Dierdre Elliott, one of the proprietors of the deli, says she,'knows the farmer and the farm' where her biltong is produced, and is satisfied that it is beef. Most of South Africa's biltong - dried strips of cured meat and a much loved snack -- has little to do with the ingredients on the label, according to DNA tests results published today Game biltong which is popular with the health conscious, as it is considered lean and free-range, is the most mis-labelled, according the study by scientists from the Univeristy of the Western Cape.
