The Secret to Superior Beef Jerky: Choosing the Right Beef

At Nive Beef Jerky, we understand that the cornerstone of exceptional beef jerky is the quality of the beef itself. Jerky production is unique—it’s all about preserving the natural essence of the beef through dehydration, without relying on heavy sauces or cooking methods to mask the quality of the meat. This is why we are committed to using only the finest ingredients, starting with premium cuts of beef.

Selecting the Best Cut for Beef Jerky

Many people wonder which cuts of beef yield the best jerky. It’s a common myth that the most expensive cuts are the best for jerky. However, the truth is that the best jerky comes from the leanest cuts. While fatty cuts may be great for other dishes, they’re not ideal for jerky, as fat does not dry well and can cause the jerky to spoil faster.

At Nive Beef Jerky, we prefer using MSA grade Australian topside, recognized for its lean quality and superior flavour. This choice ensures our jerky has minimal fat and maximum protein, essential for a healthy, low-calorie snack.

The Downside of ‘Candy Jerky’

Unlike some manufacturers who might use ground meat or lesser-quality cuts to reduce costs, we steer clear of these shortcuts. Low-quality jerky often referred to as ‘candy jerky’, usually contains poor cuts or meat by-products mixed with excessive artificial flavours and sugars. This type of jerky is not only less nutritious but also packed with calories and unwanted additives.

Why MSA Grade Beef Makes the Difference

Our commitment to quality extends to ensuring our beef is Meat Standards Australia (MSA) certified. MSA is a grading system designed to enhance the consistency and eating quality of beef and sheep meat. This system grades beef based on various factors influencing quality from farm to table, including the animal’s handling and feed.

What Does MSA Grade Mean for Our Jerky?

Using MSA grade beef ensures that every piece of Nive Beef Jerky is crafted from beef that meets high standards for tenderness, juiciness, and flavour. This grading system ensures that our beef has been raised and processed according to stringent guidelines, guaranteeing a premium product for our customers.

Supporting Australian Beef

By choosing Australian MSA grade topside beef, we not only provide you with the best jerky but also support sustainable and ethical farming practices in Australia. Our commitment helps promote higher welfare standards in agriculture, ensuring our cattle are raised in stress-free environments, benefiting both the quality of the product and the industry at large.
