comment How to cure beef jerky with a minimum of salt?
Are you really going to claim that you have squeezed every water molecule out of the jerky? And that water will not be reabsorbed from the humidity in the air? Is your food sealer that amazing, really? Give it a rest already.

comment How to cure beef jerky with a minimum of salt?
I will not, because you are ignoring the requirement of shelf stability for beef jerky. That is achieved through curing agents. Heat kills pathogens, but growth resumes when temperatures fall unless the environment contains agents that inhibit it. Your answer is based not on research, but on poor understanding of research.

I read your answer. Your reading comprehension skills need a tuneup, sir.

Neither of those links indicates that jerky is preserved without salt, merely the drying practices to achieve an initial kill of pathogens. Without curing agents, even dried foods will be susceptible to pathogen growth once the food has dropped back into the danger zone.

I don't know. Rice Krispie treats never last long enough around me for storage to become an issue.
