Nutrition

In today's health conscious world many people are concerned about what they eat, where it has originated from and how it has been processed. At BigHorn Biltong we believe that by starting with only the best ingredients - fully traceable rare-breed British beef and non-irradiated, GMO-free spices - we aim to satisfy this hunger for information, before the decision to buy is made (excuse the pun ;)).

We decided right from the start not to use potassium sorbate as a way to extend shelf life even though it can be found in a number of herbs and spices (but why add to this eh!). Additionally, not to use any form of vinegar to ensure that our ethics and conscience were absolutely clear in the eternally moving debate of "is vinegar gluten-free?"! More information can be found here.

Not all biltong is the same - however all of our biltong is absolutely 100% gluten-free and is therefore suitable for people who have coeliac disease or gluten sensitivity.
