Low Carb Beef Jerky (5 Benefits)

Low Carb Beef Jerky (5 Benefits)

When you need a snack on your road trip or just to get through the day, consider reaching for a stick of beef jerky. Not only is it convenient to eat, but it also provides a powerful pack of protein.

Yet some people are wary of jery due to the number of carbs in it.

Thankfully, low-carb beef jerky is available for those who want to watch their carbs and still enjoy a delicious snack. Here are a few benefits of low-carb beef jerky that you might want to consider.

1. Often Keto-Friendly

When undergoing the keto diet, finding a snack that fits it can be difficult. Traditional beef jerky doesn’t fit into the diet because it’s packed with preservatives and other unpleasant additives.

That isn’t always the case with low-carb beef jerky. There are several brands available that are actually keto-friendly. You can easily stick with your keto diet and still receive all of the dietary benefits that a snack like low-carb beef jerky provides.

2. Long-Lasting Snack

Low Carb Beef Jerky (5 Benefits)

Another great benefit of low-carb beef jerky is that, just like regular beef jerky, it can last a long time. Interestingly enough, beef jerky has been known to exist since the time of Ancient Egypt. At that time, Egyptians would dry and preserve the meat for long journeys through the desert, where food might be scarce.

While you may not have to worry about starving in the desert, you can still buy a ton of low-carb beef jerky and still have it ready to eat years later. Whether you like to buy in bulk or simply have a tendency to buy snacks and leave them in the cupboard, you don’t have to worry about wasting your money on food that goes bad.

Your low-carb beef jerky will still be ready to eat whenever you want it.

3. Low Sugar and Carbs

Another benefit of low-carb beef jerky is that it’s also typically low in sugar as well. Low-carb beef jerky is the way to go for those who don’t want sugary snacks or don’t want to give their children sugary snacks. You can often find many brands that offer low-sugar and low-carb beef jerky.

However, it’s typical for low-carb beef jerky to be low-sugar just in its inception. Instead of receiving all of that sugar and those carbs, you simply get the boost from the protein. You’ll feel full and have protein flowing through your body for muscle development and energy.

4. Gluten-Free

When looking for a brand of low-carb beef jerky, you can often find ones that make their jerky gluten-free. This is a great benefit because gluten alone can sometimes add unnecessary carbs to the jerky. For those with a gluten allergy, you can safely eat beef jerky without worrying about the consequences.

Just because you’re eating something that has been dried doesn’t mean you should settle for unhealthy meat. Low-carb beef jerky can be one of the healthiest snacks you could ever eat.

5. Delicious

No one wants to eat a snack that doesn’t taste good. Low-carb beef jerky doesn’t sacrifice taste for its carbs. A lot of the beef jerky you can find that’s low carn has a steak-like flavor. You can also find smoky-flavored low-carb beef, beefy with mouth-water seasonings flavored low-carb beef jerky, spicy low-carb beef jerky, and many others.

Consider low-carb beef jerky when it’s snack time.
