Biltong is one of the best protein foods around. How does it compare to an actual protein bar?

Protein is vital for muscle repair & growth, and is made up of 20 amino acids, of which 9 are essential amino acids. Without these essential amino acids it is impossible to build, repair or even maintain muscle tissue. These essential amino acids cannot be produced by the body, so they have to come from our diet.

We compared the protein and fat content of biltong and protein bars in the UK. Our biltong has the highest protein content of any other biltong products in the UK, as well as the lowest fat content of any other biltong at just 3.7%. This makes us very proud.

We also looked at protein bars, and found BEEFit Biltong was both higher in protein and lower in fat.

Why bar when you can beef??

Our biltong is over 61% protein and 3.7% fat compared to a leading manufacturers “specialist protein bar” which is typically 10% fat and only 35% protein.

The results are clear: BEEFit has the most protein out there, making it the ideal after-workout snack.

Tastes pretty good too, as all natural food always does.

Biltong (pron. bill-tong) is a 400-year old traditional South African beef snack, cured in a unique and highly nutritious way. It is different from American Beef Jerky, in both taste and preparation. The word BILTONG is formed from the Dutch words "BIL" (meaning meat buttock or  hind quarter)  and 'TONG" meaning "strip". So it's just that  - a strip of meat.

For centuries mankind has preserved meat. Ancient seafarers pickled meat in large wooden barrels and devoured this during the long months they were at sea.

But the Huguenot settlers who immigrated from Europe to the fertile valleys of the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa,  took the delicacy to a whole new level! They picked the meat with a dramatic blend of spices including vinegar, salt, sugar, coriander and other spices.
