Biltong vs Beef Jerky - Same Same but Different?

Is Biltong healthier than Beef Jerky?

They are the same; just a different way of calling them, right?

Yeh Nah. They are not the same; and we are here to bring you knowledge so next time you also know what you are getting. Ignorance isn’t always a blessing like some people say. 

Let us be clear here: You can go for one or the other based on the taste and there’s nothing wrong with that but if you are considering cutting on Sugar and Additives then, one is definitely better than the other and most people don’t even know why. 

Biltong is a traditional South African food, where large beef steaks are marinated in vinegar, spiced and then hung to air dry in a controlled environment at ambient temperatures.

Oh, so it's like beef jerky right?

Hell no!! Most beef jerky is very processed, where thin strips of meat are covered in artificial sauces and then dried at high temperatures over a few hours. To be frank, we've never been beef jerky fans as most jerky is loaded with preservatives, sugars, and other bad stuff. Barbell Biltong is healthier and tastier than beef jerky and contains no preservatives, dairy, gluten, soy or added sugar.

Pay attention to Carbs/Sugar and ingredients content 🧐
