The Tineo Cosco, naturally healthy.
One of our star products
One of the most traditional sausages from Asturias, very unique to Tineo. Made in an artisanal way, it is protected by the IGP Chosco de Tineo. A high-energy sausage that can be consumed at any time of the day, especially in the winter season.
Characteristic of our land, unmistakable, exquisite. And, above all, nutritious and healthy
Chosco de Tineo is a high-quality meat preparation, like 100% acorn-fed Iberian ham or León cured beef. It is made from pork cuts (shoulder and tongue) rich in protein and low in fat. In addition, its consumption provides us with a good dose of vitamins and minerals.
Pork meat, due to its nutritional characteristics, is one of the typical products of the Mediterranean Diet. And the Mediterranean Diet is one of the dietary patterns with the greatest scientific evidence in terms of health benefits.
The Mediterranean Diet, in fact, encompasses both a way of eating and a healthy lifestyle associated with that habit: among other aspects, traditions, knowledge, culinary skills, preservation and transformation techniques for foods... As a whole, it was declared an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2010.
Chosco de Tineo fits perfectly into it, both for its nutritional qualities and its traditional preparation, regulated by the IGP guarantee label.
