Majorcan sobrasada is traditionally spread on bread. This serving method has a great many varieties: once we have spread sobrasada on bread, we can top it with honey, sugar or apricot jam.

However, the gastronomical possibilities of sobrasada do not end here: sobrasada can be used in meat, fish and vegetable dishes, and even in some desserts!

The Regulatory Board is a body which looks after the quality of the product.

In early 1996 the European Union registered Majorcan sobrasada as a product of Protected Geographical Indication, extending its originally Spain-wide protected status to the whole of the EU countries.
