Even the concept of uncooked dried meant used to bizarre to me, but now it’s one of my favorite foods. I absolutely love it. And it’s perfect for dieting because it takes so long to eat, which is pretty much all you want to do during a diet.
Done right it’s a joy, but done wrong and it’s like eating salty roof tiles. Let’s see how Myprotein’s version stacks up.
Strips of low fat beef, dried and cured to a low carbohydrate recipe. Myprotein do five flavors: Original, Classic, Smoked, Cajun Hot, and Teriyaki.
Taste & Texture
The base tastes of salt and beef are dominant, but the added flavorings are detectable and strong enough.
The texture is chewy, but variably so. Sometimes a whole pack is downright flaky and tender, almost as much as American-style recipes with a lot of sugar. However, as with most jerky the occasional piece is considerably chewier, and there can be difference between packs. It’s never unpleasantly tough, though.
Serving size: 50 g
Fat: 2.8 g
Carbohydrate: 1.9 g (0.9 g sugar)
Protein: 25 g
Salt: 2.5 g (969 mg sodium)
Myprotein Beef Jerky Rating: 8.5/10
God I love this stuff. All flavors are great, but my favorites are probably Teriyaki and Classic. Beef with salt is a delicious combination, and Myprotein beef jerky lives up to it.
I don’t fear fat or carbs, but I like the fact they use a low fat, low carbohydrate recipe. It just allows a bit more dietary control, which can be useful.
Suffice it to say I buy it all the time. Maybe too much… It’s actually one of my main sources of protein.
This is by far the most consistently cheap low-fat, low-carb jerky I’ve found in the UK—particularly if you buy the mixed 10-pack, and even further if you get it on special.
You can [could] order a Myprotein beef jerky mixed 10 pack for £18.80 or individual packs for £2.49.

Edit, some years down the track: wow, they used to sell this stuff cheap. There came a point where it drastically increased in price. It was gold while it lasted.
