Healthy Protein Snack
Did you know that Tiki Hawaiian Gourmet Jerky is one of the highest protein content snacks available? Diets that have at least 20% of the calories from protein are considered high protein diets. If the protein ratio exceeds 30%, the diet is said to be a very high protein diet. As a point of reference, Tiki Hawaiian Gourmet’s Beef Jerky calories are almost 50% from protein. Even our Bacon Jerky passes the 20% protein ratio. The average diet of most Americans contains only 12-16% of calories from protein.
Recent research has shown a clear link between protein intake and reduced blood pressure and cardiovascular disease. Although the mechanisms are not yet fully understood, the connection is clear. Eating more protein can reduce your risk for heart disease. Given that heart disease is one of the biggest killers in America, this is good news indeed!
Protein plays a formative role in the composition of skin, hair, bone and muscle. Eating a diet rich in protein ensures that your body has sufficient quantities of the building blocks necessary for healthy development and maintenance of these components.
