Natural vs Commercial Jerky: Which is Better?
There are benefits to each but jerky created with a natural focus is far superior for a handful of reasons. For consumers who want top of the line product with sustainability and health as a top priority at the manufacturing level, stick to natural jerky!
Though commercial jerky is often more convenient to get at Big Box stores like Walmart, Target, or your local grocery store, it is often filled with unnecessary preservatives and chemicals. Large jerky manufacturers want their product to last as long as possible on the Big Box store shelves, so they have a lesser probability of getting thrown away due to it going bad. This is why jerky bought in large stores has such a long shelf life. Commercial jerky can also contain a lot of added sugar - cutting down the health benefits of eating jerky as a quick snack or on-the-go meal.
