We love jerky, but most jerky uses cheap, factory farmed meat and loads of nasty carcinogenic preservatives. Add a stack of sugar (yep, some jerky is 25% sugar!), MSG, and emulsifiers into the mix for good measure too.
Our biltong is uses the very best meat you can get - 100% organic, grass-fed, grass-finished, regeneratively farmed, Aussie beef. It's also free from nasty preservatives, it's relatively low in salt, and has next to no carbs or sugar. Because biltong is slow dried rather than cooked, it's more tender than your average jerky.
One question we get asked a lot is “but isn't this processed meat?”. It’s important to recognise that every time we cook food we “process” it. A whole food product is defined as “a food that has been processed or refined as little as possible and is free from additives or other artificial substances”. Our products are whole foods, not “processed meats”, because they’re made with high quality meat, with a few herbs and natural ingredients. They’re dried using a traditional process (which is healthier than cooking it at high temperature) without the ingredients found in “processed meats”. It’s not just us saying this, our consulting dieticians and nutritionists agree.
