Jedidiah’s Beef Jerky is made from 100% solid meat. Made without added preservatives like sodium nitrate, erythorbate or monosodium glutamate (MSG) and is 96 percent fat free. Our jerky is high in protein but low in fat, low in calories and low in carbohydrates.
Beef jerky is good for you because it provides about 1.8 mg iron in a 28 g serving, or 10 percent of the daily value. Iron deficiency leads to iron-deficiency anemia. Individuals at higher risk for iron deficiency include women of child-bearing age. The iron in beef is in its heme form, which is the form of iron that is easiest for your body to absorb.
Beef jerky is good for you because it provides 1 microgram of vitamin B-12 in 100 g, which is more than 15 percent of the 6 micrograms that you need in one day. Vitamin B-12 is essential for healthy red blood cells. Vitamin B-12 deficiency is uncommon and unlikely if you regularly consume fortified cereals or animal products such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs or dairy products.
