Q: Why does Pearson Ranch add beef to its jerky?

Products need to have at least 3% of an amenable specie like beef, pork, or chicken to generate mandatory USDA inspection. Having the meat and production of all our products fully inspected by the USDA provides an important assurance to both our partner retailers and our ultimate end-customers.  Therefore, we add a bit of extremely lean beef or pork to our jerky.

The most common sources of gluten are wheat, rye, and barley-based foods. Rest easy, ALL Pearson Ranch Jerky products are Gluten-free.


Q: Is there MSG in Pearson Ranch Jerky products?

All Pearson Ranch Jerky products are free of MSG.
