Production Process

The biggest difference between biltong and jerky is the production process. Jerky is dried using an oven or dehydrator to quickly prepare the meat. But biltong is air-dried over the course of about 10 days, giving it more time to absorb flavors and keep its tenderness.

When you choose Meatsa’s biltong, you are choosing leaner cuts of meat. We don’t want you to have to chew on excess fat, and we want to be able to provide you with the healthiest meat snack options possible. We’re picky about our meats because we want to give you the highest quality snacks that we can.

Higher In Protein And Less Fat

Thanks to the leaner cuts of meat that we use, we are able to provide higher protein content and lower fat content. This means when you’re looking for a boost throughout your work day, on a hike, or at any other time, you won’t be packing on unnecessary fats, just giving your body more protein, which can lead to higher energy!

Softer Texture

Due to our unique 10-day air drying process, our biltong meat is much softer than traditional jerky. We all know how frustrating it can be to chew and suck on jerky for several minutes when it feels like leather or rubber. Our soft biltong is much easier to chew and provides a richer flavor!
