The collagen that is extracted when the joints and bones from healthy animals are slowly simmered for days contain the building blocks of life.

About Bare Bones Broth


2003: My dad passed away at 39 years old of a heart attack. No warning signs. My grandfather wasn’t much older when he passed. Aside from genetics and the uncanny ability to light up a room with their presence, they both had something else in common – poor diets, zero exercise, and smoked like chimneys.

Determined to turn off bad genes and turn on good ones, I turned to nutrition and exercise and committed myself to a life of health and wellness in hopes that I wouldn’t succumb to the same fate. I realized that while I cannot control my genetics, I can control how I fuel and treat my body. Something I am convinced can change genes and add quality and longevity to life.

2005: When I joined the military at age 19, I became obsessed with exercise, eventually discovering CrossFit and subsequently the paleo lifestyle. A big part of paleo is eating foods that are local and in-season, just as you would if you still had to hunt, raise, grow and harvest your own food. Humans evolved eating this way – specifically learning to hunt animals that roamed freely on open lands. This way of eating and viewing food just made sense to me. Humans wouldn’t be as intelligent and evolved as we are if it weren’t for millions of years of consuming healthy animal proteins and fats.

I became fascinated with food, and enrolled in culinary school post-military, going on to earn an internship at Nine Ten Restaurant & Bar in La Jolla, California. I quickly realized the chef life is not for me. I loved working with local farms and ranches, always using the best seasonal ingredients and pastured meats. But the crazy hours, egos, and poor diet left me undernourished, stressed out, and deflated.
2012: The greatest thing happened during my time in the restaurant. It dawned on me that chefs, the very people who created and live the farm-to-table movement that I love, are some of the unhealthiest people on the planet. To them, it’s not about health or food as fuel, it’s about flavor. It’s about taking ingredients when they are at their prime and telling their story on a plate. They eat, sleep and breath the farm-to-table movement, but almost none of them approach food with an emphasis on health and nutrition.

Chefs drive the trends we see in food. They create trends that make their way into the packaged foods we buy each week at the market. Chefs have the biggest voice in influencing the way people interact with and consume food. Yet, none are telling the story in a way that will inspire people to eat for health and longevity, despite having all of the ingredients right in front of them (pun intended).


2014 BARE BONES WAS BORN: I decided I wanted to tell a different story. And what better way to begin my story than to take the base of all cooking (stock) and reinvent it. What if I take this timeless staple, used in kitchens around the world for generations, and breathe new life into it not just as an ingredient, but as a source of serious nourishment, while simultaneously telling the farm-to-table story so important to the health of our food system.  Stock making is the oldest and most widely taught tradition in cooking, so we honor and embody this tradition in everything that we do, taking absolutely zero shortcuts.


Where do your ingredients come from?

Answer: We source all of our bones from ranches who raise their animals on open pastures 100% of their lives. For beef, we work with a network of ranches around the country, with our biggest supply coming from Bartels Farms in Oregon. For chicken, we work closely with Mary's Chickens out of California. All of these animals meet and/or exceed the rigorous animal welfare standards of the Global Animal Partnership (GAP), a third party certifying organization we're proud to partner with to bring an added and much needed layer of transparency to our products and the industry as a whole. For produce, we only use 100% organic vegetables and herbs sourced from a handful of farms in the Pacific Northwest. We've worked closely with produce distributor Charlies Produce based in Portland, Oregon to bring us the best seasonal ingredients for our broths.

Do you use apple cider vinegar?

Answer: No, we do not use apple cider vinegar. Previously, we did. After having two different formulations lab tested, one with apple cider vinegar and one without, we learned that the nutritional profile did not change. Our proprietary cooking process yields incredibly high extractions on all raw materials, so the vinegar isn't necessary. Despite the common notion that bone broth must have vinegar to pull nutrients from the bones and cartilage, we simply haven't found this to be true when comparing nutritional lab results.

Is Bare Bones broth made from real bones?

Answer: Yes, our bone broths are made from real bones that came from real animals that lived their entire lives on open pastures the way nature intended. We work closely with ranches nationwide to source only the highest quality and humanely raised meat products. Stock, broth, bone broth, etc. shouldn't be made with anything other than REAL food. Many broths and stocks are made from pastes that are reconstituted with water and then packaged. We fill our kettles with hundreds of pounds of bones, joints, tendons and cartilage that would have otherwise been waste, and simmer it for 24 hours to extract every last nutrient.

Are the pouches shelf stable or do they need to be refrigerated?

Answer: Bare Bones broths need to be frozen or refrigerated. To keep our broths as pure as possible, we do not use preservatives, high-heat pasteurization or aseptic procedures. They have have 1 year shelf life if kept frozen, and can last up to 45 days in the fridge. Once opened, they should be consumed within 7-10 days.

Do you use non-GMO bones and vegetables?

Answer: Bare Bones broths are made from 100% organic and non-GMO ingredients. We will never use GMO-feed or genetically modified produce. All of our animals are 100% pasture-raised and spend their entire lives on open pastures as nature intended, and are sometimes fed non-GMO vegetarian feed during the winter months.

Is this Whole30 compliant?

Answer: Yes, all of our products are Whole30 Approved.

Do you use any preservatives or artificial flavorings?

Answer: Bare Bones bone broths contain zero preservatives or artificial flavorings. We only use 100% real food ingredients to craft our broths with a focus on nutrients and flavor. This includes bones and joints from 100% pasture-raised animals with 100% organic produce and herbs. Our bone broths are packaged in proprietary pouch that we constructed specifically to give our broths a 1 year frozen/45 day refrigerated shelf life without the use of preservatives. Unlike many competitors that use things like lactic acid or excessive amounts of vinegar to alter the pH levels enough to make them shelf stable. Packaging straight from the kettle to preserve the maximum amount of flavor and nutrients, our bone broth is as pure as it gets.

Can't I just make my own bone broth at home?

Answer: Of course! Bone Broth is not witchcraft, so you don't need to be the descendent of a witch to make it. Nor do you need an overpriced, specialized degree, or even experience. Simply Google "how to make bone broth" or, if you're into cookbooks, you can search Amazon for The Bare Bones Broth Cookbook, where we've put together a good chunk of info and 125 recipes that walk you through the basics of bone broth as well as over a hundred different ways to use it in your cooking.

What's the difference between bone broth and regular broth or stock?

Answer: The big difference is nutritional profile, which is a result of types of bones used and cook time. Real bone broth is made using the bones and joints of animals, the more connective tissue the better, as this is where the collagen and gelatin come from. Regular broths tend to be made with more muscle meat than bone, and classic stocks are very similar to bone broth but are usually cooked for 8-12 hours versus 24. Our bone broths are crafted for nourishment and contain 12-13g of protein per 8oz serving, along with 10-20% of your daily calcium per 8oz serving.

Are these pouches microwaveable?

Answer: Yes, our pouches are microwaveable! Our proprietary construction gives our pouch the same functionality and safety as glass, but requires 50% of the raw materials and energy to produce and transport! Our pouches are 100% recyclable and BPA-free, and can be heated safely in the microwave.

About Us : 

Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of helping Paleo Diet Adherents easily identify products that met the basic tenets of the diet.  Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Paleo Approved, Paleo Vegan, and Paleo Friendly Certification Programs.


100% of  Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through Paleo Certifications. We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any paleo certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard. 

How we determine Paleo Certification Standards:

The Paleo Foundation develops Certification Standards from a mixture of input from various experts in the Paleo Movement, community input, and from logically and critically assessing arguments for the inclusion or exclusion of specific foods. After all, the Paleo Diet is a theoretical template, and therefore logic must be taken into account when making determinations for an entire community. 

Paleo Approved, Certified Paleo, Paleo Friendly, and PaleoVegan Certification Programs:

Each Paleo Certification Program has a different set of standards. For the absolute strictest standards, Paleo Approved certifies farms, ranches, and single-ingredient products. Certified Paleo, the most popular of the Paleo Certification programs certifies products that contain Paleo Diet ingredients, but have some 21st century processing methods allowing for shelf stability. The Paleo Friendly Program allows for products that are generally regarded as gray-area products such as kombucha, dark chocolate, and even grass-fed dairy.
