Homemade Bone Broth versus Store Bought – Which is Better and More Affordable?
Hi Sweet Friends,
Clearly, homemade bone broth is always going to be the best option. However, does the cost of making homemade broth outweigh the benefits? This is a question I receive over and over again. So in my “Bone Broth: Homemade or Store Bought?” video, I discuss exactly how much homemade bone broth costs to make, both with commercially raised bones as well as organic grass fed bones.
Here’s a list of the ingredients in the store-bought bone broth that’s in my video:
- Beef broth
- Beef extract
- Apple cider
- Sea salt
- Onion powder
- Tomato powder
- Yeast extract
- Cooked vegetables
- Garlic powder
- Corn oil
- Potato flour
- Black pepper
- Carrot powder
Do we know which bones were used to make the broth, or what olreoresin is? (Ah. Olreoresin is a natural or artificial mix of essential oils and resin. But why is it needed in bone broth?) And corn oil? Really? In bone broth? I hope they’re kidding!
When we make our bone broth at home, we know what’s in it, and I’m confident none of us are adding resin! But what does it cost to make bone broth homemade? Does it cost more than store-bought–cup for cup? Come join me in my kitchen with my “Bone Broth: Homemade or Store Bought?” video as we answer these questions and more!
