11g of Protein

Beef jerky is an easy source of complete protein. A 30g serving of Big Chief Jalapeño  beef jerky contains 11g of protein. Protein is the building block of the body's cells, and is one of the most important substances you can eat. It is essential to the human diet not only because it provides energy, but also because it is critical to the growth and repair of cells. Protein also supports the immune system and helps regulate metabolism.

Did You Know?

Beef jerky is high in protein and doesn't raise your level of insulin, the hormone that signals your body to store fat. This makes beef jerky an ideal between-meals snack, especially when you're trying to lose weight.

A bag of beef jerky will power your mind through the afternoon slump more effectively than a sugary drink. Although glucose is your body’s primary energy source, new research shows that your brain prefers protein. Scientists were able to establish that orexin cells, which release stimulants into your grey cells to keep your brain alert, work most effectively with protein-based fuel.

Source of Iron

Vitamins and minerals play similar roles in the body, regulating normal functions such as digestion, tissue growth, and respiration. Beef is a source of the mineral iron, critical to health because it assists the blood’s hemoglobin in carrying oxygen to the body’s cells. Iron is especially important in women between age 14-50 and iron deficiency is the most common nutritional deficiency in North America.

Trans Fat Free

Unlike other cuts of red meat, beef jerky is low in fat. Beef fat is comprised of approximately 35% monounsaturated fat. The consumption of monounsaturated fats are linked to a reduction in LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) and an increase in HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol). Big Chief Original beef jerky contains 9 g of fat in total, with 0 g from trans fat in a 30 g serving.

Gluten Free

Gluten can be defined as any gluten protein or modified protein derived from the grains of the following cereals: wheat, barley, oats, rye, triticale, kamut or spelt. Big Chief Jalapeno flavored meat snacks do not contain wheat, or any of the above-mentioned grains and cereals.

 Only 1g of Carbohydrates

With only 1g of carbohydrates in a 30g package, Big Chief Jalapeño beef jerky has a high protein content while still being low in fat and low in carbohydrates.
