*We don’t salt our broth, so that you can season it to suit your taste.
Bone broths are not all created equal, and ours is hard to beat.
We pack it with flavorful, locally sourced organic foods, and you’ll taste the difference.
The result is an Old World superfood that delivers delicious, deeply satisfying nutrition.
Our broth is super-rich in protein, collagen, and key amino acids, providing two to three times as much protein as some other organic brands.
And it’s custom-made for us by a local chef — who uses unique methods that maximize flavor and nutrition — right here in our Bellingham, Washington home base.
Last but not least, Vital Choice broth is cooked with organic kombu kelp (seaweed) to enrich its flavor. Kombu contributes a bit of naturally ocurring salt; add more as desired to suit your taste.
Bone broth like no other
What’s the secret behind our exceptionally flavorful, nutritious broth?
First, we use a whopping five pounds of beef bones for every gallon of broth — much more than most brands.
We use about 5 lb of bones and 1 lb of trotters or “feet” — including knuckles and joints — to make each gallon of broth. The skin, tendons, and cartilage in these beef parts produce high levels of collagen, glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, and hyaluronic acid.
And instead of simmering the broth for 48 hours — which tends to flatten flavors — our beef broth is simmered for just seven hours, in a special high-pressure pot. Importantly, the vegetables and herbs are not simmered as long as the bones and feet, to preserve their fresh, full flavors.
Finally, we pack our broth with loads of certified-organic vegetables, herbs, spices, and organic kombu kelp (seaweed).
Japanese cooks use kombu to make the famous “dashi” stock that serves as the tasty heart of their sauces and soups. Organic kombu adds salt, irresistible “umami” flavor, and extra minerals to our broth.
Our Organic Grass-Fed Beef Broth provides just 220mg of sodium per 8-oz. serving — that’s 60% less than the best-selling organic brand, and about 1/3 less than some “small-batch” organic brands.
Bone broth health benefits
Our bone broth is packed with collagen and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs): two key components of joint and connective tissues.
Collagen is also rich in easy-to-digest amino acids like proline and glycine, which serve as critical building blocks for joint and connective tissues. Glycine is also a precursor for glutathione, the most abundant antioxidant produced by our bodies.
