Bone broth nutrition facts are as varied as the recipes and brands you find online; it’s all about ingredients, cook time and temperature (or ‘processing’, for short).
Of course, there are many brands of bone broth with nutrition facts on the packaging that you can reference to give you some idea. Let’s start by comparing the two flavors of Au Bon Broth Premium fresh frozen bone broth as an example:
You can see the main difference that including vegetables in a recipe like Au Bon Broth Premium Bone Broth (right) makes on the bone broth nutrition facts compared to Au Bon Broth Pure Bone Broth (below); the cook time will draw out some of the carbohydrates and sugars in the vegetables (tomatoes and carrots, for example, will add a bit of carbs to your broth), as well as some trace vitamins and minerals.
Protein is the main source of nutrients and where the magic of bone broth comes from. You need all of those amino acids to feed the body and soul! The more protein, the more collagen and amino acids to help rebuild your body.
We of course recommend consuming bone broth hot, but this would be a way for you to actually test out and see the protein in the bone broth in action. The gelling property of the bone broth is important; that’s direct evidence that the protein in the bone broth is still active and able to bind in some way.
Many store bought bone broths will not gel up like this if you heat it and refrigerate it. This could mean that the amino acids have been compromised from harsh processing or that it is otherwise a watered down bone broth that might not supply the nutrition that you’re seeking if you want to experience a change in your health.
For reference, here is also a bone broth nutrition facts panel for Pacific Foods bone broth, also packaged in tetra packs. You can see the protein content is somewhere between Kettle and Fire and Au Bon Broth, but then you must also wonder, what is the sourcing of the ingredients? This is just as important as the quantity of protein is the quality.
So, you have seen a few examples of bone broth nutrition facts, but how do those nutrients affect your body? What makes the nutrition from bone broth so beneficial? You will find answers to those questions and then some, below.
Bone Broth Nutrition Facts:
1: Isn’t Bone Broth Just a Fancy Word for Soup?
• Yes and No. They are very similar, and confusion is increased as the implied meaning of each word has changed over the years.
• The fundamental difference is in the thickness of the final product which comes from the length of time ingredients are left to seep in the broth.
• Stock makes use of more actual meat whereas bone broth uses meat-stripped bones left to slow roast for an extended period of time.
• Both broth and stock are made in part by letting joints, bones and tendons roast in the broth, but where stock is left to stew for a few hours, bone broth is often slow simmered for 18-24 hours or even longer. Bone broth nutrition facts will be a little different than your average stock due to this (bone broth has more of the right kind of amino acids due to a longer cook time extracting them from the bones)
• The result is that over the extended simmer time more collagen seeps out of the bones and into the broth creating a thicker and more gelatinous final product.
2. What does bone broth actually do for your health? What do bone broth nutrition facts mean for you?
• Promote Healthy Hair, Skin, and Nails – Collagen is abundant in the knuckles, joints and ligaments used to make bone broth. Collagen is an amino acid that is found naturally in our bodies and is one of the fundamental building blocks for connective tissue. While most skin creams used for anti-aging promote rubbing collagen based products on your face, it is in fact an amino acid/protein that is most effectively created in the body through the use of absorbed nutrition.
• Relieve Chronic Digestion Issues – Bone broth is a leading prescription for illnesses that arise from Leaky Gut Syndrome such as diarrhea, IBS, or chronic nausea. Bone broth’s gelatinous form serves as the perfect sealant for tiny tears in your GI tract that are often the root problem of your chronic digestive issues.
• Protect Your Joints – Glucosamine and Chondroitin, both well documented medicinal aids for joint health are both present in bone broth. Chondroitin sulfate has been shown to reduce pain and inflammation as effectively as prescription medications meant to treat osteoarthritis and also has preventative properties. Bone broth is also rich in hyaluronic acid, also known to reduce swelling and improve function and range of movement in joints. Bone broth is not only one of the most effective forms of delivery for beneficial compounds like these (as opposed to nutritional supplements), but it comes with all the additional nutritional benefits of consuming homemade organic soup.
• Sleep Better, Be Sharper – Another amino acid prevalent in bone broth is known as Glycine. Glycine has been shown in studies to improve sleep and ward off fatigue, as well as improve focus and mental stamina.
• Lose Weight – Not only is bone broth nutrient dense, but it is also remarkably low calorie. Used as a nutritional supplement, bone broth can be a great addition to any health and fitness routine. It is dense in protein and depending on the recipe, may also carry nutrition value from vegetable content. Bone broth is also a staple in many GAPS and Paleo friendly diets
All this talk about bone broth and why it’s good for you, but what is it?
“Broth” is one of those terms whose meaning has undergone something of a metamorphosis over the past decade. Like “organic” or “Paleolithic,” the literal meaning hasn’t changed so much as the contextual inference that it now carries. Ask your average person 10 years ago what they thought of when they heard the word “broth,” you’d probably hear about some iteration of mom’s chicken soup or the stock used to make it.
Today the term comes with a range of questions. Is it broth or is it stock? Is it from chicken, beef, or fish? Is it organic? Does it have preservatives? Is it canned? Where were the bones sourced from? How were the animals cared for? What does that mean for me and my family’s health and nutritional needs? These are important details that a bone broth nutrition facts label likely won’t be able to answer for you.
It’s enough to make you think you need a degree in nutrition before your next visit to the grocery store. Don’t stress, we’ve got you covered. What follows is the quick and dirty guide to everything you probably never knew you wanted to know about bone broth.
3. Can I make it at Home?
Of course! Depending on how you make it, you’ll need about 30 minutes to two hours of prep time, and then you just set it on low roast in your crockpot or stock pot and let it sit for anywhere from 12-48 hours depending on how much time you have vs. how gelatinous you want the broth to be. Generally speaking, the longer you let things marinate, the thicker it is likely to be. If you do cook it for a very long time, you may want to keep an eye on it and add water as the day continues. A significant amount of liquid will steam off, and if left too long, some of the bones may not be submerged and you’re not getting all of the goodness extracted from those bones if they are sticking out of the water.
In order to make it at home you’ll need the following -
• 4 lbs. of bones (beef, chicken, turkey, fish, or lamb) preferably bones with a bit of meat and cartilage still on them (knuckles, joints, short-ribs, or ox-tail bones as an example). Despite what you will hear from many sources, it is also wise to avoid too many marrow bones in one batch as this will create a soup that is overly fatty with a less than optimal taste.
• 1 whole leek, cut into 2-inch pieces,
• 2 unpeeled carrots, cut into 2-inch pieces,
• 1 garlic head, cut crosswise in half,
• 1 medium onion, quartered
• 2 celery talks, cut into 2 inch pieces,
• 2 bay leaves,
• 2 tablespoons of black peppercorns, and
• 1 tablespoon of cider vinegar
• Half a teaspoon of sea salt
• Handful of parsley
• 6 quart (or larger) crockpot/stockpot/slow cooker
i. *Optional – roast your bones on a cookie sheet in the oven at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes (until browned).
ii. Place bones roasted or not in your crockpot and fill with (preferably filtered) water
iii. Add apple cider vinegar (1/2 a cup for beef stock, 2 tablespoons for chicken stock) wait 30 minutes. This will begin to leech minerals and nutrients out of the bones and ligaments and into the water. You might also break bones in half in certain places to allow cartilage to seep more easily.
iv. While this brew is a’mixin, cut up your veggies and toss them in. Doesn’t need to be too fine a cut, just a good ‘once over’ should do the trick.
v. Add rosemary, thyme, sea salt, or any other combination of flavorings as you see fit.
vi. Put the pot on high heat and bring to a boil. Skim any white froth that comes to the top during the initial boil. These are by-products that have been boiled out of the bones.
vii. Once brought to a boil, turn down to a low simmer (or until there’s just a little movement in the liquid). Cook covered for 18-48 hours.
4. Does it Matter Which Bones are Used?
• Yes. Different parts of different animals carry different nutritional benefits for the broth and will also add to the taste – for better or worse – based on what’s being dissolved into the broth. It might be joints chalk full of collagen and high in protein, or it might be a marrow bone which is nothing but animal fat.
• The best parts to use of an animal are the parts with just enough meat and cartilage to dissolve into the broth during the slow roasting period. Knuckles, chicken neck joints, shoulder joints, chicken feet, and ox tail are some common examples of the most desirable parts to use in bone broth.
• Marrow bones can be used as filler but won’t taste as good and marrow is mostly fat.
• As with any animal product, the best quality bones come from animals that are properly and humanely cared for, allowed to graze on a free range or in an open pasture, bred without the use of artificial hormones, and fed non-gmo grain.

We offer nationwide delivery via UPS/Fed-Ex and other carriers. Bone broth is shipped out only on Mondays. Orders placed after Monday will ship out the following Monday. The broth is shipped frozen inside an insulated liner with dry ice and gel packs and needs to be refrigerated or frozen as soon as it's delivered. Unfortunately, we cannot be responsible for products that spoil after delivery. Since our broth is shipped frozen solid with dry ice, it should remain in the temperature safe zone (Under 35°F) until it is delivered. Your broth may arrive partially thawed and slushy- but this is okay- just be sure to refrigerate/freeze it immediately to prevent further thawing.
Our bone broth is slowly simmered in stainless steel stockpots to extract as many nutrients and gelatin as possible. It is then strained to remove excess fat and then rapid-cooled prior to being packaged and frozen for shipment.
Once your order is processed, you will receive a confirmation email and carrier tracking number once the carrier picks up the shipment from our kitchen.
We rapid cool the bone broth then cold-fill BPA-Free 32oz standup plastic pouches for maximum freshness and to eliminate spills, leaks, or cracks possible in other, more brittle plastic containers or glass.
You can place the pouch under some warm running water before reheating in a pot on your stove or you can let it thaw out in the refrigerator overnight. We highly advise against using microwave, as this method can potentially alter and/or ruin the nutrients you spent good money on.
It tastes so good most people drink it straight up but you can add your own ingredients to it, make a delicious soup with it, make risottos and rice dishes with or even make pancakes with it!
Your broth will last 7 days in the refrigerator after opening or you can freeze for up to 1 year and un-thaw as needed.
We challenge you to consume at least 8 ounces of bone broth a day for 30 days and see how you feel after!
