The majority of Serrano hams are made from a landrace breed of white pigs or from commercial breeds such as Duroc, made from black Iberian pigs. These hams were known as a delicacy even in the days of the Roman Empire. Though not expensive in Spain and the European Union, duties imposed on imported meats and exchange rates make these hams more costly outside the EU. Where available, the meat can usually be sliced, in chunks, or as a complete, bone-in ham.

Serrano ham has TSG Status.
