Face De Beu Foods would like to restore the nobility of jerky, often seen as fast food filled with salt and preservatives. Even though their jerky is safe to eat after 12 months, their goal is regularly to renew production to offer fresh jerky. We will inevitably have to reduce our meat consumption and choose our products better soon. Their philosophy is to eat less, eat better. Jerky « Face de Beu » meets this definition.
Jerky is Face De Beu Foods’ flagship product, but they also offer ready-to-smoke meat products for BBQ lovers. Smoked meat, pork belly, and turkey breast are part of their offerings, and spices are used in their jerky. They present a podcast every week related to BBQ. « Trip bouffe BBQ » on Facebook, Twitch, and YouTube. A weekly show for BBQ lovers but also microbrewery and distillery enthusiasts.
The orange coloured spice displayed is a traditional BBQ spice ideal for chicken. The green coloured spice is perfect for salad, fish, vegetable sauce, and especially fries and mashed potatoes. The steak spice is for grilling. This Face De Beu Jerky brand name is located in Quebec City, Auebec, Canada, and is distributed by Les Ailments Face De Beu Jerky.
The next review for Face De Beu Jerky will focus on a 2.1 ounce/60 gram bag of their Bacon flavored beef jerky. This flavour is described as using its own BBQ spice blend. President/Owner/Managing Director Antoine Trudel kindly submitted the jerky for review.
Ingrédients: Beef Black Angus AAA Canadien, Sauce Soya Naturelle Sans Gluten, Sirop D’erable, Saveur De Fumee Naturelle, Levure Alimentaire, Arome Naturel, Sel De Mer, Poivre Noir. Allergen Warnings: Soya
Ingredients: Black Angus AAA Canadian Beef, Gluten-Free Natural Soy Sauce, Maple Syrup, Natural Smoke Flavour, Baking Powder, Natural Flavour, Sea Salt, Black Pepper. Allergen Warnings: Soy
This Canadian raised Black Angus beef used is not guaranteed to be free of growth hormones or additional antibiotics. Also, the beef is not guaranteed to have at least partial free range access to graze on grass. As a result, the highest ingredient rating that can be awarded is a Good (8/10) rating.
The liquid marinade used here is comprised of locally made Quebec maple syrup and a good brand of gluten-free soy sauce.
The only healthy ingredient added is black pepper.
The sugar is acceptable at 3 grams of sugar per 30 grams of jerky. The salt level is high at 540mg of salt per 30 grams of jerky. However, the salt level is ignored because healthy, minimally processed sea salt is used. This jerky does qualify to have no sodium nitrite or similar unhealthy preservatives. Commendably, there is no MSG added.
Good (8/10) – Ingredient Rating
FACE DE BEU JERKY – BACON BEEF JERKY
Written by guest jerky reviewer Paul Rekker
When I open the bag I smell soy. The pieces are smallish, and they are sliced to a medium thickness. The jerky is dry and chewy, not too much, just enough to remind us of the way our forefathers intended beef jerky to look, feel and taste.
The first flavours I encounter are salt at a good level, pepper, also at a good level, next to no sweet, which is also a good thing. I detect a bit of that “buttery” flavour that we’ve come across a few times in other flavours of jerky.
I am personally truly enjoying this tasty jerky snack, it is growing on me. Face De Beau, take a bow. You have created another very favourable flavor of jerky. I can’t really say I am tasting bacon though, so for that reason, I am going to rate it as a 9/10. Gentlemen?

Les Aliments Face de Beu – Jerky Bacon, what can I say? …What is there not to like! This is an amazing treat; I got addicted on my very first bite. This little beauty boasts tons of flavors, it is rich, buttery, and it’s further complimented with a bold smokiness. The aroma and texture are just as beautiful and keep adding to the overall experience, as Aroma and Texture are conductors of Flavor.
Les Aliments Face de Beu – Jerky Bacon is simple, no fuss, no muss, and it is exquisite all around. This gem does deliver in trove and then some. This is, without a doubt, an amazing jerky and time to go back to school for anyone who does not agree.
It’s an easy 10/10 Taste Rating for me. This jerky is more in-line with beef bacon and it is available in most Supermarkets. Cheers to a wonderful representation of a Bacon Jerky Flavor.
Here is what Mark had to say about this Bacon beef jerky flavor from Face De Beu Jerky: “Thanks Stéphane and Paul for the colorful taste reviews. Hard to disagree with either of you. As for the bacon flavour, it does involve some imagination, but sort of resembles the taste of bacon. Stéphane makes an astute point in tasting like beef bacon. The ‘buttery’ taste of beef is questionable, maybe a bit, but this is a solid natural beef flavour from the black Angus beef.”
“Overall, the taste profile fits in neatly here, being well-balanced. I found this beef bacon jerky to be highly addictive. As with Paul, I have to deduct a rating for not tasting bacony enough. With Paul and I at 9 ratings and Stephane at a 10, a Very Good (9/10) taste rating will be awarded.”
This 2.1 ounce/60 gram bag of jerky sells for $8.99. That works out to $4.28 an ounce, which rates as an expensive price.
Very Good (9/10) – Taste Rating
This white colored non-resealable bag has everything imprinted directly on the bag, both on the front and back. The bag is vacuum sealed, the best way to keep jerky fresh tasting.
A slogan printed on this bag is “Mangez Moinns Mais Mangez Mieux” (Eat Less But Eat Better). Some facts printed on this bag are “100% Natural Canadian Beef”, “180 Calories”, “32g Protein”, “1g of Low Fat”, “3g of Sugar”, and “540mg of Salt”.
Some missing bag categories are distributor address details, a Canadian Department of Agriculture (CDA) inspected stamp, no English translations, and a blurb about the jerky flavour or brand.
