How long will the broth last me?
It comes frozen and will last for 6 months in the freezer. Once thawed it will last for 5 days in the refrigerator.
How do I use the product?
For intense healing you should drink 1-2 C per day, with or in between meals. For maintenance of a healthy and well healed gut drink ½ C per day. The broth can be used as a healthy and healing substitute in anything savory that calls for liquid or water. Works fantastic as a base too makes soups too!
Would I use it after surgery or injury?
Yes it is the perfect healing food. Listen to your body and start with just the broth. As your appetite picks up start to add more food into the broth. Examples eggs, chicken, steamed vegetables, cooked quinoa with warmed broth poured over.
Is there a difference between the chicken or bison broth?
Very slight nutritional differences and different flavor profiles but both are great for all types of healing. I typically recommend that people rotate their foods so I would recommend that as well with broth.
Is there a difference between the boxed broths I find in the store and what you make?
Yes a big difference! Boxed broths typically are not gelatinous when cool and are lower in nutritional density. In most cases these broths are cooked at extreme temperatures and are loaded with seasonings, artificial flavors and sodium vs. nutrition. Do not rely on store bought broth for healing purposes.
Why do you add vinegar to the broth?
Adding an acid (like lemon juice or vinegar) will help to extract minerals from the bones.
Do you remove the fat on your bone broth?
Yes, I remove the fat from the broth. If making the broth yourself it is not necessary.
Why is it so important to have a gelatinous broth?
The sign of the ‘jelly’ is what let’s you know you’ve soaked the bones long enough and haven’t used too much water. The goal is a nutritionally dense broth that is only achieved by using bones that have high gelatin content and then cooking them properly to preserve the nutritional and healing value. Gelatinous bone broth is the sign (when it’s wobbly once cooled in fridge) that you’ve got a great amount of gelatin and high nutrition density.
What are other conditions the broth would benefit?
If you have any issues around bone / joint health, preparing for childbirth, recovering from surgery – especially joint / bone surgery, leaky gut, IBS, autoimmune diseases such as Crohn’s, issues with hair / teeth / nails / skin
Does vegetable stock have the same benefit?
No, vegetable stock does not have the gelatin, amino acid profile, or the high mineral count.
