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

Yes, our jerky is Free-From all the Top 8 Allergens: Dairy, Eggs, Peanuts, Tree Nuts (we do contain coconut sugar, vinegar and aminos), Fish, Shellfish, Wheat & Soy. Our co-packing facility is dedicated free of peanut, tree nut (not including coconut), egg, fish, shellfish, and mustard. 

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.

This is one of the most commonly asked FAQs related to our 100% grass fed beef jerky. As a family who always struggled to find clean, healthy beef jerky products until we finally started making our own, we understand and commend your efforts to find healthy snacks that are preservative-free.

Our passion for making clean, healthy, high protein snacks stems from our dedication to making clean eating on-the-go a reality. We use coconut sugar and salts to help cure the meat and 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 Springfield, IL. Our product is the first product run in the morning after the strict HACCP level cleaning the night prior to ensure that there is no cross-contamination. Regulators are regularly on site to ensure the highest standards are met. We are also Paleo Certified, which means the Paleo Foundation reviews the origins of every ingredient that we use to make sure that there is no contamination of grains, soy, gluten or dairy along the way.

All of our marinades & spices are 100% organic, and blended with 100% grass-fed, grass-finished non GMO beef. PREVAIL Beef Jerky originated from our personal struggle to find clean and healthy snacks that are devoid of any artificial preservatives or other harmful ingredients. So we know how important the need is to ensure that your family is consuming only the purest, healthiest, and most nourishing snacks, without any GMOs.

Rest assured that everything that goes into making our beef jerky, from the ingredients to the smoke we use to flavor and preserve it, is authentic. We source our organic spices from the most reliable vendors across the world while the main ingredient, the beef, comes from family-owned New Zealand farms that are 100% grass-fed and grass-finished.

Plus, we don’t use any additives at all. With every bite of PREVAIL beef jerky, you’re consuming pure, flavorful, and wholesome goodness.

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.

We work with family farms in New Zealand, where the cows can be pastured all year long.

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?
