Mangalitsa does not require special care and has good fattening ability. In fact, the Mangalitsa is one of the fattiest pigs in the world with fat accounting for 65% to 70% of its body weight. Its meat is considered among the tastiest pork in the world. The meat of the Mangalica pig is reddish, highly marbled with creamy white fat, and is high in omega-3 fatty acids and natural antioxidants. This is due to the natural diet of forage, wheat, corn and barley. Mangalica lard is lighter, and melts at a lower temperature, than lard from other pigs, because it contains more unsaturated fat.
