Should you eat bone broth always with fat?

So, do you have to eat bone broth AND fat in order to get all the nutrients from it or does eating only bone broth (because the fat is discarded) works just fine?

EDIT: What I actually meant: Can you absorb all of the minerals, amino acids, etc. in bone broth without fat?

Edited my question. My bone broth is made with pig feet from conventional raised pigs, so I don't think the fat will be my best friend. Especially when suffering from chronic inflammation and stress...

I could be wrong, but I don't think broth is known as a good source of fat soluble vitamins. It's more for the easily absorbed minerals and amino acids (proline, lysine, and glycine, mostly).

You can leave some of the fat in the broth, but it's even better skimmed off and saved for cooking/frying -- beef tallow, yum!

Your best sources of fat-soluble vitamins have nothing to do with bone broth. ;-)

In other words, you can drink it with or without the fat...either way, broth is a wonderful thing to add to your diet, but don't look to it as the place to get your A,D,E, & K.

I was under the impression that even after skimming the fat off the top, there is still a good amount of fat left over. I know that even skimming the fat, after letting it sit in the fridge I get more fat congealed on top which mixes back into the broth when I heat it up.
