Protein is an essential dietary nutrient that helps build and repair muscles in the body. The amount of protein you need on a daily basis depends on how active you are, how old you are, how big your frame is and how much muscle mass you have. Beef jerky contains about 13 grams of protein per ounce- which is pretty good! What is Protein?

Protein is an essential dietary nutrient that helps build and repair muscles in the body. The amount of protein you need on a daily basis depends on how active you are, how old you are, how big your frame is and how much muscle mass you have. Protein can be found in many different foods including beef jerky, lean meat, eggs as well as vegetables like broccoli or spinach which contain about 12-16 grams per cup!

Is There Such A Thing As Too Much Protein?

Protein is so important for building muscle and repairing the body it’s sometimes called “the building blocks of life.” But how much protein you need a day also depends on your age, how active you are, how big your frame is and how much muscle mass you have.

If you’re not exercising regularly or if someone has heart disease or kidney problems they may want to be careful about eating too much protein as overconsumption can lead to health complications like thinning hair, weight gain, high cholesterol levels and even increased risk of cancer.

There’s no such thing as too little protein! Protein helps build strong muscles- but how much we need each day depends on our age, activity level (or lack thereof), size and amount of muscle mass.

To get the most bang for your buck, you can also combine different protein sources- like eggs and turkey bacon or salmon with brown rice- to create a delicious meal that will keep hunger at bay!

Protein in Beef Jerky

As previously mentioned, beef jerky has 13 grams of protein per ounce.  You’ll find a range of protein in different types of jerky, but beef jerky is usually the highest.

Beef jerky comes dried and peppered with seasonings like garlic, onion, soy sauce and chili pepper to make it taste more appealing. It’s not always vegan- some flavors contain honey or sugar for those sweet cravings. The meat doesn’t have any water content anymore so you’re getting 100% pure protein when you eat this snack!

Beef jerky is a healthier protein source than some of the other options out there, but it still should be eaten in moderation. One ounce contains about 13 grams of protein and only 80 calories, which makes beef jerky an attractive alternative to many other snacks on the market today that offer much less nutrition for more fat and sugar content. However, eating too much red meat can lead to health complications like heart disease or high cholesterol so make sure you enjoy your jerky responsibly!
