Bret Boone declares Brandt Beef Jerky as best beef jerky

Truck stops, convienance stores, and gas stations across the U.S. prepare for the latest major league player in the beef jerky arena, BrandtBeef jerky makes the show.
BUENA PARK, Calif. - April 29, 2013 - PRLog -- Baseball great Bret Boone officially endorses Brandt Beef™ Jerky as his top choice.

(IJR NEWS 4/29/2013) Beef jerky, the infamous greasy Slim Jim, and other meats that won’t be discussed used to be found mainly in truck stops and convenience stores.  Well not anymore, from baseball great Bret Boone and his latest commercial broadcast endorsement of and it's  beef Jerky, to health conscious mega stores such as Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s, beef jerky is officially on the radar.

According to Komo news, sales of these beefy treats are up almost 13 percent in the past year. Consumer Reports just checked out all kinds of “beef to go” to see whether any are worth buying. Although Oh Boy Oberto claimed top honors, our writers agreed with Bret Boone, and felt Brandt Beef Jerky was the top beef jerky producer.

Studies by consumer reports showed that meat sticks have more fat, calories, and saturated fat than beef jerky. Beef jerky ( is traditionally made from lean cuts of meat, and it’s cooked over low heat for a long time. So the end product comes out very low in fat. A rare amount of natural beef producers will give up their lean cuts to make beef jerky. We found only Brandt Beef to be a natural producer and achieving top tasting honors to boot.  Surprisingly, their prices were right in line or lower than the others when compared with cost per ounce comparison.

But, many facts remain, all of the beef products are undoubtedly loaded with sodium. 7 Select Original has the most, with 600 milligrams per serving.  If you eat the whole bag, which is easy to do because it’s pretty small, you’re eating 1,800 milligrams of sodium. That’s more than the American Heart Association recommends per day.

As for taste, four beef jerkies rated unsurpassed in our judgment. They are: Oh Boy Oberto Original, Pacific Gold Original, Jerky, and Market Pantry Original from Target.

Studies show that it is probably a better choice for lean protein, however, the consumer might be wise to check with their cardiologist if they plan to go on a all-beef Atkins diet with jerky.

Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods combat the sodium issue but failed in taste by all reviews. In Consumer Reports’ tests, they weren’t the preeminent tasting. Brandt Beef has been carrying beef jerky for a long time and has just launched it’s exclusive website, to find all Brandt Beef products including beef jerky, visit
