What is Biltong?
Biltong is a spiced and cured meat that originated in South Africa and eaten as a healthy snack. Many different types of meat can be used to produce Biltong, ranging from beef through to game meats and fillets of ostrich from commercial farms. South African Biltong is typically made from fresh fillets of meat cut into strips following the grain of the muscle. Biltong is similar to Beef jerky however the production processes are different as Jerky is firstly cooked then dried, whereas Biltong is spiced, cured and dried. The word biltong is from the Dutch bil (“rump”) and tong (“strip” or “tongue”). More Nutritional facts
