Pap’s beef sticks are 100% USDA pure American beef. Unlike most other beef jerky brands, fillers such as pork, corn solids, soy flour or mechanically separated chicken are NEVER used. Most commercially marketed beef sticks will contain one or all of those ingredients. Pap’s follows old world sausage making techniques that make a much better beef stick. Using only the finest quality beef, seasonings and spices available.
