Biltong is an awesome choice for a high protein snack, mostly because it doesn’t feel like a snack food, and actually feels like eating proper food. In this instance a highly nutritious with 57% protein. Not to mention being essentially a preserved meat, which makes it a complete protein too.

I┬ásampled the Original Flavour of MyProtein’s Beef Bilton. This particular biltong is a little drier than some, despite MyPro referring to it as a “wet” Biltong. Wet Biltong for me, is usually pinker and a little more moist. In saying that, I have had considerably drier Biltong, on a scale of Dry (1) to Wet (10), I would class this as about 3/10 Medium Dry.

The amount of fat would have been around 10% before seasoning, curing and drying process. It ends up around 5-6%, this is just enough to give you little pops of flavour and moistness. Sometimes ultra lean biltong lacks a juice factor, making it a tough eat,  so I think MP have hit a sweet point in the ratio.

According to MyProteins website, this beef protein is made using choice cuts of premium British silverside or topside beef, requiring 200g of raw beef to make each 100g of seasoned Biltong.

There are a half dozen-ish flavours including original which we sampled, these are peppered, chilli, smoked, tandoori and teriyaki.
