Clean, great tasting on-the-go protein that you don’t have to drink
Beef jerky is one of those moreish snacks that some carb conscious busy bodies like because it adds variety to their diet. The biggest issues clean eaters have with beef jerky are the added sugar, gluten and MSG that finds its way into mainstream brands.
Pro Beef has managed to launch a beef jerky product that contains none of the above mentioned nasties that actually tastes good. Furthermore, it’s not as tough to chew as some other brands so you don’t feel your jaw muscles growing with every bite.
The biggest feature for us though, has to be the fact that it doesn’t stink out a room when you open it. Beef jerky is typically one of those snacks that everyone knows about if you are eating it in an enclosed space, but we tried ours on public transport and didn’t receive a single dirty look – result!
The only downer is that we had to wrestle with the packet a little in order to get into it. It’s ok if you’re at your desk and have a pair of scissors nearby but may be a bit of a challenge when you’re glycogen depleted post workout and finding it difficult to even tie your shoes!
Here’s how it stacks up against a mainstream brand:
What we tried:
Peri Peri flavour
What we liked
It’s clean, convenient and tasty
100% British grass fed beef
What we would do differently
Make the packet a little more user friendly
Who can eat this?
Obviously not vegetarians and vegans
It is, however, perfectly fine for Carb Conscious, Calorie Counters and Gluten Aware busy bodies
Value for money
At £2.99 a pop, it’s more expensive than other brands, but given the quality – that’s to be expected. Keep an eye on their website for promo codes
