We’ve been making our Biltong out of British and Irish silverside beef since day one. Which means it’s rich in flavour and packed with the natural protein your body deserves. We take lean strips of silverside beef, rub them in herbs and spices, then hang them to dry. The result? 16g of proper tasty protein per portion. No added sugar and no unnecessary nasties - just homegrown protein from British and Irish cows.

Each 50g serving has

  • More than 25g Protein
  • Less than 122 kcal
  • Less than 1g sugar

Comes in resealable bags for freshness.

What is the difference between biltong and beef jerky?

Beef jerky is a classic cooked and dehydrated meat snack, made with salt and a handful of different seasonings. All the moisture is sucked out of the meat, which means it can hang around safely on the shelves for a long time. Biltong, on the other hand, uses a mix of vinegar and deep, strong spices every step of the way, giving the meat that extra notch of flavour. It also packs a juicier punch, because it has a slightly higher amount of fat running through the meat. Beef jerky has less fat - hence why it can be drier (and tougher on the teeth).

How long does biltong last?

When storing your biltong in a cool dry place, this will prevent it from going moldy. Freezing your biltong can make it last for a year, which is awesome. You can extend this time by simply keeping it in the fridge or by vacuum sealing it. These storage conditions will have it last for weeks or months. Biltong only starts forming molds when exposed to oxygen, therefore you need to keep it sealed until the time you want to eat it.


What is the best biltong meat?

Biltong is made from meat, this is because it is easy to get from any butcher and provides the best meat needed for the recipes. The excellent beef for quality biltong is the finest cuts from fillet, sirloin, or streaks from the hip such as silverside. Biltong is strictly made from soft beef, other parts can be used but the results are not great as it will be chewier.


Health Benefits

Biltong is one of the best snacks you can enjoy and it has many health benefits too.

High Protein

An average serving contains about 50% of your daily protein, and its night protein and low card contents makes it a super good fit for a variety of diets. The biltong is also a rich source of iron, those with iron deficiencies will benefit from this snack while enjoying it at the same time.

Low Calories

Biltong is a popular weight-reducing choice because it is low in calories, fat and is as well gluten-free.


MSG is a glutamic acid put in foods to preserve it, it is a flavour enhancer but its use remains controversial. In some countries this additive is barbed because of its reactions on people - headaches, sweating, flushing, etc.

High In Vitamins

Biltong is high in vitamin B12, which is important for healthy cells and cell production. Vitamin B12 also prevents a type of anemia called megaloblasric, this anemia makes people feel tired and weak all the time.

High In Minerals

Biltong is also a source of vital minerals such as iron, zinc, and magnesium. These minerals are very important for the body to stay healthy. The body uses these minerals for many functions in the body such as keeping the bones, muscles, heart and brain working properly.

I purchased these as a birthday gift for my Biltong loving partner. unfortunately I have now had to buy him a pair of trainers to burn off the calories. :) After seeing the bags he said he would just have a little taste but within 5 days he had demolished both bags. He loved them. He said if he had to choose a favourite, the chilli just had the edge over the Original. He also said the Biltong is up there with the best he has ever had. It was flavoursome, juicy and delicious.We will definitely be purchasing more from you. So happy I came across your site. Thank you.

Great Biltong, so tasty


Delicious and convenient

My husband is a personal trainer ans I’m a teacher. We lead very busy lives with 3 children to juggle as well as full-time jobs. We try to practise a mainly animal-based diet and shop as sustainably as we can when it comes to meat. Ember Biltong ticks all the boxes for us: sustainably sourced, no sugar, delicious and reasonably priced! And with the subscription, it turns up at our door every 4 weeks so I don’t have to remember to order more! Perfect!

Good quality beef & delicious product

I’m impressed with the quality of beef used - good flavour, tender and tasted fresh. I do have a problem though... trying to make sure my 3 sons leave me some!
