Correct me if I'm wrong.... you've been told by a doctor that you either have high blood pressure or kidney disease.
to answer your question.... there is not readily available low sodium beef jerky. Salt is the main preservative in dried/cured meats. The only way is to make your own.
Soak it in water overnight?

Your assumption is wrong, I eat beef jerky to increase my protein as I gym a lot, the varieties I have bought rank very high for sodium when I log my diet.

I do have eggs and milk, however need more protein so use beef jerky to boost my intake.
Go find your local South African shop and bus some fresh biltong..

no you dont need more protein. average gym goer at most requires 1.4g/kg. Dont fall into a fad of supplement marketing tactics. An athlete (someone you see eg. at the Olympics) has around 1.6-2g
so if you weight 90kg thats ~130g of protein per day. average joe in the uk consumes 80-90g just from normal daily foods (a chicken breast is around 50-60g)

Make your own then you can use as much or as little salt as you please, sounds a really obvious answer to me.

I spend 2-3 hrs per day, 6 days per week in the gym, spin, weights and cardio so I think my protein requirement is a little higher than average. Thanks for your advice particularly on chicken breast. It's interesting to hear about studies on runners finding low fat choc milk is a decent post gym drink...

In fact, chocolate milk is an ideal post-exercise drink, nutritionist Azmina Govindji says.

She says chocolate milk’s protein content and carbohydrate from natural and added sugars will refuel muscle glycogen stores.

Two University of Connecticut studies showed that runners who had 450ml of low-fat chocolate milk after a 45 minute run had better muscle protein repair and glycogen levels than those who had a calorie-matched carbohydrate-only drink

you dont need protein, you need carbs especially after cardio

To increase muscle mass in combination with physical activity, it is recommended that a person that lifts weights regularly or is training for a running or cycling event eat a range of 1.2-1.7 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight per day, or 0.5 to 0.8 grams per pound of body weight. Consequently, the same 75 kilogram individual should increase their protein intake to 75 grams (300 calories) to 128 grams (512 calories) in order to gain muscle mass. This level of intake can generally be met through diet alone and without additional protein and amino acid supplementation.

Really appreciate your links and advice, very helpful indeed.
+1 for biltong here. Doesn't have as much sugar as jerky too.
(Plus it's just soooooo goooood!)
