The Protein from Beef Jerky is ridiculously high. The fact that is a great snack (i can eat it in between classes @ school and get as much protein as chicken breast) makes it great for me to have. Is this a good food to consider using as my "school snack" or, because of high sodium levels, should i eat it moderation? ($ not issue (beef jerky is quite pricy).
Beef Jerky is quality protein if you need it in a bind. Since it really is only dehydrated it retains a lot of quality nutrients lost by other forms of processing. However I do watch my intake just from a water retention stand point.
beef jerkey is awesome.
Nutraplanet was talking about doing bulk jerky.
They really should. People will buy it.
i wouldn't worry about the sodium content much, after reading an article on sodium on t nation, that suggested that we don't get enough sodium in our diets, i added quite a bit and found that it really did help. he recommends for a 225 lb athlete 8-12 grams of sodium a day, so if thats the case, beef jerky is right up your alley, heres the article.
dint read but thats alot of sodium...ill stand by my low sodium ways.
But if Nutra got it, id be down for sure. Especially if they had a low sodium version......
Has anyone tried the Ostrim sticks yet? They're nothing new or anything, but they're a good mix of beef, and ostrich with high protein content.

What about canned chicken? Is that quality protein also? It's not the tastiest, but has 30 grams of protein per can. Does processing cause it to lose any of its efficacy?
yeah, i've tried the ostrim sticks, but they are EXPENSIVE. i'd simply go with the jerky and drink a bit of water with it. MY favorite snack on the go is WALNUTS.
i am a big advocate of fat. always have been testosterone makin' stuff that it is! i always have had more fat, even on a traditional diet plan, my ratio is 40/30/30.
so go with some nuts and some jerky. good ****!
that sodium article has changed my mind about salt
well i would buy beef jerkey all the time i just dont wanna be paying $4!!! for 50g!!!! lol
Nutraplanet said the problem was the suppliers, they don't want to package it in bulk since they are making so much $$$ on the current packages.

I have a bunch of deer in my back yard so if anyone wants some bulk deer jerky I will do he deed (however never having hunted in my life, and my affinity for not killing things may be a problem )
I feel somewhat bad having my mom pick me up Beef jerky since it is so damn expensive (but my favorite brand is mia now so I haven't had it in some time.) Bulk jerky would be professional.
buffalo jerky is where its at. i get it at trader joes as a treat every now and again, but its so damned expensive. like 6 bucks for 2.5 servings or something.
