I feel as though my entire life I have been lied to. I had never heard of biltong before. Then one day I’m browsing through Amazon looking for some new product to try to supplement my protein and there it was. Braaitime Biltong. I love beef jerky but you can only eat so much before your jaw falls off from the chewing. Also the brands that have low carbs (1 or less per serving) are limited. The reviews for the biltong were rave so I went out on a limb and purchased it. Holy crap. It changed my life. Well maybe not that dramatic but it is VERY good.
Biltong is beef that is dried differently than American beef jerky. Biltong was first made in South Africa around 400 years ago. It is cool air dried beef that is lightly seasoned and hung in a special box to dry. The coriander was added to keep flys away.
How does it taste? One word. Excellent. Biltong reminds me of roast beef. It’s soft and easy to chew. While I’ve read that some brands are oily due to the fat content of the meat this brand was not. Braaitime Biltong is tender, flavorful and an overall compliment to a keto or paleo lifestyle!
So let’s talk about the nitty gritty keto details out of the way. Nutritional information. One ounce of biltong contains 80 calories, 2.5 grams of fat, 1 net carb and 15 grams of protein. It’s made with beef, salt, vinegar, black pepper and coriander. It’s keto AND paleo friendly. It’s a nice little protein packed snack! Order some Braaitime Biltong today! Enjoy!
