Biltong makes a great snack if you are a follower of the Paleo diet.
What is the Paleo Diet?
The Paleo diet is centered around the idea that for optimal health, modern humans should eat in a a far more similar way to our hunter-gatherer ancestors.
This means eating whole, unprocessed, highly nutritious, foods. Putting an emphasis on grass fed meats with wholesome natural lifestyles. The diet also includes eggs, wild-caught seafood, and vegetables. Plus fruit, nuts, and seeds.
This is where Biltong comes in as a great food for Paleo dieters.

- Extremely low in carbohydrates.
- Biltong contains only 4 or 6 grams of fat per 100 grams.
- Morley Butchers Biltong is made from prime cuts of grass fed Scottish Beef.
What is Biltong?
Biltong is traditional South African dried meat that has been around for hundreds of years and is eaten as a healthy snack. We produce our own very authentic delicious Biltong from a traditional recipe and technique. Beef for the Biltong is cured and dried on our premises in a five day process.
We use a traditional Biltong recipe of authentic South African herbs and spices to produce two types of Biltong: Original or “Chillibite” Biltong; for those who like a little more kick!
We choose the meat; a premium quality Scotch Beef produced to very high standards of farm and animal welfare, (sourced from Millers of Speyside). Selecting each piece for the perfect mix of fat marbling and lean muscle to give great flavour and texture to the finished Biltong. High quality ingredients ensure that our Biltong is exceptionally good.
