Lochners biltong Newton Park, is one of the Lochners biltong deli’s that is situated in Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape. They offer hand-crafted and naturally air-dried biltong products such as beef and venison biltong, cabanossi, chicken sticks and bacon biltong, to name a few.
Why is biltong the perfect snack?
Biltong is probably the most popular snack amongst South Africans. Surprisingly, there are also many health benefits that most people are not aware of.
1. It’s low in fat
Biltong usually averages around 3% of fat in a single serving, making it low in kilojoules than many other snacks you would land up reaching for, such as potato chips.
2. Rich in protein
Biltong is naturally rich in protein and low in carbohydrates. Only 25g of lean beef biltong can meet at least half of one’s daily protein requirement.
3. Vitamin B12
Vitamin B12 is essential for nerve cells and helps create red blood cells. Your body does not make Vitamin B12 on its own, so adding a serving of biltong to your daily diet will increase this much-needed vitamin.
4. High in iron
Many dieticians recommend increasing foods such as biltong if their patients have an iron deficiency, as red meats are naturally high in iron. Biltong needs no preparation and can be eaten on the go, making it easier to increase your iron intake.
Some more reasons why biltong is great:
- It’s naturally gluten-free.
- It stores/keeps very well.
- Moms purchase very dry pieces and give to their teething babies. (Lochners Biltong Newton Park has biltong specifically made for babies – just ask for their baby biltong.)
- You can add biltong to other foods, such as salads and bread.
