frequently asked questions

Your Biltong & Jerky Questions answered:

Is Biltong Healthy?

Absolutely! Biltong, a staple in the diet of many health-conscious Australians, is a nutritious snack packed with protein. At Black Protein, we take pride in our biltong being made from high-quality, fresh Australian beef, seasoned with a blend of natural spices. Unlike many processed snacks, our biltong is low in carbohydrates and contains no added sugars, making it an ideal choice for anyone looking for a wholesome, satisfying treat. Its high protein content supports muscle repair and growth, making it a perfect post-workout snack.

Do You Have Any Stockists?

At Black Protein, we pride ourselves on the artisanal quality of our biltong, which is crafted in small batches to ensure the highest standards of flavour and freshness. Due to our commitment to this artisanal process, we currently do not supply our biltong through stockists. We believe that direct sales allow us to maintain a closer relationship with our customers and ensure that they receive our products at their absolute best. Our focus is on delivering a premium, handcrafted product directly to your door, Australia-wide, ensuring that every bite reflects the care, tradition, and quality that Black Protein stands for.

What Is Biltong Eaten With?

Biltong is incredibly versatile and can be enjoyed in numerous ways. Traditionally, it's savoured on its own as a flavourful, soft and chewy snack. However, it's also fantastic when paired with a variety of foods. Try it chopped up in salads, added to cheese boards for a savoury kick, or as a protein-packed topping on your favourite pizza. At Black Protein, we love incorporating biltong into our recipes to add a unique, Australian flavour that elevates any dish.

How Much Protein Is In Biltong?

Biltong is an excellent source of protein, with about 50-60 grams of protein per 100 grams of biltong, making it one of the most protein-rich snacks available. This makes Black Protein's biltong a fantastic choice for athletes, fitness enthusiasts, or anyone looking to increase their protein intake in a delicious, convenient way.

How Does Biltong Compare With Jerky?

While both biltong and jerky are dried meats, key differences lie in their preparation and taste. Biltong is a traditional air-dried meat that cures for several days and often involves a vinegar marinade, giving it a distinctive, tender texture and a slightly tangy flavour. Jerky, on the other hand, is typically dried in a dehydrator or oven and has a smokier taste, and is also generally chewy and loaded with sugar.

Is Biltong Allergy Free?

At Black Protein, we understand the importance of catering to customers with food allergies. Our biltong is made with a simple list of ingredients, focusing on natural spices and high-quality Australian meat. We clearly label all our products to include ingredient information and potential allergens. Unless otherwise stated all of our products are gluten-free, dairy-free, and nut-free.

Is Biltong Keto Friendly?

Yes, biltong is an excellent snack for those following a keto diet. Its high protein and low carbohydrate content make it ideal for keto enthusiasts looking to maintain a state of ketosis. Black Protein's biltong is crafted without added sugars or unnecessary fillers, aligning perfectly with the nutritional requirements of a ketogenic lifestyle. Enjoy it as a guilt-free, delicious snack any time of the day.

What Does Biltong Taste Like?

Biltong boasts a complex, savoury taste that's both rich and subtly spiced. Depending on the seasoning it can have hints of coriander, black pepper, and vinegar, providing a unique flavour profile that sets it apart from other dried meats. It is definitely a meat product and it's definitely beef, but it's also really versatile and works with a heap of different flavours. Some of our products don't even taste like meat even though it's the only ingredient!

Can Children Eat Biltong?

Biltong is a great snack for individuals of all ages, from young children to the elderly. Its high protein content and soft chewy texture make it particularly beneficial for growing kids and active adults alike. However, for very young children or those with specific dietary needs, we recommend checking with a healthcare professional to ensure biltong is suitable for them. Black Protein's biltong is made with natural ingredients, but as with any food product, personal dietary restrictions and preferences should be considered.

How much Biltong can I eat?

While biltong is a nutritious snack, moderation is key to a balanced diet. A serving size of 30 to 50 grams is generally recommended per day, providing a good protein boost without overindulging. Black Protein's packages come in various sizes, making it easy to manage portion control and enjoy biltong as part of a healthy, balanced diet. Given the natural sodium present in beef please consult a doctor or nutritionist to see if biltong meets your dietary requirements.
