What is the difference between Biltong & Jerky?

Traditional American jerky is typically a combination of left over meats, cut into strips, and smoked along with additives & nitrite preservatives.

Biltong on the other hand is cured in vinegar and spices as an entire slab in low, dry heat for at least a few weeks. It is then cut into smaller pieces once it has been fully cured and has a mouthfeel between jerky and prosciutto. Our Biltong is either Bottom Round or Top Serloin cut. No artificial preservatives necessary! 

Is your meat gluten free?

It's meat. Do you know what gluten is?

What is the difference between Biltong & Droëwors?

Biltong is cured meat in spices, and Droewors is a slightly different process that produces a thinner, chewier meat due to the increased speed of the drying cycle before being placed in a lamb casing. There are also no artificial preservatives in Droëwors as with Biltong.

What the hell is Peri Peri?

An earthy spice, a bit like Paprika but hotter and warmer flavors. If you have had Nandos chicken, it is the same spice blend as they use on their chicken.

How long does it last?

Biltong and Droewors are shelf stable for one year, if opened keep in a refrigerated environment for up to six months.
