Beef jerky and other dehydrated meats are popular protein snacks on the trail. But if you’re a fan of the prepackaged meat stick, you’ve likely had that moment of self-doubt while staring at a rack of pseudo-Slim Jim’s in a gas station on the way to the trail.

What’s actually in these things?

With Ostrim Meat Snacks, there’s no mystery. We checked them out at Outdoor Retailer and they’re made from simple, protein-packed meat.
