bonafide bone broth packages

 

Bonafide bone broths can be used simply as a drink to sip, as base for smoothies and sauces, or as a traditional broth for soups. The broth is delivered frozen in a cooler and needs to be moved to freezer storage immediately upon receipt of delivery. Bonafide broths are slow cooked in small batches for 24-48 hours depending on the type of broth, and then are frozen to preserve all the nutritious benefits.

 

After delivery there are two preferred methods for thawing the broth:

 

  • From frozen: Simply thaw in refrigerator for 24 hours and then heat over medium heat until you reach a simmer. Placing the bag out on the counter to thaw is not recommended.
  • Faster method: Place your frozen broth in sealed in plastic bag, in a bowl warm water for 10 to 15 minutes. Next heat over medium heat until you reach a simmer.

 

The broth is packaged in 24 ounce BPA free bags. The broths contain 12-14 grams of protein per 8oz (one cup) serving depending on type of broth (beef or chicken). The broths contain no artificial flavors, colors, MSG, flavor additives, and no sugar.

We prepared bone broth as a hot drink, in a pasta recipe, in brown rice, and in a traditional hot soup recipe with vegetables and meat. We found our favorite preparation was in the soup recipe. The broths provide an excellent, flavorful, rich, and nutritious base for many meal preparations. The texture of the broth is a bit thicker than other store bought beef or chicken broths. There is a noticeable density and richness to the broth which leads to its satiating factors.
