What It Is
Any time you boil bones and vegetables in water long enough to release the nutrients and flavors into the water, it becomes broth. When animal bones and vegetables are both used, it’s often referred to as bone broth (sometimes referring to the animal bones used, such as chicken broth or beef broth, etc.).
Bone broth is chock full of nutrients we can’t get anywhere else. Probably the most important of these nutrients is gelatin. It’s an essential building block for our own bones and teeth and too many Americans don’t get sufficient gelatin in their diet. It also comes loaded with other nutrients necessary for maintaining the health of our teeth and bones, including calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D.
The Only Shelf Stable, Paleo Bone Broth
There are many different brands of bone broth available at the grocery store on shelves and in the refrigerated section. Not all of them source their ingredients from organic and grass-fed animals and there’s only one company that I know of that’s making a properly sourced, environmentally friendly, shelf stable bone broth and that’s Kettle & Fire.
