About

Brooklyn Biltong

We're so happy to introduce an AIP approved version of our biltong today! We've had many requests from our customers for an option like this. We've heard how hard it is for you guys to find simple enough snacks that won't cause you to flare-up.

And when everyone else can eat whatever they want, you guys have to scrutinize over labels and when a popular snack like biltong is not available, all you can do is hope that someone will bring it to the market. We're about to change that :)

The Need

When you deal with an autoimmune disorder you can only eat certain food. Food that won't cause inflammation in the gut. Most of the time these foods have to be free from spices. Obtaining high protein snacks that fits this criteria is not easy. 

When it comes to meat snacks you can basically only eat the meat with salt. When we heard about this need from our customers at Brooklyn Biltong it became our passion to introduce a version of our biltong that fits this requirement.

The Solution

Naked Biltong! Biltong is South Africa's version of beef jerky and very simple by nature. The biggest difference being it is air dried, instead of by heat, and that way the finished product is more tender and flavorful. And because the meat flavor is not cooked away, we don't have to add all kinds of sugars, corn syrups or even spices to bring back taste. 

Biltong made with only salt and apple cider vinegar will remind you of a simple steak and it is completely AIP approved. With this simple "Naked" version of our biltong, you can enjoy as much as you'd like and not be concerned about breaking out. It's the perfect fit for the #carnivorediet on the go.

What makes us different?

We established what we call 'Eat and Feed.' Because our Biltong is a grass fed, sustainable, protein rich nutrient, we give away 10% of our profit in the form of actual Biltong to local Brooklyn organizations. We've most recently been donating to Chips, who works with City Harvest in distributing the Biltong into hungry hands.

The Lovely Rewards!

 Keeping it tight with black and white, these bio-washed fabric caps feel broken-in already. 
   We got fancy with our awesome new logo, and had it embroidered in white on the front, because you know, embroidery = kick-ass.
 

Repin’ our roots, these ‘Kickstarter only’ Brooklyn outline shirts are made with a super soft tri-blend. They are white heather fleck,  pre-shrunk, and pre-your new favorite tee!

Risks and challenges

Though we are confident in our estimated launch dates, our timeline for recipe approval is not guaranteed. Our last experience with the USDA was about a month, but if something were to hold it up, it would in turn affect when the Biltong gets launched. But even though growing pains cause challenges, we believe fully in Brooklyn Biltong's future, and of re-launching from a place of strength!
