“Move over kale, acai berries and chia seeds… 2016’s big new biltong superfood is here!

Rather than reaching for the popcorn next movie night, grab a handful of delicious high-protein, low-calorie biltong. According to health and fitness expert, Max Bridger, biltong is the perfect healthy snack, with a 25g serving containing just 64 calories, 50% protein and 3% fat – this means that just one serving of bodacious biltong will give you 20% of your daily protein requirements and can boost your metabolism by up to 30%! And, it won’t result in an all-too-familiar sugar crash! What’s more, for all you gym bunnies out there, biltong, as a post-workout snack, will boost your energy levels.

So, next time, you’re feeling peckish, grab a bulging bag o’ biltong to satisfy those cravings, guilt-free.

DID YOU KNOW? Prince Harry loves nibbling on biltong while fighting on the front line, while actress Liz Hurley swears by it as part of her diet.”
