Meat sticks are protein snacks that are usually made from beef. However, you can find meat sticks made from pork, turkey, and wild game meats, sometimes mixed with beef. These snacks typically weigh between 0.5 oz. and 1 oz. per stick and they deliver a large amount of protein. Many times, meat sticks will be sold in packs of 12 or more, providing a good value. They often will be individually wrapped, so you can take one at a time as an on-the-go snack. Some meat sticks will have a gluten-free or low-sodium configuration. Calorie, sodium, and fat contents vary widely with meat sticks brands, so read the nutrition label if this concerns you. Refrigeration is recommended for some meat sticks to allow them to have a longer lifespan.
