Bone Broth

Heard of it but don’t know much about it?  Here are some questions I get asked.  I prefer Meadow & Marrow Bone Broth, so have based my answers on this brand & gathered some info from their website.

From the Meadow & Marrow Bone Broth Site, a great summary.

What is it & how is it made?

Meadow & Marrow Bone Broth is a pure bone broth made by using their own special process.  The jar you purchase is actually a concentrate, so it will be very thick (like use a spoon to get it out thick) but the good news – it is all broth.  It is not a dehydrated product & it is their special process which gives it maximum nutrient density.  It is not topped up with water or vegetables or thickeners, but there are plenty of herbs & spices which differ depending on the flavour chosen.  The bones used are from the Darling Downs in Queensland, & are from 100% Australian grass fed & finished cattle which are also hormone & antibiotic free.

How long does it last & how do I store it?

You will purchase it off the shelf & it will be shelf stable until it is opened.  Once open, store it in the fridge.  It is worth noting the cold of the fridge will solidify it a bit, so a spoon will definitely be useful to scoop it out.  The jars do have use by dates, although honestly mine are usually used up well before then.  The Meadow & Marrow website, advises with correct storage the jar should be usable until the expiry date.

What is it good for?

Bone broth is a great inclusion for general wellness, but also great for healing, repairing & detox. THINK if you have been sick, travelling or even just a period of overindulgence.  I like to include a cup in the morning to start the day, it is very gentle on an empty stomach.

How much?

In the mornings I use a teaspoon of concentrate & add to a cup of hot water – easy peasey, it is just like making a coffee!  I also regularly use in in family cooking.  Some fav ideas – stir though mashed vege; great in soups or stews; fabulous in marinade with extra virgin olive oil on chicken tenders; great in sauces (pimp your gravy up – delish!)  You can’t have too much, so add it to whatever you fancy.

It is great for your digestion, gut health, liver & immune.  Yup, Nana was absolutely right with this one – it is chockful of the good stuff!

I am incredibly passionate about food and its healing power – it is pretty amazing how what you eat affects how your body works! In fact, I was so fascinated, I went & got myself a degree in it – a Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine). Now in all honesty I don’t eat or live a perfect lifestyle, nor will I ever pretend I do. Realistically I know you won’t be perfect either. And that’s OK. As a Clinical Nutritionist I focus on what we eat and how this has an impact on our health and wellness – everyday.
