How is jerky that is made without added Nitrites safe to eat?

We use the cook process to kill harmful bacteria so that the extra chemicals aren’t needed.We make sure it is dry enough (but not too dry!) to prevent mold.Finally, we vacuum seal the bags and add oxygen absorbents so it will be as fresh as the day we pack it!
We do not use any preservatives in any of the products we produce.

What makes Katie’s process different?

To start with, WE TAKE OUR TIME.We trim and slice the meat then soak it in the marinade. That’s where it STAYS for DAYS! Then it goes in the dehydrator while our experienced jerky experts watch over it until it reaches perfection. Each and every piece is hand selected for packaging.

What about Katie’s beef?

The meat we use is always fresh! It’s trimmed so our jerky is 97% fat free. It’s USDA Choice grade beef which is the same quality you would serve up for dinner to your most honored guests! It’s cut with precision so that the slices are consistent, not too thick and not too thin. This allows the jerky to be perfectly tender with the right amount of moisture to hold in the natural beef flavor amidst all of the other seasonings.

What’s special about Katie’s Jerky flavors?

They are BIG and BOLD! The first flavor you will ALWAYS get is fresh BEEF! After that, it’s whatever the package says and a LOT of it! Our recipes are honed to perfection, and when you find the perfect flavor the challenge will be trying to make it last! Why fight it?
