Health benefits of biltong

High Protein

Protein plays a vital role in maintaining not only muscles but bones too. Additionally, protein promotes healthy brain and heart function and stabilises your blood sugar.

Low Calories

Having a calorie controlled diet is an integral part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Recent research findings even point to a longer lifespan because of a low-calorie diet.

No MSG

MSG still remains controversial and although side effects like headaches and nausea can't be confirmed, we thought why risk it? Which is why we keep our products as natural as possible.

High in vitamins

Biltong is packed with B-Vitamins, which is one of the chief groups responsible for turning what you eat into energy for your body to use. Vitamin B is also crucial to the formation of red blood cells.

High in Minerals

Iron, Zinc, and Magnesium are all present in Biltong and is vital to a healthy immune system, as well as nerve and muscle function. It also helps to keep blood pressure stable.

More about St Marcus

Here at St. Marcus we realise the origin of our Biltong is just as important as the end result. Which is why we only use locally sourced, grass fed beef in the production of our succulent Biltong.

Grazing the lush pastures of our trusted local farm, the Aberdeen Angus Cattle's welfare is of the utmost importance. We believe the prime conditions are evident in the quality of our Biltong, and therefore, we'll endeavour to always source our beef responsibly.

Furthermore, our Game meat is sourced from a sponsored farm, ensuring that we look after the environment while providing top quality products.
