Taking risks is what Baja Jerky is all about. They know that big risks lead to big rewards, and their commitment to that speaks to every aspect of the brand’s culture. So, while Baja Jerky may still be one of the new kids on the block compared to many other well-established beef jerky brands, more and more people are choosing to load up their packs with Baja Jerky over any other brand. That’s because they know what it takes to fuel an adventure—epic, one-of-a-kind flavors and premium, quality ingredients.
What makes Baja Jerky a cut above the rest is its commitment to creating delicious, flavorful meat snacks without preservatives or additives like loads of sugar or sodium. Instead, they work closely with a Michelin-star chef who creates truly unique spice blends and rubs that pay respect to the vibrant flavors of Baja. Add that to premium jerky created from high-quality, humanely raised beef, and you’ve got a recipe for the best beef jerky experience.
Baja Jerky takes what you love about jerky and elevates it to a whole new level. They know that when you are in need of a high-protein meat snack, it needs to be extremely tender and delicious. If you are more of a jerky purist, they offer Traditional which takes the classic flavor of hickory-smoked jerky and elevates it with the addition of real, preservative-free ingredients featuring garlic, avocado, turmeric, and a splash of fresh lemon juice. If it’s a flavor adventure you’re after, they’ve got you covered there, too! If you can take the heat, try Lime and Serrano Pepper. This is their spiciest flavor created with a blend of real chilies and peppers.
Baja Jerky Contains No Nitrates, Preservatives, or Added Hormones
Baja Jerky was created because they needed a snack that could keep up without artificial ingredients and tons of sugar additives that will ultimately slow you down.
That’s why real, preservative-free ingredients are the backbone of everything they do. Their best seller, Salsa Fresca, is created with authentic ingredients like naturally sweet vine-ripened tomatoes, the spicy kick of fresh jalapenõs, and the signature addition of onions, cilantro, and a splash of zesty lime juice. Meanwhile, one of their newest flavors, Street Taco, takes all the flavors of your favorite roadside stop and transforms it into a hand-crafted, epic jerky snack with the addition of a unique chili seasoning blend.
Fueled By Good Times and Great People
What really makes Baja Jerky stand out is their commitment to adventure. One of the hallmarks of the brand is the adventure sports industry in Baja California that has served as their main inspiration from the very beginning.
They sponsor several athletes in the adventure sport community including Señor Baja himself, Larry Roeseler. Roeseler is a motorsport hall of famer with a decades-long career in the off-road racing community. It’s this commitment to pushing the boundaries that has Baja Jerky creating flavors that challenge the status quo.
Who thought that flavors like Sweet Orange or Churro could be in a jerky? Baja Jerky took this inspiration and challenged the ideas of what a jerky could be. The risk has paid off with unique flavors that work for our taste buds as well as our lifestyle.
