GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. – Perky Jerky has introduced a new breed of meat snack: wagyu beef jerky.

The beef jerky, which is paleo friendly, features marinated coconut aminos and sugars. The item comes in three flavors: Sea Salt & Pepper, Truffle & Thyme and Chimichurri.

"At Perky Jerky we've always strived to make the Best Tasting Jerky on Earth. That's where we've set the bar," said Brian Levin, CEO at Perky Jerky. "Our new line of Wagyu Jerky has surpassed our expectations and then some. The incredibly rich flavor and texture surprised even us and we can't wait for our customers to try it."

According to Perky Jerky, wagyu beef is known for its tenderness and marbling. Perky Jerky’s product is sourced from humanely raised, vegetarian-fed cattle free from antibiotics and hormones.

The new products are also soy-free, gluten-free and have no artificial preservatives, added nitrites or nitrates. They contain up to 12 grams of protein, 2 grams or less of sugar and 220 mg or less of sodium per serving.

The line will debut at Whole Foods Markets nationwide.
