Coming soon to your grocer’s fridge: bottled bone broth


epic_bone_brothIf you have ever waited in line in the cold for a good bone broth—or spent hours making your own— you’re in for a treat. There’s another way to experience the purported health effects of bone broth at home, without making it yourself or using a Keurig.

Epic Provisions, the company known for its Paleo-friendly, animal-based protein bars, is introducing a line of bone broths this spring that can live in your grocer’s refrigerator section (yes, you read that right).

And the ready-to-heat broths won’t be frozen, so you can drink them straight from the bottle. Each 8-ounce serving contains 10 grams of naturally occurring protein (there are two servings per bottle), with three flavors available: turkey cranberry sage, homestyle savory chicken, and beef jalapeno sea salt. (Hot chocolate flavor you’ll still have to wait in line for.) And forget the ultra-high-heat pasteurization method of brewing.

“The broth is cooked in a traditional fashion using low heat and long duration kettle cooking,” Epic Provisions co-founder Taylor Collins told us. “They’re never heated above a gentle, rolling boil, and are never exposed to pressure, ensuring the end product has all the health benefits from homemade bone broth.”

The new products—in addition to the ready-to-heat broths, Epic also just released a new line of animal cooking oils (beef tallow, duck fat, and pork lard)— are all part of the brand’s “Whole Animal Project.” “The concept is to take a nose-to-tail approach to honoring the entire animal and reducing our waste by creating nourishing products from different cuts,” says Collins. And yes, that includes using the scraps, a clean eating approach we’re seeing everywhere.

“By utilizing the entire animal, we are creating nutrient-rich food and helping reward ranchers who raise animals in a fashion that creates healthier foods and healthier lands,” he says. And as with Epic’s other products, they’re all coming from grass-fed, pasture-raised, cage-free animals.

So you can feel extra good about your anytime-anywhere sipping. (And it may be time to finally dig up that Thermos you use on camping trips.) —Alison Feller
