Our Gluten-Free Jerky Ingredients

All of our jerky recipes contain no known gluten ingredients, and our kitchens ensure no cross-contamination between products with gluten ingredients and those with none. See for yourself — all Savage Jerky products list their ingredients “above the fold,” front and center right where you can see them. 

Savage Jerky’s signature spice rub, which is the base rub for many of our jerky products, contains no gluten, and we use gluten-free soy and gluten-free tamari sauces on our teriyaki-flavored products.  

Some worcestershire sauces do contain gluten, but the one we use for our Original Beef Jerky does not. These ingredients do not contain gluten:

  • Gluten-free soy marinade: We use gluten-free soy sauce in our marinades.
  • Brown sugar: Cane sugars do not contain gluten (brown sugar is sugar with molasses). Sweet.
  • Molasses: Nope, no gluten in this thick, sweet syrup made from boiled down sugarcane.
  • Sea salt: All the spices and herbs we use are gluten free, including salt. 
  • Liquid smoke: This mixture of water, vinegar, molasses, salt, smoke coloring and flavoring are all free of glutens.
  • Vinegar: All good here, as the distillation process filters out gluten proteins. 

Gluten Free FAQs

Does beef jerky have gluten?

A lot of jerky treats do not contain gluten, which is why you often see them as approved snacks for people who have gluten allergies and intolerances. Most people who suffer from Celiac disease or have gluten allergies know what to look for, including barley, brewer’s yeast, hydrolyzed wheat protein, malt vinegar (or “malt” anything), semolina, and wheat starch. Savage Jerky beef jerky has no known gluten ingredients.

What is the shelf life of jerky?

Jerky was invented as a way to preserve animal meat for long periods, way before refrigeration was invented. Societies all over the world used different methods for drying and flavoring meat, so it would last through harsh winters when animals hibernate and hot summers when foods spoil quickly. Today’s jerky treats can last about 2 years on the shelf, if they’re stored in air-tight packages in a cool, dark location.

Is beef jerky good for a low glycemic diet?

Jerky can be good for people who follow low-glycemic diets, whether it’s because they have diabetes or just want to cut sugar from their diets. If your doctor suggests you follow a low-glycemic diet, you might do well with jerky treats. Jerky tends to be low in sugar and high in protein. Always eat a balanced diet and follow the recommendations of your nutritionist or dietitian.
