I just know this - I have a Kilojoule/Calorie book and according to the source, it shows that 100g grilled beef contains 521KJ and 124 Calories, where the same amount of beef biltong is 853KJ and 203 Calories. Don't ask me why but it is fattening and unhealthy if you eat too much of it. The salt content of biltong is also higher than normal grilled/cooked beef. So I don't think it is that healthy but hell, who cares - life is so miserable and if they take my biltong away, I'll kill them! We make our own biltong.
