, which is a heart-healthy fat). Although the quality of the fat is good does not mean that its consumption should not be limited, since they also contain saturated fat and salt.
