Is Sibiu salami made of horse?

I was told by someone who loves Sibiu salami that it's made of horse. Is it? In any case, I read that it may be made an EU protected product.


  1. Paul, I too loved the Sibiu salami until I was told of the rather "relaxed" hygiene conditions. It may be an urban myth but I often heard from Romanian friends and acquaintances about rodents in the mix. Are things so much better now?

  2. no. it used to be during the later part of communism. nowadays it is made of pork.

  3. This is an urban myth that may have started out because in the old days the casings on the salami used to come from horses. That has all changed with the new type casings available now.
