It may have been around for a few years now, but bone broth is still gaining ground on the high streets and in the homes of Britain. From its humble beginnings in the blogosphere to the mainstream attention it’s receiving today (Pret a Manger now sell cups of bone broth to busy people in need of nourishment), it seems to be quite the divisive topic. People either rave about how healthy it is for your gut, liver, bones, muscles, digestion and sleep patterns (making it sound like some sort of miracle cure) or dismiss it as basic beef stock that’s undergone a pretty effective marketing campaign. It is, after all, nothing more than bones boiled in water for a very long time, perhaps with herbs or spices added. While it’s been used in cooking for millennia, it’s only recently been put in a coffee cup and sold as a health drink.
Are you a bone broth fanatic or do you laugh in the face of people who shell out good money for hot, meaty water? Do you believe the hype around the health benefits or just think it’s all been blown out of proportion? Is this the first time you’ve heard of bone broth? Make your voice heard!
