    I'm trying to eat real clean right now and was wondering how bad jerky is for you. I know its a great source of protein, but how loaded with sodium is it? Is it somthing I can incoropate into my diet every day? or a treat?:noes:


    Also, over at www.smokedmeats.com where I order, they have salmon jerky, any dietary info on that?

    Usually a lot of sodium. Look up the nutritional info.

    I'm no jerky-ologist but I believe smoked jerky has less sodium than your traditional cured jerky.

    Beef jerky is an awesome snack. The salmon jerky probably has similar nutrition content, maybe a tiny bit less fat (beef jerky doesn't have much to begin with).

    Just get a dehydrater and make your own. Tastes alot better and probably ALOT better for you.
