What is Biltong
What is biltong?
Biltong is a process for preserving meat that originated centuries ago in South Africa. Stryve Biltong is 100% beef with no sugar, MSG, gluten, nitrates or preservatives. All natural. All flavorful. Always air dried to lock in flavor and nutrients. And - biltong has more protein in every bite than jerky.
How it's done
High quality steaks are washed in tangy vinegar then seasoned with one of our signature dry rubs. Whichever flavor you favor, you and your taste buds can rest easy knowing there's nothing artificial going on.
Here's our not-so-secret-secret. We don't blast our beef with heat. The tender slabs of steak are hung in a humidity-controlled room, where they're air-dried to keep our beef snacks power-packed with nutrition.
Finally, the biltong slabs are sliced against the grain into ultra-thin, ultra-delicious pieces. All that's left to do is enjoy.
The Stryve Difference
Stryve uses 100% premium grade beef sourced from local ranchers right here in the United States. Our beef is sourced, purchased, seasoned, dried and packaged in the U.S.A.
