Product Snapshot: Werner Gourmet Meat Snacks Inc., a jerky and snack manufacturer based in Tillamook, Oregon, has launched a new product into the meat snack category with a zero sugar jerky made with grass-fed beef. This new product comes packaged in a 2-ounce bag in three flavors: Original, Salt & Pepper and Unsweetened Teriyaki-Style. Each recipe is formulated with 0 grams of sugar, 0 grams Total Carbs and 18 grams of protein per serving.
"We have seen other jerky brands touting either zero sugar or grass-fed beef, but few are paring the two together," explains president and co-founder of Werner Gourmet Meat Snacks Inc., Ken Werner. "This new product really elevates the Werner brand and brings a unique product to the category."
Werner's Zero Sugar, Grass-Fed beef jerky is an all-natural product, crafted in small batches, minimally processed with no artificial ingredients and gluten free. There are no added nitrites, nitrates or MSG.
"There is a lot of research out there to support this kind of product," said Lauren Seeger, director of marketing. "We reviewed several consumer and snacking-focused surveys which show consumers are substantially decreasing their sugar intake year over year. With the high protein and lean grass-fed beef, this product line really is a true meat snack and aligns perfectly with those following Paleo, Keto, Whole30 and other special diet programs."
The introduction of Werner's Zero Sugar, Grass-Fed Beef Jerky comes just in time for Natural Products Expo East 2019, September 12-14th in Baltimore, where samples of the product will be available to attendees. Werner Jerky will be in booth #2014.
Werner's Zero Sugar, Grass-Fed Beef Jerky is currently available online at WernerJerky.com and in the Werner retail outlet in Tillamook, Oregon.
