Fun fact: Prosciutto di Parma has been creating authentic goodness for more than 2,000 years with a method of curing pork that dates all the way back to ancient Roman times!

Real Prosciutto di Parma is gluten-free with no preservatives, additives or hormones. Always 100% natural, it can only be made in the countryside surrounding the city of Parma in North-Central Italy. The air in Parma is dry and sweet, which is what allows the ham to cure as well (and as deliciously) as it does. The secret to knowing that you're buying an authentic Italian product? Look for “Produced in Italy” or "Made in Italy" on the packaging.

You might not be able to travel to Italy, but you can look for the Parma Crown for genuine Prosciutto di Parma to bring a little bit of yummy to your table this summer!
