Biltong is a perishable meat product and should be stored in a cool dry place. Do not keep your biltong (especially wet biltong), closed in the brown paper bag. Note that a higher moisture content product (i.e. wetter biltong) is more susceptible to mould growth, and one should ensure that the product has adequate air flow and ‘breathing’ space between each piece (whole or sliced) as this limits the growing of mould. This means that one should shuffle a bag of wet sliced biltong frequently throughout the day to make air movement possible between the pieces. If wet biltong lies on top of each other for too long, it will mould. So, by giving caution to the air movement and giving the biltong space to “breath”, the possibility of moulding will be much less. Keep the biltong away from moist, warm places and try to keep it in a cool, dry place such as in a refrigerator. Do not keep biltong in a plastic bag as it will increase the possibility of mould growth.

Meat in South Africa is graded mainly by age and fat content. A-grade meat (purple roller marker) is younger animals, where C-grade (red roller marker) meat is older animals. A-grade beef is the most tender grade where C-grade is the least tender. The numbering system on the meat indicates the fat content – a 0 indicates a very lean carcass where a 6 is very fatty.
Difference between Original and Hunter's Biltong
Both our Original and Hunters biltong products are made from beef and the only difference is the spices. The Hunters biltong has a barbeque undertone whereas plain traditional spices are used for the Original biltong.
