SAN FRANSISCO- Meat snack maker Made by True announced on Sept. 26 that it has added biltong to its offerings. Biltong originated in South Africa and is made from slabs of inside round beef that are cured in vinegar and spices, dried at room temperature for up to a week, and thinly sliced.
Made by True Biltong is available in three flavors: Cape Town Classic (salt, pepper and coriander), A Savory Adventure (garlic, herb and spices) and Little Bit of Spice (coriander, chili powder and paprika).
The company’s biltong packs 80 calories, 16 grams of protein and zero sugar per ounce. The Made by True Biltong meets the requirements of keto, gluten-free, soy-free, paleo and Whole30 diets.
“Our passion for food, culture and travel took us on a 10,000-mile journey through South Africa, where we came to learn about biltong’s significance and history from local ranchers, meatpackers, manufactures, retailers and consumers,” said Jess Thomas, co-founder of Made by True. “Biltong is an integral part of South African food culture and we found so much national pride and love for the product that was truly contagious.”
Made by True distributes to more than 2,500 locations, including Sprouts Farmers Market, Safeway-Albertsons, Cost Plus World Market and Peet’s Coffee. Biltong is currently available on the company’s website, Amazon and coming soon to nationwide retailers.
