Beef Jerky: Introduction
Beef Jerky is a lean meat that has very less fat content and is high in protein. The fat is trimmed off from the meat in the beef jerky, the meat is then cut into strips and then it is dried.

Consumption of protein-food being the new trend
The focus has been shifted from that of carbohydrate-rich food to food that is rich in protein. Beef jerky is being used as a snack food that is rich in proteins. And thus there were more sales of beef jerky than that of other snacks that have carbohydrates. Also, the beef jerky is rich in nutrition that is an additional benefit. The addition of preservatives is also not required as the whole moisture content is supposed to be kept to 2% only according to the government guidelines for beef jerky. This reduces the beef jerky getting spoilt by microbial contamination even without preservatives. Also, the salt added to it is known to avoid bacterial contamination and acts as a preservative. This is thus termed as a healthy snack and is thus in high demand.
