Italian Prosciutto with reduced sodium

Posted on Aug 23, 2011

New to the UK Market

Specialising in top quality Prosciutto, this Italian family business are pleased to announce their healthy prosciutto with reduced sodium (EU patented). Recently launched across Italy as a favoured healthier prosciutto by a large supermarket chain and many other smaller retail outlets, some with private label, this prosciutto is proving popular and tasty.

Their latest innovation is a prosciutto with a reduced quantity of sodium enriched with Potassium. Using the same high quality raw material as their Prosciutto range, they are now producing a prosciutto with around 30% less sodium than the average Italian Ham.

It is known that a low sodium diet is necessary to prevent cardiovascular diseases, protect health, control blood pressure and protect the kidneys. Whilst potassium is considered necessary to support muscle growth, it activates enzymes to produce energy our body needs to correctly utilise proteins. The taste is mild and delicate.

As prosciutto specialists, selecting the raw material with care, they use a restricted number of farms where they control genetic and food. Animal welfare is of utmost importance. Their prosciutto is considered to be the sweetest and most fragrant in the entire prosciutto production (Consortium’s data).

They are the biggest exporters of Parma prosciutto in the US and Japan and are now looking to export to the UK market. ISO, BRC and IFS certifications.

Millionaire’s Mushrooms at an affordable price

with the unique authentic taste of Italian Black Truffles

Please ring or email for trade enquiries

Luxury in a recession. Black truffle powder in an easy to dispense pack. A modern and practical way to flavour your food. Sprinkle and mix the truffle powder on hot food, eggs, pasta, rice, potatoes meat or toasted bread. One puff is enough! Italian Black Truffle Powder is freeze-dried, ground ‘Tuber Aestivum’ Black Truffles.

A truffle is the fruiting body of an underground mushroom; spore dispersal is accomplished through fungivores animals that eat fungi. Almost all truffles are ectomycorrhizal and are therefore usually found in close association with trees.

There are hundreds of species of truffles that are big, but the fruiting body of some (mostly in the genus ‘Tuber’) are highly prized as a food. The 18th-century French gastronome Brillat-Savarin called these truffles “the diamond of the kitchen”. Edible truffles are held in high esteem in French, Spanish, northern Italian and Greek cooking, as well as in international Cuisine.


The origin of the word truffle appears to be the Latin term tuber, meaning “swelling” or “lump”, which became tufer- and gave rise to the various European terms: French truffe, Spanish trufa, German Trüffel, Dutch truffel and Croatian tartuf. In Portugese, the words trufa and túbera are synonyms, the latter closer to the Latin term. The German word Kartoffel(“potato”) is derived from the Italian tartufo (truffle) because of superficial similarities.


The mycelia of truffles form symbiotic relationships with the roots of several tree species including beech, poplar, oak, birch, hornbeam, hazel, and pine. They prefer argillaceous or calcareous soils which are well drained and neutral or alkaline. Truffles fruit throughout the year, depending on the species and can be found buried between the leaf litter and the soil.
