Frequently Asked Questions

Our jerky is certified gluten-free with The Gluten-Free Manufacturing Program (GFMP), endorsed by the National Celiac Association.

PREVAIL jerky is completely soy free. We use Organic coconut aminos, a popular Paleo soy sauce substitute, to give our Umami and Lemongrass flavors their amazing and unique flavor profiles.

Since there are no artificial preservatives it is best to refrigerate our product if you don’t eat it in one sitting...but we won’t judge if you do.

Natural sugars and salts help cure the meat, we then smoke it with Cherry Wood to naturally preserve it. (The natural smoke also happens to add tons of flavor.) Since we don't use additives to preserve our product, please keep refrigerated after opening.

All of our jerky is made locally in Illinois.

All of our marinades are 100% Organic, and blended with 100% Grass-Fed, Grass-Finished non GMO beef. 

Most meat is “Grass-Fed” but it’s “Grass-Fed, Grass-Finished” meat that’s special. Grass-Finished refers to what cattle are fed in the last period of their lives. Most cattle are fed grain toward the end to help them put on weight. However, when they are grass finished, they are kept on the pasture, which results in higher quality (and tastier) meat.

Our beef is from a co-op  of Family Farms in New Zealand where the climate is ideal all year round and the cattle are raised in ideal conditions. They are healthy, happy, and therefore don’t require any antibiotics or hormones. Fun fact: Did you know GMOs were banned in New Zealand?
