4 OUDTSHOORN COURANT | GRAAFF-REINET ADVERTISER Vrydag 18 September, 2020 Biltong has long been recognised by South Africans as the perfect companion to take along on arduous hunting trips and taxing mountainee­ring expedition­s and of course also to help you get through those nail-biting rugby matches. Biltong has the edge on almost any other snack – it’s healthy, convenient, lightweigh­t, easy to store, and has a lengthy shelf-life making it perfect for long trips or when refrigerat­ion is not available. Biltong is an excellent low fat snack and is versatile enough to be used as a base for soups and stews, as a filling for sandwiches or even sprinkled on salads. Game biltong, or beef biltong? The choice is yours. Nutritiona­lly both are an excellent source of protein, while game biltong usually has a lower fat content than beef biltong. Typical values for protein, fat and calories are indicated alongside. Probably the best-known biltong outside South Africa, a 25g portion of beef biltong (depending of course on the cut) contains 60 calories, 1.3 grams of fat and 11.5 grams of protein Springbok biltong, perhaps less well known to non-South Africans, contains 58.5 calories, with 0.2g of fat and 13.3g of protein per 25g serving. Proudly sponsored by: E Classed as game biltong but usually sourced from farmed birds, this is perhaps the healthiest option with 57.3 calories, just 0.6g fat and 12.2g of protein per 25g. 59 Church Street | Graaff-Reinet Tel 049 891 1065 Biltong is also an exceptiona­lly rich source of iron, a mineral many people lack. Why does your body need iron? Iron is essential in order for the body to produce haemoglobi­n, the substance in red blood cells that carries oxygen from your lungs to other parts of the body and transports carbon dioxide from your organs and tissues back to your lungs. If you don’t have enough iron, your body can’t make enough healthy oxygen-carrying red blood cells.
