The Nutritional Value of Biltong
We all know biltong tastes good, but did you know that it’s also good for you! Biltong has many nutritional benefits compared to other traditional snack foods, which is one of the reasons it continues to grow in popularity.
Firstly, biltong is high in natural protein, around 50%, which is important for repairing and building muscles in the body. This makes it great snack for after a workout, a run or a game of rugby.
Biltong is also a great source of other essential nutrients such as iron (which many people lack), magnesium, potassium and vitamin B-12 (essential for healthy blood and nerve cells).
And the nutritional benefits of biltong continue. Biltong is low in carbs, which is great for weight loss and if you choose lean biltong, it’s also low in fat.
Combine all these benefits with biltong’s portability and natural shelf life and you have the perfect snack for eating almost anywhere.
So next time you go to reach for the crisps or a biscuit, grab some biltong instead. Your body will thank you.
