Iberian chorizo characteristics
It is a type of cold meat made from the meat of Iberian pigs that are at least 50% Iberian breed. We may distinguish Iberian chorizo without considering the production process by the feed that the pigs consumed and the purity of the breed.
Iberian chorizo (50% Iberian breed): They come from pigs whose breed is 50% Iberian.
Iberian chorizo (75% Iberian breed): They come from pigs whose breed is 75% Iberian.
Iberian chorizo (100% Iberian breed): They come from pigs whose breed is 100% Iberian and has not undergone any crossbreeding with breeds other than the Iberian.
We’ll distinguish between pigs which have eaten feed or field food.
Iberian chorizo de cebo:
They come from pigs raised in confinement and fed on natural feed and cereals.
Iberian acorn-fed chorizo:
They come from pigs raised in the wild and fed on pasture, acorns, and fruit.
Why are Iberian chorizos not certified?
Iberian chorizo is a type of cold meat created from a variety of ingredients, unlike Iberian hams and some noble meats like Iberian loin. As its origin cannot be confirmed, it is consequently difficult to certify its recipe.
Iberian cold meats are not certified for a number of reasons. Due to potential variations in the production process from one company to another and the difficulties in tracking the origin of the meats, both the designations of origin of Iberian ham and the Ministry of Agriculture believe that certification of this type of product is not necessary.
Fat can be added in greater or lesser amounts to chorizo-making mixtures, resulting in a product of lower or higher quality. Although it is a key component of chorizo, too much fat might impact its flavour and digestion.
The fact that it is a processed product, however, makes it already considerably less expensive than other Iberian pork delicacies like loin and ham. So, a certification could therefore result in a significant increase in price.
