Following the history of jerky from its humble beginnings as a way to sustain life during the Aztec and Indian era as well as seeing how jerky worked for explorers over the past hundreds and thousands of years, jerky has come full circle to where we are now in history. Jerky today has become a great addition to sustaining life in many different ways. Let’s take a look at what jerky can do for you.
As our world has evolved and inventions brought us electricity, refrigeration and freezers, jerky took a back seat and became less of a necessity and more of a snack. It has been a popular snack item for many years but lately jerky is moving from simply an occasional item into a useful food source again.
Today we look at jerky with new eyes. It is a lean source of protein that gives energy and remains low fat so it has become important to those looking for a lean, healthy lifestyle.
Jerky is important to those that are in the military as it is easy to travel with and it can make a meal in a moment when you do not have the ability to eat. Sports enthusiasts love them as they keep hunger at bay while in tournaments or during workouts providing necessary protein for power.
Jerky as a snack item is a great way to fulfill an empty stomach for the kids coming home and families love them because they can be packed into lunches and backpacks, taken on trips of every kind and it provides delicious nutrition. It is the perfect item to keep on hand in case of emergencies and natural disasters.
