Remember all the times Grandma would make you her special soup and tell you that it would help heal your headache or take away your cold? Grandma sure was on to something! But what Grandma may not have realized is that by adding bone broth to your cooking, you are adding an extra amount of glow. Bone broth is an excellent source of protein and contains important vitamins and minerals like calcium, potassium and phosphorus. It also offers whole body and beauty benefits like healing gut health and digestion, and helps to support a healthy immune system while promoting muscles, bone and joint health.
By adding bone broth to your cooking, you are supplying your body with all the incredible benefits it has to offer. While most recipes call for broth stock over bone broth, it is important to note the difference between the two and why broth bone is particularly better for whole body beauty benefits. Broth stock is essentially made the same way as bone broth, by simmering bones, vegetables and herbs togethers. What makes our broth concentrates different (and healthier) than broth stock, is that during the cooking process, we leave all of our ingredients intact and slowly-simmer together for up to 24 hours. This results in a concentrate form, rich in naturally-occurring collagen, vitamins and nutrients. Most other brands on the market grind up their ingredients, which reduces the integrity and all the powerful benefits. This process also results in a more water-based stock, whereas our bone broth is boiled down into a concentrated, potent form.
Although many recipes call for broth stock, we highly recommend cooking with broth concentrates instead. By adding broth concentrates to your meals, it will help provide body to the base (aka thicken the liquid present), enhance all the rich flavors AND add incredible health benefits to your meals. It's time to start swapping broth stock for bone broth!
