The Difference Between Jerky and Biltong is How They Are Made

BILTONG VS. JERKY: What's in YOUR Bag?

Biltong
The meat remains in a vinegar and spice-based marinade until cured. Once cured, it’s air-dried, then finally it’s cut
into thick pieces or thin strips and packaged or served as is. The result is tender true meat flavor
without all the added sugar and salt.

Mass processed jerky
The meat is first sliced into strips, soaked in a sugar and salt mixture, then dried on a rack in a dehydrator or cooked in an oven for up to 12 hours. This often results in drier, tougher pieces of meat with an excessive amount of sugar and salt.
