Particularly rich in vitamins

Bayonne ham is notable for its vitamin B content: More particularly for its exceptionally high vitamin B1 content, of which it is one of the best food sources.

Vitamin B1 is an antioxidant and a polysaturated fatty acid. It plays a role in protecting cell walls and fighting cellular ageing. A serving of 100 g of Bayonne Ham supplies between 70-80% of the daily required intake for an adult.
