frequently asked questions about South African biltong

What’s the difference between grain fed and grass fed beef?

Overall, grass fed beef contains less total fat, more omega-3 fatty acids, more linoleic acid and more vitamin E, than grain fed beef, giving it higher nutritional value. In addition, grass fed beef contributes less to climate change and less to food insecurity, as more of our grain crop goes towards feeding grain fed animals than it does to humans. Grass fed animals however, consume forage and take up less of our crop supplies.

Biltong doesn’t expire, so it’s a great snack to buy in bulk and keep around the house for cooking or snacking.
