It was simply outstanding and we have eaten so much already that nobody feels like any dinner.I just wanted to relay our compliments to you on a superb tasting product.\"I.R.California

\"Hi, I bought this for the office to give it a try. Our office bought vegan jerky (yuck). So, I mentioned I had heard about this stuff on a podcast (spittin' chiclets - not a big deal). Figured I would give the stuff a shot. I had about 6 people in the office try it and we all agreed it was delicious. It tastes good, and is not nearly as \"leathery\" as other beef jerky. You get a fair amount in each bag too.\"

New to biltong. This \"Original\" flavor had a thin texture, but there was very little flavor. I have to score it low. I probably should have ordered different flavors than original and might have been better for my taste

However, not much is similar between the two past those factors. Various aspects such as preparation, flavor, texture, and variety make these two meats unique in their own ways. For your convenience, here are the six differences between biltong and jerky.
Your preference for jerky or biltong will depend on your favorite flavor profiles. Do you like smoky meats that retain their flavor even when dried Are you a fan of vinegar and hints of zest in your meat Do you prefer sweet or savory flavors
Jerky and biltong are relatively similar when it comes to the nutritional makeup of each item. For instance, both contain unusually high levels of proteins, omega-3s, iron, zinc, B-vitamins, and other beneficial minerals. In fact, jerky is known as a superfood, and it can relieve stress and other mental health ailments. The key nutritional differences between jerky and biltong are their fat and sodium contents.
We like to think we know a thing or two about beef jerky (I mean it's in our name for crying out loud). But creating premium and fresh Australian beef jerky means more than just whacking any old cut of meat into a dehydrator and calling it a day. We understand that good things take time. Great things need that little something special. Creating that perfect piece of chewy jerky from a lean cut of beef is where The Jerky Co. really thrives.
Our family recipes stretch back more than 20 years, allowing us to pack loads of amazing flavour into our beef which is marinated for over 24 hours. We pride ourselves on creating Aussie beef jerky with premium cuts of beef and with a range of different flavours that'll be sure to tickle your fancy. From Sweet BBQ to Extra Hot, we're always looking for premium flavours to add to our Jerky repertoire.
It's no secret that to make a tasty piece of beef jerky, you need a top-quality lean cut of beef. That's why all of our meat used in our air dried meat products at The Jerky Co. is MSA grade beef. Using premium cuts of Australian beef allows us to create the tastiest, juiciest and freshest beef jerky that Australia has ever seen.
There's never been a better time to support local, so this is why we choose to use high-quality Australian beef in all of our different flavours and products. On top of this, we're constantly searching for ways to improve upon the quality of our jerky, so that you're consistently getting a mind-blowing sensation with every bite.
With sprinklings of delicious soy sauce, garlic powder, black pepper, onion powder and brown sugar as just a few of the tantalising additions to our beef jerky, it's safe to say your mouth is in for a wild ride when you pop a piece in.
Although you might associate jerky with a forgotten shelf at an old service station, The Jerky Co is breaking down the barriers on what you thought jerky could be. We want to switch up the story and show you that beef jerky can be damn tasty (and nutritious too).
When we got into the air dried meat game, we aimed to create tasty, fresh and protein-rich snacks of all shapes and sizes. So if you're more of a fan of beef biltong, then we've got you covered there too. If you're not into slicing the meat yourself, we have the option of both unsliced and sliced meat in all of our different flavours!
Now if you've now got a craving for some lean meat, we don't blame you. If you think reading about jerky makes you hungry, you should try working in a warehouse that smells of all sorts of delicious things on a daily basis!

You can buy your jerky online and have it shipped to your doorstep, or head down to one of our own locations or our stockists in Australia to snag some fresh jerky today!
Most beef jerky is also surprisingly high in sugar (upwards of 25%!) but our Biltong products have less sugar than a carrot. And because they're slow dried they're much more tender than jerky and retain over 90% of heat sensitive vitamins such as B12.
Unlike traditional beef jerky, our Biltong and Droewors is minimally processed. They contain all essential amino acids and are much easier for your body to digest, which results in superior protein utilisation.
Today, virtually all of the biltong you'll buy in the store is made from beef. Like beef jerky, you'll find free-range, grass-fed, and organic varieties. What you won't typically find is a wide range of flavors. That's because biltong uses spices for antimicrobial effect less than for flavor, whereas beef jerky spices are for flavor.
Traditionally, biltong was made from native South African game animals and you may still find varieties made from springbok, antelope, or kudu. Ostrich is another popular meat for biltong that has a bright red color.
The exact origin of biltong is lost to time, but when Dutch and French settlers arrived in South Africa in the 1600's, biltong was a common food snack. Biltong typically used brown vinegar and local spices to cure the meat which was air dried during the cold, breezy winter months. European settlers carried biltong north and east with them as they colonized Africa. Today, biltong can be found in most parts of the world.
Biltong is made from fattier cuts than jerky. When you make jerky, you are trying to remove as much fat as possible to prevent the meat from spoiling. The process of making biltong is different from jerky and allows the fat to be preserved along with the meat. The result is a lighter, fluffier product that is more crumbly and easier to chew than traditional jerky.
When beef jerky is being made, the meat is first sliced into thin strips. It's usually flavored with salt and sugar along with other flavors to add savoriness, spiciness, or smokiness. The thinly sliced strips are then dried in an oven in a process that can take from four to 12 hours.
Biltong is made from one-inch thick sliced cuts of beef. Salt is also used, but is combined with vinegar, an ingredient you won't find on that package of jerky. Traditional biltong curing process uses grape vinegar, but modern biltong makers will also use cider vinegar. Other traditional spices used are coriander and black pepper. Saltpeter is often rubbed into the surface to add nitrates for preservation.
The thick slices of biltong are traditionally hung and air dried in cold weather. The drying process takes about two weeks. Coriander and black pepper used in the drying process have been shown to kill or inhibit the growth of certain, common molds and bacteria. Vinegar is an acid that prevents the bacteria that causes botulism from forming. The air dry process is what gives the meat it's unique texture that is unlike other dried meats.
The main difference between biltong and jerky comes down to the texture and ingredients. Many commercial jerky products use lots of chemical preservatives and artificial flavors to make the unique flavors you'll find. Biltong will have fewer ingredients and a more narrow range of flavors.
The texture of jerky tends to be tough, dry, and chewy whereas biltong is more tender, crumbly, and soft. The taste of jerky is smoky and steak like, while biltong has a slightly acidic taste from the vinegar and spices. Biltong has a meaty taste and a softer, more delicate texture than beef jerky. If that texture is what you're looking for, but you're not sold on the idea of biltong (or don't know where to find it) our beef jerky bites might fit the bill. 59ce067264
