New in the Market: Veroni Italian Salami

We love to try new foods. Some are great. Some don’t measure up and some become staples in our kitchen. See what you think.

Veroni was founded in Italy in 1925 in the region of Emilia-Romagna as a small family-owned store. The brand is famous for Mortadella which is protected by ICP (Protected Geographical Indication) made in the Emilia-Romagna region. Mortadella started the brand which today produces a wide range of traditional Italian salami.

Veroni is expanding its presence in the US market. We tasted a number of their products and all were excellent.

Italian Mortadella with Pistachio Nuts – The slices were 10 inches across and sprinkled with a few slivered pistachios per slice. Two slices (2 ounces) has 140 calories, 11 grams of fat, 9 grams of protein, 1 gram of carb and 560 milligrams of sodium.

The different varieties of salami were nuanced in flavor and it would be up to personal preference to pick a favorite.

We tasted four varieties and all were excellent.

Salame Calabrese a hot spicy salami. Six slices have 87 calories, 8 grams of protein and 435 milligrams of sodium.

Salame Di Parma a mild salami seasoned with salt and pepper. A 1-ounce serving (about 4 slices) has 90 calories, 9 grams of protein and 480 milligrams of sodium. It is also available as a 6-ounce whole salami.

Salame Milano a mild salami seasoned with garlic and pepper. Six slices have 83 calories, 8.5 grams of protein and 475 milligrams of sodium.

Salame Toscano a spicy salami seasoned with fennel seeds. Six slices have 80 calories, 8 grams of protein and 470 milligrams of sodium. It is also available as a 6-ounce whole salami.

Salamini Bites are small mild salami in a resealable 3-ounce package. One serving, 1-ounce (about 5 minis) is 125 calories, with 9 grams of protein and 450 milligrams of sodium.

Prosciutto Italiano is dry cured ham. One serving, 1-ounce (about 2½ slices), has 70 calories, 8 grams of protein, 560 milligrams of sodium and 144 milligrams of potassium.

All Veroni salami is sourced from Italy but may be sliced and packaged in the US.

The brand recommends using their products to put together an apericena meal. In Italian tradition this would be an informal tapas-style meal with salami, prosciutto, cheeses, vegetables and baked items accompanied by wine.
