I recently found a bargain deal from whole foods of a box of 13lb grass-fed beef bones for $0.99/lb. The individual packages sell for $2.99/lb.
When I got home and opened the box, I noticed some frost around the bones. My concern is are the bones still good for bone stock? Did the freezing process made it less nutrient dense?
I wanted to know so next time I can decide if I should still buy in bulk or go with individual packages that do not have as much frost around the bones.
Really appreciate the information! :)

The frozen bones I get (or freeze myself) always have freezer burn by the time I use them and I have never had a problem turning them into great broth. The only time I tossed frozen bones was when the bag I had them in had a hole and the bones smelled like the freezer smelled. I now double bag the bones and haven't had another problem.
