Unlike traditional jerky, beef biltong is cut into larger strips and specifically air dried, anywhere from 3-7 days to retain the meat's core nutrients. It's also specifically doused (not marinated) in vinegar, and rubbed with salt to eliminate the chewy texture often associated with other dried meats.

Not only does it taste delicious, but biltong is ideal for healthy snacking, paleo diets and fitness fanatics alike. Unlike other cured meats, it's extremely low in fat - there's just 3% fat in a 25 gram serving.
