Biltong is a great source of protein. It’s high in Vitamin B12 which is essential for cell replication and healthy blood cell count. Due to biltong being an air dried cured product, this means all the nutrition and vitamins are not lost like most proteins once they are cooked. It’s perfect for losing weight as it holds barely any saturated fats or sugar. It’s a great snack that you can take on the go with you as it lasts longer than other meat products. Because it’s such an easy on the go snack it’s often consumed by people who hike, go camping, picnics or just long travels. It’s an easy product to store and keep snacking on later.

Traditional biltong is spiced with natural spices such as roasted coriander seeds, crushed black pepper and crushed salt. Our biltong also contains worcester sauce, which gives it a bit more of flavor and vinegar is used as a natural preservative. Unsliced pieces of biltong have also been known to help babies in their teething stages. If you are into fitness and going to the gym, then this is your perfect post workout snack--about 25g is the perfect protein amount. Sampsons spices are produced in factories where wheat & soy products are used so please take note for food allergies. 

So all in all, biltong is healthy as its low in saturated fats and its high in vitamin B12. It is perfect for your on the go lifestyle and an extremely tasty snack which should come with addiction warnings.  Having said all this, just like anything, it should be appreciated and eaten in moderation. Beef biltong can have fat on it, but if you are not a fat lover and wanting something more lean, try biltong made from venison and game meat. Most, if not all venison is lean and a healthier alternative. Springbok specifically is extremely lean and makes a damn tasty biltong. Biltong in South Africa is the most popular meaty snack we all love so much, so to know that its healthy, you can enjoy it without any of the guilt!
