Very little healthy in jerky except a little protein. It's loaded with sodium. Of course if an athlete sweats a lot, it could be beneficial. Otherwise, nada.

Not sure what part of "minimally processed" you missed. And a "little protein"? It has more protein than most high protein bars and mixes on the market in serving comparison. Yes it has sodium but the local company is doing "minimally processed" for a reason. Jerky is listed by most men's and women's bodybuilding and weighting sites as the high protein snack you should be eating now that the meat and processing has gotten better. Plus they aren't living on the stuff. It's a snack. And a protein boost at that, and for athletes that spend a lot of time in the weight room and other exercising that can be important.

For a couch potato who's idea of exercise is getting up to get a beer store bought jerky isn't good for you. And neither is just about every other "snack food" out there. These are athletes who burn through several thousand calories a day. If our nutrition and HES dept (who BTW are consulted on everything that our SA's receive) say it's ok I'm going to defer to them since they are the experts.

My response comes from people in the HES dept and in athletic nutrition, just FYI.

Why would we want the opinion of nutrition "experts" when we have NewApp?
