Hello, I have made bone broth several times and never experienced this.
I roasted then boiled cow bones for about 36 hours and then left the broth cooling for 2 days... (I forgot to put it in the fridge)
It still smelled ok so I used some of it and froze the rest.
After freezing it looks like some formations of whipped cream are inside the broth.
does anybody know what this is? and if it is ok to eat??
THANKS for reading, I would appreciate any help

When I make bone broth, I don't usually cook it long enough to break down the actual bones, really I'm cooking off the gelatin and marrow. When I do this I get a thin layer of stuff about the consistency of candle wax on top of the broth which I think the fat/tallow melted and resolidified.
You said you cooked yours 36 hours, that is long enough to start to break down the actual bones. My guess is that the cloudy stuff you're seeing is just disintegrated bone suspended in the broth which probably has a lot of gelatin and is probably pretty thick. This is not bad for you, here is some more information about the nutrition:
