Absolute Biltong jerky

Product review: Absolute Biltong jerky

It was a sad day when I found out that the jerky I loved and bought regularly was halal. Luckily, a quick internet search came up with an alternative that, while not being “strictly paleo” (whatever that means) is grass-fed, gluten-free and explicitly not halal.

I got a bunch of different flavours to try: venison (plain), beef (plain and pepper), emu, and water buffalo. Seasonings include GF soy sauce, red wine, a tiny bit of brown sugar, salt, spices, and tabasco.

Coming from consuming a brand with a lot less ingredients, it took me a while to get used to the bolder flavour. It’s not bad, just different. Out of the meats I tried, I found the emu too gamey for my taste, but would definitely buy the rest again. The smaller packs have the advantage that the jerky comes already chopped up.

  1. Hi there. I have read your comments and thank you for your honest review. We try and make the best and healthiest Jerky and Biltong that we can. Just recently we also have taken the brown sugar out of all our lines and have replaced it with locally sourced Honey.

    Kind Regards.
