Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS BILTONG?
Biltong is a centuries old process of preserving meat that originated in South Africa. This unique, air-dried process ensures that our beef always retains full flavor and tenderness. Our biltong also boasts an exceptionally clean nutrition fact panel, so we invite you to snack guilt free!
IS BILTONG JERKY?
Biltong is better than jerky, it’s what jerky wants to be! Biltong is NEVER injected with sugar-laden marinades or nasty preservatives, and it’s NEVER dehydrated over high heat. Instead it’s air dried, resulting in a tender, flavorful beef snack with a texture similar to prosciutto.
HOW IS BILTONG MADE?
It’s simple! Top round beef is seasoned with vinegar and dry rubbed with simple spices before it is hung to air dry at room temperature for up to two weeks. Once dried, we slice it ultra-thin for easy to eat tender pieces every time. Season, dry, slice, that’s it!
WHY IS BILTONG “BETTER THAN JERKY”?
Each bag of biltong has 50% more protein than jerky, 0g sugar, and nothing artificial. There are no nitrates, no artificial colors, no preservatives, no MSG, and it’s totally gluten free.
WHY IS THERE SO MUCH MORE PROTEIN IN BILTONG THAN JERKY?
Since biltong is made without being pumped full of artificially flavored syrups, there is actually more meat per ounce of biltong than per ounce of jerky. In fact, biltong has almost 50% less water than jerky. Bottomline, you get more meat and less filler!
I’M KETO, CAN I EAT BILTONG?
For sure! Each 2.25oz bag of biltong has zero sugar, zero carbs and 36 grams of protein! You’ll have to find your fat elsewhere, though, because our protein is lean!
