Beef Jerky can be eaten by anyone, at any time, and is a perfect replacement for unhealthy, empty-calorie snacks like sweets, pork scratchings, crisps, popcorn, etc. Anyone, in any walk of life, can benefit from the high-protein, low-fat properties of our beef jerky.

As far as I am concerned, it's not great. Beef protein has a low bio-availability. Loaded with chemicals and additives. You are better off with a high quality whey protein if you can afford it. Otherwise, get some cheap chicken breasts from a supermarket, grill them, take them out the fridge as you need them.
But tastes sooo good!
Anything in moderation, I train everyday and snack on Beef Jerky at least once a week, cost per gram of protein is high, for your money cottage cheese is a winner - a but girly but stir in some dried chilli's or mustard, both of which speed your metabolism and you have a high protein snack!
