The Best Grass-Fed Beef Sticks

If you’re going to build muscle, you need protein, and if you’re looking for simple, natural protein, you can’t do much better than grass-fed beef. Compared to conventional grain-fed, grass-fed beef has less fat overall, and the fat it does have is generally healthier—and better-tasting. Plus, a grass-fed cow just has better life than a cow that lives on a feedlot, and that’s something everyone can feel good about. These are our picks for the best snack-size beef sticks you can find.

Pure Meaty Flavor

Rich beef and spices make this a snack we’d be happy to have everyday.

What We Liked

You don’t need fancy flavors to have a satisfying snack. Case-in-point, these simple, filler-free beef sticks. Unlike a lot of meat snacks on the market, Paleovalley eschews preservatives, instead fermenting its sticks traditionally to make a shelf-stable snack that doesn’t need refrigeration and fits easily into a backpack, pocket or glove compartment. The grass-based diet leaves it with 2-4 times more omega-3 fatty acids than grain-fed, too. Get them here.
