All right, t-nationers. I’m on the run frequently and I’m looking for the best high-protein meat stick options that I can buy. Berardi did a review of ProLean markets Smoked Emu Snack Stick back in a 2002 article of stuff we like. Unfortunately, I can’t find this vendor on the web anywhere. I’m looking for alternative high protein, low fat meat sticks that I can get the best bang for my buck.
The best option I’ve found online so far is the Ostrim (Ostrich) meat stick which has 13 grams of protein, 1.5 grams of fat, under 3 grams of carbs. I would rather find even higher protein sticks but if worst comes to worst, I will just eat 2 or 3 of these at a time.
The thing that is frustrating is that many mid-west vendors sell meat sticks online but they either don’t show nutritional value so you have no idea how much protein is in the stick or if they show nutritional value they have a paltry 4 grams of protein per stick. Any recommendations?
