FAQs

Safe for pregnancy, trying to conceive, breastfeeding, for babies or toddlers?

Yup it’s all natural. So it’s not only safe, but it’s highly recommended. In saying this, we always suggest consulting with your healthcare professional first. 

It’s a great way to get protein, amino acids into your body while pregnant, and then to get into your babies and toddlers.

Mix some Bone Broth Powder in with your baby’s next soft meal as it’s great for adding protein when you first start them on solids.

*The rosemary in the extract is less than 1% rosemary which is fine for pregnant women.

 

Is it good for IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)?

Bone Broth contains amino acids which support the gut. This then soothes the gut lining which promotes healing.

It is recommended for people with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis and SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth). In saying this, we always suggest consulting with your healthcare professional first. 

Approximately 1 in 7 New Zealanders are affected by Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). To read more please visit here.

 

What does the Bone Broth Powder taste like? Does it smell like meat?

It has a very mild flavour that can be enhanced by seasoning with salt, pepper or ginger. The powder doesn’t smell like meat at all. Once added with water, there is still a very mild smell and taste. 

If you’ve worked heavily with meat before as a butcher or in an abattoir, we’ve had feedback that it can trigger a more potent meat memory smell.

 

How natural is it actually?

All our ingredients are natural. That goes for Monk fruit, vanilla extract, rosemary and all the Bone Broth ingredients. There are no artificial flavours, or preservatives.

Our entire range is made from non GMO ingredients.

The bones we source are free from antibiotics and hormones. They are in the very safe range for heavy metals - basically everything grown in soil contains metals.

 

What’s in the Bone Broth Extract? Is it suitable for a low Fodmap or autoimmune paleo diet?

Extract of grass fed beef bones, onions, carrots, celery, parsley, organic apple cider vinegar, black peppercorns, bay leaf, rosemary extract. All the nutrients out of these ingredients are suspended in the liquid after the cooking process. The bones and other materials are removed before being put through a gentle drying process.

It’s dairy free, gluten free, legume free, low sugar, and high in protein and collagen.

The onion flesh is removed before drying, so not inflammatory for IBS, and is only a trace amount in the powder. The other ingredients are also at a trace amount by the time the powder is formed.

 

Difference between Marine and Bovine Collagen?

The main difference is the source of the collagen

Bovine = cow (Type 1 & 3 Collagen)

Type 1 which has hair, skin and nail health benefits.
