Biltong is a popular traditional South African product made by seasoning and drying meat. It dates all the way back to the European settlers in Southern Africa in the early 17th century. With limited resources and no way to protect their meat from the hot climate, the settlers refined the curing process as a necessary means of preservation. Standing the test of time, this delicious and effective curing process is still utilized around the world to this day.
“We’re seriously proud of Ernie Els Biltong,” says Ernie. “It’s an authentic South African recipe. We’ve taken our time to get this absolutely right. This is how I like it; a pure product and a great snack whether you’re playing or watching sport. In South Africa, we grow up with biltong. We eat it all the time. I wanted to bring this taste of South Africa to the US so everyone can appreciate what this is all about. I think people are going to love it.”
Biltong is a great natural source of protein and is naturally high in vitamin B12 and iron, helping with muscle maintenance and assisting in the creation of red blood cells and the restoration of amino acid supply. With so many amazing nutritional benefits and an unbeatable flavour, biltong is quickly becoming one of the world’s most popular snacks. Here at Ernie Els Biltong, we pride ourselves in bringing together the traditional South African inspired recipe and quality USA products to make an outstanding biltong.
