Viande des Grisons is a speciality from the Alps. It could be described as an air dried beef or a beef prosciutto. It is the traditional meat for the raclette and fondue. Much leaner than normal prosciutto, Viande des Grisons is also very good as a snack or in a sandwich, or as an entree with sliced melon or fresh fruits.
Low in fat and carbohydrates, Viande des Grisons meat is easy to digest. It is a good source of protein and vitamin B complex, easily used in weight reducing diets. The extent of water loss during the salting and drying processes, whereby the product loses approximately half of its initial weight, is sufficient to confer excellent keeping qualities and a high nutritional value.
You can tell a genuine Viande des Grisons by its typical square shape.
