The origins of the name ‘mortadella‘
The origins of the name ‘mortadella’ are still not entirely clear, though most research dates it back to Ancient Rome.
Some trace the name back to the term “mortarium” (mortar), which is the tool used to flatten pork, whilst others believe that it comes from the term “mortarum”, a sausage flavoured with myrtle berries, or from “murtatum”, meat finely minced with a mortar.
Did you know that…?
Mortadella is also rich in minerals such as iron and zinc. As a result, it is ideal for anyone who does a lot of physical exercise and thus needs a good supply of energy. Mortadella is low in cholesterol and has a limited salt content.
