Biltong is a form of dried, cured meat that originated in Southern African countries (South Africa, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Namibia, Botswana and Zambia). Various types of meat are used to produce it, ranging from beef to game meats such as ostrich or kudu.
The cut may also vary, either fillets of meat cut into strips following the grain of the muscle, or flat pieces sliced across the grain. It is related to beef jerky in that they are both spiced, dried meats; however, the typical ingredients, taste and production processes differ.
The word biltong is from the Dutch bil ("buttock") and tong ("strip" or "tongue").
All our Biltong varieties are handmade, some even say handcrafted, to perfection. We use only the finest cuts, and of course its 100% British Beef. We use just the right amount of vinegar, then spices and flavours to make the perfect partnership to give our Biltong that something extra.
And remember - Biltong is high in Protein, low in Fat and low in Carbs, making it a perfect healthy snack.
