Jason Eisner and Jordan Cohen first discovered Biltong at a rugby match in Cape Town, South Africa. Used to the beer, hot dogs, and soda offered at American stadiums, we were skeptical at first… until we tried our first bite. Then, we were hooked.
The taste, the texture, everything was miles better than any snack we had ever tried in the US. But when we returned home, we couldn’t find it anywhere (it's illegal to ship to the US). The only commercially available products were nowhere near the moist, tender, delicious beefy goodness we got our hands on in South Africa.
So, we made our own.
BETTER THAN JERKY
You may be asking yourself: isn't this just another name for beef jerky? No!
Beef jerky is made with heat, sugar, and preservatives, and often has more sugar per-serving than protein. Biltong is air-dried and made only with natural ingredients, resulting in a healthier nutritional profile and a more tender, mouthwatering texture.
THE HEALTHIEST SNACK ON THE PLANET
Biltong has more protein per serving than a protein bar, with none of the added sugar or artificial ingredients. Beef, spices, vinegar, and air: that's all it takes to create this whole-food nutritional powerhouse. A diet high in protein has been scientifically proven to boost fat burning, build lean muscle, increase satiety, build strong bones, and even lower blood pressure.(source)
