Paleovalley’s Beef and Turkey Snack Sticks

I first stumbled upon the Paleovalley website when I saw an ad for their 100% Grass Fed Beef Sticks on Instagram. I have always been a huge fan of beef sticks and jerky, so of course, I had to give them a try!

These beef sticks (aka paleo jerky) are a healthy snack marketed toward people who follow the paleo diet or who are health conscious and, in general, looking for grass-fed jerky. High-quality Grass-fed beef sticks and jerky are quite hard to come by, and Paleovalley’s snack sticks are some of the best tastings I’ve had!

I’m here to share with you everything you need to know about Paleovalley’s Beef Sticks and what I thought of them and how you can get 10% to try these tasty snacks yourself!

 

Who is Paleovalley?

You can easily see that all the ingredients are wholesome and this is a high-quality product that is very nutritional.

 

Grass Fed vs. Grain Fed Beef

One thing that is clearly emphasized is that these beef sticks are made from 100% grass-fed beef. You may be wondering why this is such a big deal or what the difference is between “grass-fed” and “regular” beef (corn-fed beef).

Here are a few of the many benefits of Grass-fed beef:

  • Two to four times higher omega 3 levels
  • An ideal ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 fatty acids – aids in the reduction of inflammation (Click to read more about how inflammation affects your health)
  • Three to five times higher levels of CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) – CLA has known cancer-fighting and fat burning properties
  • Much higher levels of vitamins A and E
  • Higher in B vitamins thiamin and riboflavin
  • Contains the building blocks for glutathione – your body’s master antioxidant
  • An excellent source of complete protein – contains ALL of the amino acids your body needs

Grass-fed beef also helps keep your ratio of omega’s at a healthy proportion. Corn-fed beef also is much higher in fat, but it’s not very good for your body and is high in cholesterol.

Grass-fed beef is significantly healthier and an overall better choice than regular meat.

Pasture Raised Turkey Sticks

New Turkey Snack Sticks!

Paleovalley’s Turkey sticks are great for people who don’t want to eat as much red meat, or sometimes just want a different flavor altogether. These are a very new addition, and I was super excited to try them!

Paleovalley tries their best to go back to the paleolithic diet as authentic as possible.

I really like about Paleovalley is that their turkey sticks are that they are free range! They only source their turkey meat from happy turkeys which are allowed to run as much as they want on large grass pasture. Just like they in the wild, this makes the meat leaner and taste significantly better!

Here are a handful of other reasons why Paleovalley Turkey Snack Sticks are better in quality, and taste than other brands:

Organic Spices

Paleovally uses organic natural spices to enhance the flavor on the sticks. Organic spices are not only healthier, but they taste a lot better as well! Since they are Organic, this means they are not sprayed with pesticides or herbicides. Many of these harmful chemicals have been proven to be carcinogenic. Paleovalley’s products are free of worry from these products which is huge for me!

Naturally Occurring Probiotics

Natural is best, I am glad they believe in that because that is what I think in whole-heartedly! Virtually all other similar snack stick products use GMO corn-based citric acid encapsulated in hydrogenated oils to process their products. Thanks to their fermentation process, each stick contains 1 billion probiotic CFUs! That seems to be the highest effective range for probiotics, it’s basically considered the gold standard now. Because it has been found out that more isn’t always better, there is a law of diminishing returns with probiotics – as with everything.

Flavor

Because of the length Paleovalley goes through to keep their products as healthy and natural as they can they just end up tasting so much better! You can tell that they really care about their product and reputation. I have extremely glad to have found a company like them to order one of my favorite snacks from. The flavor you get from the turkey sticks (and beef sticks) are incredible!

 

Flavor and Taste

If I had to describe the overall taste of these snack sticks in one word it would be: delicious! You can’t go wrong with any of the flavors. I’ll do my best to describe the taste of each of the beef and turkey snack stick flavors:

Original Flavor

Original Ingredients: 100% grass-fed beef, water, unprocessed sea salt, organic dextrose from tapioca (used to initiate the fermentation process), celery juice, organic black pepper, organic red pepper, organic garlic powder, organic coriander, lactic acid starter culture from non-GMO beets, stuffed in a dye-free beef collagen casing.

Original is always the “safest” choice if you are unsure what flavor you might like. It tends to be the baseline and the flavor that is typically the most loved.

Paloevalley’s Original beef snack stick flavor is no exception. They are delicious, and if you are on the fence on decided between flavors, you can’t go wrong with the original flavor.

 

Summer Sausage Beef Snack Stick

Summer Sausage: 100% grass-fed beef, water, unprocessed sea salt, organic dextrose from tapioca (used to initiate the fermentation process), celery juice, organic allspice, organic coriander, organic nutmeg, organic white pepper, organic black pepper, organic mustard seed, organic paprika, lactic acid starter culture from non-GMO beets, stuffed in a dye-free beef collagen casing.

I’m not sure how to describe this flavor other than it tastes, basically as the name would imply! It tastes like your classic summer sausage only even better. If you like the traditional summer sausage than I think you’ll enjoy this flavor!

  

Garlic Summer Sausage

Garlic Summer Sausage: 100% grass-fed beef, water, unprocessed sea salt, organic dextrose from tapioca (used to initiate the fermentation process), celery juice, organic allspice, organic coriander, organic nutmeg, organic white pepper, organic black pepper, organic mustard seed, organic paprika, organic garlic powder, lactic acid starter culture from non-GMO beets, stuffed in a dye-free beef collagen casing.

Garlic Summer Sausage is my personal favorite. I love garlic and use it in A LOT of my cooking, so I’m always attracted to anything with the “garlic” flavor. It doesn’t have an overwhelming garlic taste, but it’s just the right amount.

 

Jalapeno Grass Fed Beef Snack Stick

Jalapeño: 100% grass-fed beef, water, unprocessed sea salt, organic dextrose from tapioca (used to initiate the fermentation process), celery juice, organic jalapeño powder, organic chopped jalapeño, organic black pepper, organic red pepper, organic garlic powder, organic coriander, lactic acid starter culture from non-GMO beets, stuffed in a dye-free beef collagen casing.

I’m always hesitant when trying anything with “Jalapeno” in the title. Sometimes Jalapeno flavored foods are rather mild, and other times it can mean the food has a good kick to it! (My spicy tolerance is pretty low)

The Jalapeno has a good kick to it. It tastes similar to the original with an added spices. Overall, its a right balance of spices that are mild and flavorful but will not leave your mouth feeling like it’s burning.

The Jalapeño flavor is also great if you would like a little bit of a spicy kick. Since you can only choose one flavor per pack, I would order two so flavors, so you have a little variety, but at the same time, you can get a sample of the overall quality and taste.

My husband prefers the jalapeño flavor because he loves the extra zest!

 

Teriyaki Grass Fed Beef Snack Stick

Teriyaki: 100% grass fed beef, organic raw honey, teriyaki style seasoning (sea salt, organic ginger, organic paprika, organic nutmeg, organic onion powder, organic fenugreek), organic dextrose from tapioca (used to initiate the fermentation process), teriyaki sauce (organic coconut sap, organic garlic, sea salt, organic ginger, organic cayenne pepper), celery juice powder, lactic acid starter culture from non-GMO beets, stuffed in a dye-free beef collagen casing.

Teriyaki is the most recent flavor addition and it’s a classic favorite for a lot of people. If you typically like teriyaki flavoring, I think you will like this beef stick. It has the right about of zest and a good balance between salty and teriyaki sweetness.

Reviews and Testimonials

My Experience:

These snack sticks are the perfect snack for me. They are high in protein and very satisfying. It’s a great snack, especially when I am running out the door and need a snack to fuel my stomach.

It’s my first choice for a healthy and high protein snack. Here is some of my observations and things I did and didn’t like about these snacks.

Texture: They are easy to chew. Other brands have a hard, dry, and “waxy” taste whereas Paleovalley’s are firm but soft and juicy. They have a nice “snap” when you take a bite, so they are in the ideal balance between hard and soft.

Oily/Grease: It doesn’t leave my figures with the greasy residue that you would have if you were eating a slim jim.

Portion Size: The size is perfect in my opinion. One snack stick fills me up pretty well, especially when I pair it with something.

I was always a fan of beef snack sticks, and after trying Paleovalley’s snack sticks, I am even more obsessed with this delicious (and healthy) snack! The most significant difference between your typical “gas station” beef snacks and Paleovalley’s 100% All Natural Grass Fed Beef Snack sticks is the noticeable difference in quality and great taste.

My husband and I both love them. We both like them for breakfast. Neither of us is very hunger in the morning, and I don’t have much of an appetite when I wake up.

Favorite Snacking Combo: Beef Snack Sticks and a Cheese Stick to go!

Pro Tip: I keep my Paleovalley beef and turkey snack sticks in the fridge. Since we like in a tropical climate, storing them in the refrigerator will make them last longer but eating them cold is really, and I think it makes them taste even better.
