FACT #1 LEAN BEEF IS GOOD FOR HEALTH

Jim’s Jerky is premium quality lean and tender topside, hand-trimmed of all visible fat, processed into premium grade Jerky and Biltong.

Lean meat is heart-healthy and according to the Heart Foundation “For women lean red meat provides iron in a form that is more easily absorbed by the body than iron found in vegetables, beans and wholegrains. For men lean red meat is a good source of zinc, beneficial for reproductive health.”

The recommended intake of protein is between 0.7 to 1.7 grams per kilogram of body weight depending on activity levels and whether or not you are pregnant.*

FACT #5 CHEWING IS GREAT FOR YOU

Taking your time to chew Jim's Jerky and Biltong, will not only allow you to savour each piece and enjoy the savoury flavours on offer, it is vitally important to your health!

Chewing helps to absorb more nutrients and energy, causes you to eat slowly therefore giving your brain time to register the signal that your stomach is full, aids digestion and is good for your teeth, keeping them strong and producing saliva.

"Chewing is a major activity that involves muscular forces," says skeletal biologist Daniel Lieberman. "It has incredible effects on how the skull grows."

FACT #6 WANT CLARIFICATION OF OUR INGREDIENTS – ASK

Not all ingredients are as easy to understand as salt and sugar, and we know the real fear of eating something we don’t understand! That’s why we choose to mix our own spice on site and use only trusted ingredients and suppliers.

All spice details are available on request and commonly confusing ingredients, such as Beef Booster, are explained briefly in our FAQ, to view our FAQ page, click here. 

FACT #7 NATURALLY PRESERVED

Bacteria are everywhere and cooking is a method introduced to kill bacteria in raw meats. However if bacteria comes into contact with cooked meat it can regrow and can cause food poisoning.

The water activity is the key to determining if microorganisms will grow, since bacteria require a certain amount of available water to support growth. Therefore dehydration although it can not kill bacteria, bacteria can not grow with water activities of .85 or less.

Jim’s Jerky is dried and then water tested to beneath .7 and Biltong products are dried to beneath .85. All of Jim’s products are quality controlled and the Jerky and Biltong are water activity tested every run. Our products are also bacteria tested through Safe Food Queensland. 

 FACT #8 SHELF STABLE AND LONG LASTING

Jim’s Jerky and Biltong are naturally dehydrated in large commercial food driers, causing dehydration of the meat and losing at least 40% of the beef’s initial weight.

Dehydration is one of the oldest methods of food preservation. Originally this form of food preservation allowed ancient man to store food, which meant he no longer consume the kill immediately, because food by its nature begins to spoil the moment it is harvested due to bacterial activity. Jim's Jerky and Biltong products cannot expire, they can however oxidise through contact with the air through either being opened for a long period or packaging failures.

Jim’s Jerky places a Best Before on all its products to ensure our peace of mind that consumers taste the products at its freshest and tastiest!
