Leading a healthy lifestyle is important for all age groups. From the busy family constantly on the go to the health conscious millennials, snacks need to be taste good and be good for them. Jerky is becoming a popular on-the-go snack option. The downside of many mass produced jerky is the added sugar and fillers. Think Jerky, a Chicago chef-driven jerky company, offers a healthy jerky that consumers crave.
“Think Jerky brings jerky to a whole new level,” said company founder Ricky Hirsch. “We’ve transformed jerky into a great-tasting sensible lifestyle product that is perfect for people who want to enjoy a protein-rich food that is really healthy. Our fans prefer chefs over scientists, farms over factories and taking the time to think before they eat.”
Think Jerky offers beef and turkey jerky that is made from grass-fed beef and free-range turkey raised with no added hormones or antibiotics. Each single serving bag has 100 calories, 16 grams of protein and only 6 grams of carbs. The Paleo-friendly jerky is gluten-free, nitrate-free, GMO free, nutrient dense with no filler and have the salt and sugar as mainstream jerky products.
Think Jerky founder Hirsch partnered with three top chefs to create innovative and flavor-packed jerky recipes, including two-time James Beard award winner and Food Network host, Gale Gand from Chicago; three-star Michelin chef and Food & Wine Best New Chef Laurent Gras from New York, and farm-to-table expert and Baconfest Champion Matt Troost from Chicago. As the product line develops, Hirsch plans to partner with new chefs to create more flavors.
