Old Wisconsin has been known as a sausage company which led to Sheboygan, Wisconsin being known as the “Bratwurst Capital of the World.” Being a player in the meat industry, it was not a surprise for them to also release a beef jerky product as a part of their brand. Though, it is no longer on their site (they have focused on meat sticks), we have seen stores selling their beef jerky online.
On one of the sites we have found, this warning precedes the description of the product.
Looking at the ingredients of Old Wisconsin, beef jerky, one will see that it has some of the common ingredients in most jerky today. Further inspection revealed that it has ingredients like MSG, Sodium Ascorbate, Silicon Dioxide and Sodium Nitrite which are not found on all-natural jerky like Golden Valley Natural beef jerky. Another ingredient that necessitated a warning includes the high sodium content which the site called a sodium bombshell. Every serving of Old Wisconsin beef jerky has 200mg more sodium than a serving of our all-natural jerky.
Old Wisconsin does not list the beef jerky on their site any longer. Their meat sticks are also now free of MSG. This is a really good sign that they are moving towards healthier snacking options for consumers.
