Our story… why we source and supply Broth
Cyndi was brought up on a traditional home cooked diet which always included broths. Whilst learning anthropology, Cyndi discovered that it is believed that we have been making broth or stew for a few million years. Cyndi has continued to include broths in her diet and our certified organic, dehydrated, Australian made broths make it easier for her to do this while she travels the world for her work.
It is believed that broth and stews have been a part of the diet for millions of years. Explorers said that Native Americans would drink copious amounts and it was believed they preferred it to water. In more recent times we have Jewish penicillin (chicken soup) which is said to help remedy a cold. Every continent uses broth in their diet in some form, from Eastern European Borsch, to Asian soups, to the French using it as a base for most sauces. Broth is very versatile and adds a rich flavour to soup and meals. In addition, broth contains various minerals, amino acids, collagen and gelatin which are all an important part of a balanced diet.
Our broth is made from organic grass fed beef or organic free range chickens and organic vegetables. The bones are simmered for a minimum of 24 hours for chicken and 48 hours for the beef to allow the minerals to be extracted from the bones. No additives, preservatives or colours are added. The broth is then slow-dried to granules to make it easy to transport. So wherever you are, you can enjoy the benefits of broth.
Broth may help to improve the look of your skin and hair due to the collagen contained. The glucosamine is good for our bones, glycine is believed to help the liver detox and is also good for better sleep and improved memory. The gelatin found in broth from the joints of the bones can help seal the gut lining. It is easy to see why it is good to add to the diet when we look at what minerals and amino acids are found in broth.
The American LA Lakers professional basketball team include broth as part of the recommended diet for their athletes. The electrolytes in addition to all the nutrients can be beneficial after intense exercise. It helps hydrate the body with the liquid and contains sodium which is lost during sweating. The amino acids contained in broth are also needed for tissue repair.
Our Broth story
Cyndi was brought up on a traditional home cooked diet which always included broths. Whilst learning anthropology, Cyndi discovered that it is believed that we have been making broth or stew for a few million years. As she continued studying, it became clear why broths can be a healthy part of the diet as they contain collagen, gelatin, nutrients and various minerals including calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus and zinc. Cyndi still includes home-made broths in her diet but as she regularly travels nationally and internationally, she wanted a convenient, portable form of broth that she could easily use to make a hot drink or include in her meals while in transit. Our dehydrated broths are provided in pouches and sourced from a small independent Australian company that only uses organic products and specialises in just broths.
