Not being one to applaud the amount of red tape that is generated by Brussels the following link may be of use - you can browse all of the Protected Geographical Indications (PGIs) and download many of the references. Contained within is a lot of useful info if you can get past all of the bumf and understand some of the foreign languages. Anyway if you are trying to mimic a certain regional flavour/product it's possible to find a lot of info in the concentrations of the different ingredients, the manufacturing methods, the cuts of meat used, and how any important ingredients are manufactured.

Happy reading! ... er.status=
