Beef Jerky

👨‍👦‍👦Father’s Day 👔 - Beef Jerky. Many men I know love beef jerky. Beef jerky today can be full of chemicals, but thankfully we have many companies trying to provide us with better beef jerky... like it used to be.
.
When choosing beef jerky, make sure it has NO:
❌MSG (monosodium glutamate)
.
❌caramel color (Caramel color has 4-methylimidazole in it. In 2007 the federal government ordered a study on this chemical and the outcome was that it caused cancer in mice. The FDA claims it to be a “possible carcinogenic”.
.
❌gmo crops like sugar and soy. (These will be sprayed with glyphosate).
.
❌sodium nitrates or sodium nitrites (WHO classifies deli meats with nitrates as group 1. Group 1 is for carcinogenic items like cigarettes, alcohol, asbestos, arsenic... and deli meats. The EWG says nitrates are their #1 ingredient to avoid).
.
❌high fructose corn syrup
.
❌non organic wheat (high chance it’s sprayed with glyphosate)
.
❌artificial flavoring (code name for 100 chemicals)
.
❌beef given hormones and gmo feed
.
❌hydrolyzed soy or corn protein
.
❌non grass fed beef
.
Remember you don’t have to give up eating an item. Just buy the brand that’s made with real food ingredients instead of man made chemicals.

The ones pictured above are just some of my favorites, not the only good ones. Thankfully there are lots of better choice beef jerky out there. So use my list of “no” items to see if your favorite beef jerky is worth buying.
