Pros and cons of indulging in biltong

Biltong is a loved South African snack that nobody can resist. We know it as the salty piece of dried meat that can keep our chompers occupied for hours. What we don’t know is that there are many healthy reasons why biltong is good for us.

It is obviously more healthier than the bag of chips or chocolates that we buy.

Whichever you decide, biltong is pretty great and here’s a video on how to make your own:
