In April 2016 Undivided Food Co. launched GOOD BONES™, the first Certified Organic fresh bone broth to be made in Australia. Then came GOOD Gravy, the only certified organic, paleo friendly gravy made in Australia. Now we are very excited about launching NO BONES, the first certified organic fresh veggie & vegan friendly broth made in Australia.
Many shelf stable vegetable based stocks and broths available on the market are highly processed (which destroys the nutrients) and/or contain artificial ingredients or additives that you wouldn’t find in a homemade broth. Ingredients you won’t find in NO BONES that you might find on the list in organic and non-organic commercial stocks and broths include:
- High levels of salt often containing bleach and other synthetic chemicals
- Sugar disguised in multiple forms such as fruit concentrates, molasses and cane sugar, sometimes all in the one broth
- Inflammatory industrial seed/vegetable oils such as canola, safflower and sunflower oil
- Yeast extract (a source of glutamate), monosodium glutamate (MSG) and other flavour enhances
- Artificial colourings and preservatives
The concern with non-organic broth varieties is that they contain vegetables that are laden with pesticides and other chemical residues, which are then transferred into the broth. Over 400 chemical pesticides are used in conventional farming to control weeds and pests that destroy the crops. There is now evidence that some of these chemicals are health threatening.
Due to the high number of requests for a certified organic vegetable based broth, NO BONES was a no brainer. After hours spent in the kitchen trialing multiple veggie combos, we now have the best tasting, nutritious certified organic vegetable broth available.
While NO BONES doesn’t have the same nutritional benefits as our GOOD BONES™ Bone Broth in terms of the gelatin and protein content, it’s rich in vitamins, minerals and health boosting antioxidants. Not forgetting its delicious flavour making it a fast and fabulous cooking companion for risottos, soups, stews, baby food or simply enjoyed on its own as a light snack.
Undivided Food Co remains undivided and totally committed to providing the highest quality products as we continue making real, time-honoured and nutrient-dense food as delicious and convenient as possible.
