Biltong is a traditional South African recipe beef snack that is crafted with premium cuts of grass fed beef. Ayoba Biltong has zero sugar, is high in protein with delicious natural beef flavor, and a texture combination that falls somewhere between jerky and prosciutto. The process is simple, yet delicate. We start with the finest cuts of beef and spice it to perfection using an old family recipe, we then marinate the slab of beef and air dry it for over fourteen days. We then carefully slice the slab into thin, tender bite-size pieces. Just like our South African ancestors, we use no artificial ingredients and only clean, natural spices. It’s perfect for a quick bite, meal replacement, or a post-workout snack. Ayoba Biltong also has 30% more protein than jerky!
Droëwors is an artisanal dried beef stick that is made with 100% beef and contains no sugar. As with our Biltong, we start with premium cuts of beef that are finely ground and spiced with only coriander, cloves, salt and pepper. The mix is then carefully hand-stuffed into a natural casing and hung to dry for over five days. The result is a delicious, high protein treat that makes the perfect road trip or adventure snack that can be eaten anywhere!
You probably mean Droewors. Some brands out there thought it would be easier to call it Biltong Sticks because not everyone knows what Droewors is. We stay true to our South African heritage by calling it Droewors (which translates to "dry sausage").
The most important difference between Biltong and jerky lies in the drying process. Making Biltong is a two week-long process where the beef is air-dried without any heat, compared to jerky which uses a dehydrator or oven at a low temperature. Biltong also has a variety of all-natural ingredients which enhance the flavor and helps cure the meat. Another unique difference between Biltong and jerky is the taste. Biltong isn’t smoked like traditional jerky or covered in a marinade of bbq or teriyaki, but rather has a natural beef flavor. The last difference between Biltong and jerky is the thickness of meat used when curing the meat. Biltong is dried in large slabs rather than thin slices like jerky. Read Our Blog

Boerewors is a traditional South African recipe sausage that is made of beef and pork (also available in Beef Only). The word translates from Afrikaans into English as "Farmers' Sausage". Just like our ancestors, we use no artificial flavorings or preservatives and no fillers. Boerewors' secret ingredient is coriander, which sets it apart from any other sausage and gives it the authentic South African taste.
Grass Fed Beef means the cattle have only been fed grass and other foraged foods like alfalfa. Grain Fed Beef means the cattle might have been grass-fed at some point in it’s life, but it has also had a diet consisting of grains such as corn. Think of it this way, Grass Fed cattle live a life of essentially only eating salads made of grass, whereas Grain Fed cattle will also have sweeter food like corn and oats. Grass Fed cattle also tend to have more access to pastures to graze (this is certainly true of our Grass-Fed cows) which also contributes to the leaner beef. Read Our Blog

The main difference between the two types of beef comes from the diet of the cattle. Grass Fed Beef means the cattle have only been fed grass and other foraged foods like alfalfa. Grain Fed Beef means the cattle might have been grass-fed at some point in it’s life, but it has also had a diet consisting of grains such as corn. Think of it this way, Grass Fed cattle live a life of essentially only eating salads made of grass, whereas Grain Fed cattle will also have sweeter food like corn and oats. For this reason, Grass Fed cows tend to have leaner muscles and not as much fat marbled in the meat. Grass Fed cattle also tend to have more access to pastures to graze (this is certainly true of our Grass-Fed cows) which also contributes to the leaner beef. For this reason, Biltong made with Grass Fed beef tends to be a little leaner and thus a little drier than its Grain Fed counterpart. Grain Fed Beef tends to have more fat marbling and thus will stay more moist during the Biltong drying process. When it comes to the taste and flavor of Droewors, we believe that they both taste very similar and nearly indistinguishable. Read Our Blog
