WHAT IS BILTONG?
Biltong is crafted from Beef which has been sliced, Marinated and slowly dry air cured in a protective environment; we have simply enhanced the techniques of the South African Pioneers to bring you a rich Beefy snack that is soft and flavoursome, delicious and nutritious. It’s made with just a handful of all natural ingredients, with minimal processing and no added artificial colours or flavourings. The result is an amazingly tasty ready to eat savoury snack that’s is high in protein, low in carbs and sugar.
WHERE DOES BILTONG COME FROM?
Biltong is a centuries old process of curing and air-drying meat that originated in South Africa. In a time before refrigerators and freezers it was used to preserve meat and provide sustenance for future meals. Air-drying retains the meat’s core nutrients and flavour making it an excellent source of protein and all nine essential amino acids. We like to think of it as the original protein bar!
HOW DO YOU MAKE BILTONG?
“Biltong Without Compromise” dictates everything we do here at Raging Bull. Unlike some brands out there we craft our biltong in the traditional way using the highest quality natural ingredients. Firstly we take silverside grass fed beef and marinate it in recipes passed down through generations of our family (with a few modern twists here and there). We then air-dry the beef in a strictly controlled temperature environment (to replicate the dry humid temperatures of Southern Africa). While other brands try and speed-up this process we prefer to take our time because we know if you rush the process the taste and tenderness is compromised. The result is a healthy and delicious ready to eat snack that is bursting with protein and low in fat and carbs. Raging Bull Biltong is also MSG and nitrates free and our Chilli and Original flavours are gluten free.
WHAT MEAT DO YOU USE TO MAKE BILTONG?
To make great tasting biltong you need great meat. We therefore only use prime cuts of silverside grass fed beef. Our company ethos also dictates that our beef is responsibly sourced from certified UK and Irish farms. High quality animal welfare produces the highest quality meat and without that we wouldn’t be able to make our award winning biltong. Remember, this is “Biltong Without Compromise”.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BILTONG AND JERKY?
Jerky originated in North and South America and is also a process for preserving meat. The main difference though between Biltong and Jerky is that biltong is air-dried whereas Jerky is cooked or dehydrated. Biltong retains more of its natural fibres and nutrients and is often lower in sugar making it the healthier snack. On average it takes 250g of meat to make 100g of Biltong and 200g of meat to make 110g of Beef Jerky
WHERE DO YOU MAKE YOUR BILTONG?
We craft our Biltong here in the UK in our Salsa accredited facility. With so many home industries selling Biltong online be sure to buy from an accredited company. Our premises and procedures go through vigorous inspections to assure our products comply with all regulations. Remeber we have been crafting award winning Biltong and Droewors here in the UK for 25 years.
WHAT IS DROEWORS?
Sometimes referred to as Drywors or Beef Beer Sticks. In its simplest terms it’s a delicious dried thin sausage (think peperoni) crafted in much the same way as Biltong and has similar South African origins. We use only the highest quality Scottish beef trim which is minced and spiced. The drying process is very much the same as biltong. Droewors, like biltong, is high in protein and low carbs. If you like Boerewors sausages you will love these.
IS BILTONG GOOD FOR A KETO DIET?
Our biltong as well as being absolutely delicious is low carbs and high protein so fits as part of a keto diet. Judge for yourself : 100g of Raging Bull Biltong contains nearly 60g of protein, only 0.6g of sugar and less than 3g of carbohydrates! IS BILTONG A GOOD WORK OUT SNACK? Experts say the best snack pre and post workout is a combination of protein and carbohydrates, so instead of reaching for that dull protein drink, grab a bag of delicious Raging Bull Biltong instead.
It’s easy to think of biltong as just a snack but it’s a deliciously seasoned, ready- to-eat meat, which makes it perfect for topping canapés or salads, flavouring stews , sprinkling on top of rice, omelettes, bruschetta, avocado toast (the list is endless!). It also goes great with wine, bread and cheese making for the ultimate charcuterie platter.
HOW LONG DOES BILTONG LAST?
The shelf-life of our products is 9 months.
HOW LONG DOES BILTONG LAST WHEN THE PACKET IS OPENED?
If you have the will power to not eat all our biltong in one sitting then we would suggest; 35g bags – once opened consume within 48 hours.
