Protein is very good for your body; however, traditional protein sources are not as quick or convenient as most carbs. Usually, if they are, they are either fried or unhealthy. For this reason a third of women ages 20 to 40 in the US were found to not get their RDA of protein. Golden Valley Natural jerky is rich in protein allowing you to safely meet your RDA. A high protein diet contributes in lowering blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and triglycerides. It is good for those looking to manage their weight as it keeps you feeling full longer.

is not really bad for everybody. It is, however, proven to cause very bad symptoms for those who have a sensitive stomach or for those who suffer from celiac disease.

No Artificial Ingredients
Most food you find on your grocery shelves is modified with artificial ingredients and additives. A lot of beef jerky available in the market is injected with harmful ingredients before it is made available for consumption. Research has found that artificial ingredients in food can cause cancer, ADHD, tumors, and more when taken continuously over time. Golden Valley Natural jerky is completely free from any artificial ingredients. Being all-natural, it very tasty yet is 100% safe and healthy.
No Added Hormones
Most cattle ranchers use hormones and steroids to improve their production of milk and beef. Though the FDA states that the amount of hormones that make it into the food products we consume is safe, it is wise to try to choose a healthier, safer option when it comes to our daily intake. Golden Valley Natural cattle are 100% organic fed and are never given any hormones or antibiotics. They are grown naturally which means our jerky is made of beef raised the way nature intended.
Most beef jerky in the market is over processed. To lengthen shelf life, producers use a lot of artificial additives that are not good for your health. One of these is MSG. MSG is a popular food flavor enhancer that is considered a neurotoxin because it can overstimulate cells to death. People who consume too much MSG usually suffer from upset stomachs, headaches, or even leg and arm weakness. Though natural glutamate is not bad, synthetic manipulation of glutamate produces a form not found in nature. Golden Valley Natural is 100% MSG free and only uses natural ingredients.
Sodium nitrite is a common ingredient added to meats and fish to improve shelf life. It is a food additive that adds an attractive color to meat and fish and can be found in almost all beef jerky sold in the market today. While sodium nitrite is naturally present in fruits and vegetables, a diet high in sodium nitrites may lead to a health condition called methemoglobinemia which is the inability of your red blood cells to transport oxygen throughout the body. It is also tied to cancer, Type 1 Diabetes, and abdominal pain.
Clean eating is simply about being mindful of the food pathway between its origin and your plate. This means eating whole or “real” foods that are minimally processed, refined, or handled as possible, and kept as close to their natural form as possible. The key to this form of healthy eating is avoiding ultra-processed food, which is usually linked to cancer and infertility as well as other ailments. Golden Valley Natural is organically processed and is all natural. Our organic and all natural line are free from any added hormones or chemicals.

The premise is that our nutritional needs remain best adapted to the diet of our ancestors and that we have not evolved fast enough to be ready for high-calorie, processed food. This protein rich diet recommends that we get 10-35% of our calories from protein. Being organically processed and all natural, Paleo practitioners find Golden Valley Natural organic beef jerky is their snack of choice.
