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.
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.
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!
