Is bone broth healthy? 

As a dietitian, I love bone broth as a health benefit for myself and my patients. Most commonly, I drink a local Texas favorite; FOND! If you follow me on Instagram, you know I heavily rely on FOND. It is a protein-rich, nourishing option that requires little effort and is made with top tier ingredients like pasture-raised chickens and grass-fed beef. Each serving packs in a protein punch (20 grams per jar!) while being gluten AND sugar free making it a Whitness Nutrition favorite.

FOND uses a slow-simmer process that spans over 18 hours. This process allows for every bit of goodness to be extracted from the bones and provides optimal flavors and nutrition. To enhance its flavor and nutritional value, FOND is also infused with fresh organic herbs such as rosemary and garlic. It is also full of naturally-occurring electrolytes, and rich in vital amino acids. FOND is great for cooking, but it is also wonderful to sip on, warmed up in your favorite mug.
