Raging Bull Biltong have been selected by the British Army Force Atlantic and Expedition Antarctic Quest 21 teams to provide the biltong for 2 amazing challenges later this year. British Force Atlantic, comprising 2 male and 2 female soldiers will attempt to row, unsupported, 3000 miles across the Atlantic. Rowing 24 hours a day for approximately 6 weeks they aim to raise money for the British Royal Legion. It is worth noting that more people have climbed Everest than have successfully rowed the Atlantic. Expedition Antarctic Quest 21, a mixed team of serving and ex-military personnel are setting out to follow in Sir Ernest Shackleton’s footsteps in the centenary year of his final expedition to the Antarctic. They aim is to carry out scientific experiments essential to our understanding of how to repair our broken planet.
Both challenges have required intense training and meticulous nutritional planning. The teams approached Raging Bull because their biltong is very high in natural protein and low in carbs and sugar. Protein is essential for muscle repair and this healthy ready to eat snack is the perfect partner for these extraordinary challenges.
“Biltong is a delicious snack which is low carb, low sugar and high in protein which is essential to reduce weakness and fatigue. Over time a lack of protein can make you lose muscle mass, which in turn cuts your strength, makes it harder to keep your balance, and slows your metabolism. Something we definitely do not need on our journey,” said Captain Scott Pollock – team leader, Army Force Atlantic.
“Raging Bull biltong is rich in protein which encourages muscle repair and helps to prevent muscle breakdown with regular feedings throughout the day. The biltong will be part of the snack bags that the team will graze on during each day of the expedition,” said Emily Whitehead – team nutritionist, Expedition Antarctic Quest 21.
