If you are like most backpackers, you know the overall benefits of bison meat over other forms of red meat. It contains good fats, cholesterol and high percentages of protein.
Tanka Bar Buffalo Cranberry Jerky Bites are especially healthy, containing polyunsaturated fat and Omega-3 fatty acids. Both necessary components of an active lifestyle. They also contain more antioxidant phenols than almost all of the normal fruits one carries onto the trail, such as apple chips.
In the flavor department, these bits provide a hefty tartness from the cranberry. If you are in the mood for something a little more spicy, look no further than the Hot Spice Pepper Blend. This blends the cranberry flavor with that of red pepper, black pepper, jalapeño and habanero. Trust us, it’s not for the faint of heart.
Best of all, Tanka bites are made from buffalo meat which contains no hormones, gluten, dairy products, MSG or artificial preservatives.
All in all, this product is far and away one of the healthiest trail pick me ups imaginable and was a pleasure to review.
