Biltong is a traditional South African food, where large beef steaks are marinated in vinegar, spiced and then hung to air dry in a controlled environment at ambient temperatures.
Oh, so it’s like jerky right?
Hell no!! Most jerky is very processed, where thin strips of meat are covered in artificial sauces and then dried at high temperatures over a few hours. To be frank, we’ve never been jerky fans as most jerky is loaded with preservatives, sugars, and other bad stuff. Barbell Biltong is healthier and tastier than jerky and contains no preservatives, dairy, gluten, soy or added sugar.
When we found the benchmark our faces were beaming with grins – we had struck gold. We nicknamed our original spice, The Benchmark as it well and truly set the standard for the best biltong we had ever had.
The Burn is our mild chilli spice and a true athlete’s food. Abiding by the KISS principle, we simply added a lot of chilli to our Benchmark spice.
