General information about beef jerky
The native Americans have trusted in the power of beef jerky for millennia. They needed readily-available energy on their long treks. That's why they created their very own stone age snack. They cut buffalo meat into thin strips and dried it in the sun. Once dry, it was then smoked over their campfires. For extra flavour, they added special herbs. That is how they created a handy snack that would give them the energy they needed for their long hunts.
The premium quality Beef Jerky by foodspring is made exclusively from the meat of grazing cattle from Scotland and the UK. The production process meets strict European quality standards. Many beef jerky products are made in the US. As we only use premium beef from Scotland, our Beef jerky has a very high protein content with very little fat.
In order to comply with highest quality requirements, all fat and tendons are meticulously removed from the low-fat muscle meat by hand. It is then cut into thin slices or strips, dried and coated with homemade marinade and salt before curing.
That is how our Beef Jerky becomes the perfect, low-calorie snack for on the go. The properties of our Beef Jerky make it a perfect snack as part of a high-protein diet or for athletes working on muscle building.

The effects of beef jerky
Beef jerky is rich in BCAAs, iron and creatine
As we use only premium quality beef, our Beef Jerky is an excellent source of essential amino acids like BCAAs, the performance booster creatine, and iron.
The essential amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine (BCAAs) play an important role in muscle performance. They support protein synthesis (permanent generation and degeneration processes in protein elements) and protect muscle mass, which is particularly important in reduction diets. The most important aspects of calorie deficit diets is maximum muscle maintenance and simultaneous body fat reduction. A sufficient supply of BCAAs facilitates this process and actively supports weight loss.
Protein-rich snacks have proven to be intelligent helpers as part of a weight-loss diet or a muscle-building regime. As far as nutritionists are concerned, protein and the benefits it provides play a major role in the success of a diet. Protein-rich snacks like beef jerky provide energy and make you feel full. Our Beef Jerky consists of over 50% protein. In terms of feeling full, protein is proven to be far superior to carbohydrates and fats because of its complex structure. Beef Jerky can therefore suppress desires for high-calorie snacks and sweets.
Beef jerky is also a valuable source of creatine. Creatine enhances physical performance, especially in short, intense workouts. This is particularly helpful for basic exercises like deadlifts, squats, bench presses or for short sprints and various jumps.
As beef jerky is made purely from beef, it is particularly rich in iron. An iron deficiency is one of the most common deficiencies when it comes to micro nutrients. An iron-deficient body will suffer long-term from low performance capabilities and frequent signs of fatigue. Beef jerky can help counteract this micronutrient deficiency.The effects of beef jerky in summary
- Protein-rich snack for an optimal feeling of fullness
- Rich in essential amino acids - BCAAs for muscle building & muscle maintenance
- Beef contains creatine as an energy source for power and endurance exercise
- Rich in iron, one of the most common micronutrient deficiencies in the general population

Buying beef jerky online – what you should look out for
The most important factor in beef jerky is the quality of the beef used in its manufacture. Premium quality will make a big difference in terms of taste. Premium quality beef jerky is made exclusively from the meat of grazing cattle. Many products use turkey or chicken as a "substitute" for the more expensive beef. The characteristic taste of beef jerky is lost in these products. Additionally, these products contain many additives like artificial colourants. The idea of "natural" beef jerky goes completely out the window.
