The healthiest beef jerky is homemade beef jerky made with grass fed beef.

When it comes to the healthiest commercially made or store bought Jerky that would also be the beef jerky or other Jerky made from meats that are made using grass fed, hormone free, organic beef or other meats.

The Jerky will say if it's organic or what it's made from and eating those types of Jerky is healthier for you than the other types of Jerky.

Commercially made beef jerky and other types of jerky contain lots of sodium which is not good for you in excess.

Beef Jerky does contain some nutrition though and when eaten in small amounts is healthy but when eaten too much the beef jerky can become bad for your health.

Beef Jerky is bad for your health when consumed in excess because beef jerky is high in sodium and other additives and is a highly processed food.

Just like other processed foods they are bad for your health when eaten in excess but in moderation the beef jerky is healthy for you.

Eating a few sticks of beef jerky everyday is not gonna harm your health but if you eat 15 or more beef jerky's everyday then it could be harmful.

The bad thing about beef jerky when it comes to what is bad about beef jerky for your health is the beef jerky is a highly processed food and contains a lot of sodium which is not good for your health in excess.

Beef Jerky that is store bought is very high in sodium, with a 1-ounce (28-gram) serving providing roughly 22% of your daily sodium allowance, which is set at 2,300 mg per day.

Although beef jerky in moderation is nutritious and contains protein and other healthy natural ingredients but too much beef jerky can lead to heart disease, weight gain, heart attacks, strokes and other health issues.

Beef jerky is however a great source of protein and high in many vitamins and minerals, including zinc, iron, vitamin B12, phosphorus, and folate.

And beef jerky is one of the healthier snacks when compared to chips and other junk food.

But too much beef jerky could cause health issues.

So only eat the beef jerky in moderation.

The healthiest beef jerky though would be homemade beef jerky without all the sodium and other additives that commercially made beef jerky contains.
