I eat Jack Links because it has the highest protein content of all the ones I have looked at. It has 14-15 grams (depending on the flavor) while others usually have 9-12 grams. I get a big bag at Sam's Club that is 1 lb for $15. (Which is more expensive than prime rib!! But, far more convenient.)
Some of my go-to's:
Trader Joe's Buffalo Jerky and Teriyaki Turkey Jerky, both 60 calories & 11 grams of protein per ounce
Ostrim Beef & Elk Habanero jerky, 90 calories & 14 grams of protein per stick
Ostrim Beef & Ostrich Jerky, 80 calories & 14 grams of protein per stick
Delicious Onion & Pepper Marlin Jerky, 107 calories & 24 grams of protein per ounce
Of the easily available commercial jerky brands I have found Jack Link's to have the best protein to carbohydrate ratio. The problem with many jerky brands is the use of a lot of sugar to flavor the jerky. While Jack Link's does use sugar, the "stats" are pretty good.
If you are able, the best and healthiest jerky is homemade!
