WHAT IS BILTONG?

Biltong (pron. bill-tong) is a 400-year old traditional South African beef snack, cured in a unique and highly nutritious way. It is different from American Beef Jerky, in both taste and preparation. Biltong USA is the first ever meat processing plant in the world to produce Biltong that is approved, inspected, and passed by the USDA. We are also the very first Biltong processing plant in the world that was approved by any FSIS agency (Food Safety Inspected Services).

With no artificial colorings, flavorings, or preservatives, no sodium nitrates or MSG, our Biltong has 16g of protein per oz and is gluten-free (except for our Teriyaki flavor due to the soy sauce).
 

The word, "BILTONG,"

...is formed from the Dutch words "BIL" (meaning meat buttock or hind quarter) and 'TONG" meaning "strip". So it's just that  - a strip of meat. For centuries mankind has preserved meat. Ancient seafarers pickled meat in large wooden barrels and devoured this during the long months they were at sea. But the Huguenot settlers who immigrated from Europe to the fertile valleys of the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa, took the delicacy to a whole new level!

The basic spicing is a dramatic blend of vinegar, salt, sugar, coriander and other spices; these were in abundance in the Cape Colony at the time, as the French Huguenots produced wine and vinegar from their grape crops supporting seafarers from Europe who made the Cape of Good Hope  (Cape Town) their halfway stop on the spice route to the Far East.

Now in the 21st Century, the Joubert Family of Stallings, NC have mastered the recipe and now commercially produces the most superior Biltong and Biltong Sticks (Droewors) outside of South Africa.


WHAT IS DROËWORS?

Our Droëwors is made of the same qualify beef as our biltong, but the beef is ground and stuffed in a lamb casing prior to the curing process; thus their nickname, "Biltong Sticks."
