Broth and Marrow vs Gelatin and Raw Organic Egg Yolks ?

Commented on August 14, 2014
Created August 11, 2014 at 1:40 PM

I used to do broth with sheep bones in a pressurized way and eat the marrow but I feel like it may be applying too much heat to be able to break the bones to get the marrow for the marrow to remain healthy, there's not data on what else is in the broth other than gelatin and gelatin comes at a much cheaper and convenient price, and I can do raw organic egg yolks instead of marrow. I'm not sure if there's any significant difference between broth and gelatin like an important amount of glycosaminoglycans such as glucosamine...

What do you think ?

I live in Turkey and my concerns over A1 type extends to most of the bovine products including bones so far so supplying bones differently won't probably be a solution to me, and I can't imagine a practical enough way to eat the marrow healthily...

Mammals sequester toxins in their fat, not their bones or bone marrow. But traditionally raised livestock will have more minerals in their marrow, because it's not being leached out to compensate for a diet the animal didn't evolve to eat.

As far as mineral amounts in bones, the only study about minerals in bone broth was done on lamb bones, and those bones were simmered for only nine hours. AFAIK, no one's studied cow bones simmered for 24 hours.

I always thought that organics is the real value of bone broth. the minerals really are not much. Less than 100 mg of Ca per serving for example. It probably makes a difference whether you made broth with something having cartilage, or not.

  • glysine
  • proline
  • glucosamine sulfate
  • all the minerals from the bone matrix

All these elements are nececessary to repair and maintain joint tissues.

what is wrong with having the marrow bones sawed, then roasted for 20 minutes in the oven? They re delicious like that.
