Our Mojama Extra comes under the “Mojama de Isla Cristina” PGI, and comes from the finest part of the tuna, the loin, which, after undergoing a salting and drying process and careful selection, results in a product characterised by its dark brown external appearance and tuna loin veins that show when cut.
Of the three recognised mojama quality grades, “Extra” is the best, coming from a more compact area of muscle, which gives you a softer texture, with less marked marbling than premium quality or sirloin mojama.
Our Mojama de Isla Cristina belongs to the Regulatory Council of the Protected Geographical Identification “Mojama de Isla Cristina”. This label endorses and controls production to guarantee the careful processing of specially selected tuna.
Unlike most manufacturers, we make our mojama with only tuna and salt, avoiding the use of any colouring, flavouring or chemical preservatives.
The presence of white spots on the mojama is the result of salt precipitates caused by refrigeration, which disappear after a period of time at room temperature.
Instructions for use: remove from the fridge 15 minutes before consumption.
It goes great with nuts, such as almonds.
