Overall Score: B

FLAVOR FACTOR: B

Laura’s Lean Original beef jerky has a clean taste with hint of initial sweetness, and then pepper. The added smoke flavor is an afterthought to earthy pepper flavor that comes through as you chew the jerky. The flavor is good, but it doesn’t stand out as spectacular. We score Laura’s Lean Original beef jerky a B on the flavor factor.

TEXTURE FACTOR: B

The jerky looked as advertised and was lean and sliced thin. Although thin, the pieces were dense and fairly dry. It was neither too chewy, nor too tough. I enjoyed the lean, non-gristly texture of the jerky, but since the jerky was a bit dry we score Laura’s Lean Original beef jerky a B on the texture factor.

HEALTH FACTOR: A

Awarded 2016 Prevention Magazine Cleanest Food Award, Laura’s Lean Original beef jerky is made with grass fed beef and is certified USDA Organic. It contains no added preservatives, MSG, or nitrates. It is gluten free. We score Laura’s Lean Original beef jerky an A on the health factor
