National Jerky Day
Today is National Jerky Day!! How luck are we! National Jerky Day was created to celebrate the rich history, immense popularity and nutritional benefits of dried meat snacks.
A pound of meat or poultry will weigh only about four ounces once it is made into jerky, and it can be stored for months without refrigeration because most of the moisture has been removed. Salt is added to the meat before it is dried, to prevent bacteria from developing.
Since 1996 jerky has been selected by astronauts as space food several times for space flights.
Traditional jerky is readily available in nearly every convenience store, gas station, supermarket, and variety shop in the United States.
NOT ALL JERKIES ARE CREATED EQUAL!
There a million brands but one brand is absolutely the best Simply Snackin’.
Finally, we have a Registered Dietitian-approved jerky busting with nutrition for busy people who don’t have time to sit down to eat! Simply Snackin’ hits a home run with flavor (my favorite is the Dried Beef with Cranberries and Blueberries), a clean ingredient label (no additives or fillers), and a fabulous nutrition profile. You have got to try these high-protein, low-fat jerkys bursting with yum. Don’t forget – new studies are suggesting we need 30 grams of protein per meal!
