Frequently Asked Questions
Why isn't my broth frozen?
If you are a long times Bare Bones fan, you may have noticed the broth is no longer frozen. Instead of shipping frozen, as of late 2017 they now ship all of their broth at room temperature.
Don't worry! Their broths are, and always will be, chef-crafted from the highest quality organic ingredients, and provide all the amazing taste and health benefits a REAL bone broth has to offer. They will never use any preservatives, additives, or any other funky ingredients that shouldn't be in their food.
Shipping frozen liquid was quite expensive and had a much bigger impact on the planet than they're okay with, so this switch to shelf-stable packaging allows us to build a more sustainable eco-friendly business, and lower their costs while delivering the same REAL food nourishment for less.
What separates Bare Bones broth from all the rest?
Glad you asked! They love this question. The answer is simple, priorities. They pride themselves on using only bones from animals that were humanely raised on open pastures with clean diets free of antibiotics, hormones and grains. They prioritize this above all else because what goes into the animals body goes into our body. They only use organic vegetables and herbs and their water is filtered, ensuring the final product is as pure and flavorful as it is packed full of vitamins, minerals and gelatin.
Their broths are slowly simmered for 24 hours using steam instead of an open flame. This is a much more gentle and efficient cooking method, reducing the amount of energy required to extract nutrients while ensuring they're getting every last nutrient and flavor morsel they can from the ingredients. Once the simmer is complete, they remove all the fat, impurities, and sediment before reducing the broth to concentrate the nutrients and flavor. This process is really what allows us to create the most pure broth on the market. By removing moisture, instead of adding it like most broth products, they're concentrating the nutrients that really give bone broth it's defining and nourishing characteristics. They strongly believe this is the only honest way to make a bone broth that does what it's supposed to. The day they're no longer the most nutrient-dense and highest quality broth on the market is the day they'll shut their doors.
You can rest assured knowing that their broths are free of gluten, dairy, soy, preservatives, MSG, powders, added flavorings and added colorings. All of their protein sources come from certified GAP (Global Animal Partneship) ranches here in the US.
*All of their products are made in a USDA facility free of: gluten, dairy and soy.

How is Bare Bones broth prepared?
Their broths are slowly simmered in small batches for 24 hours to extract as much nutrients and flavor as possible. After they're done simmering, they skim and then strain the broths before packaging in BPA-free spouted pouches. Once packed, they heat the broth in the sealed pouch to ensure freshness and longevity.
Can I freeze my broth?
Absolutely! Their broths have an 12-month shelf life at ambient temperatures, but they some people have more room in the freezer than in the pantry.
Although the pouch can be frozen, it is not technically designed for it. Liquids contract and expand when freezing and thawing, so they cannot take responsibility for any damage that may result from the freezing and thawing process. If you're set on freezing their broths, they suggest transferring them to a freeze-safe container.
Are there vinegar or other acids added to Bare Bones bone broth?
Just about all literature surrounding bone broth would have you believe that acid is necessary to extract the goodness from the bones. In fact, they previously used apple cider vinegar in their products and it is still an ingredient for the recipes in their cookbook. However, they have been able to achieve high extractions without it.
They have lab tested their recipes both with and without vinegar. Their new cooking process, using steam, has such high extraction yields that they decided to remove the apple cider vinegar, as this new process yields more protein (gelatin/collagen) per serving, more calcium (20% daily value per serving, for Classic Chicken) and better flavor (or so they think!).
Is Bare Bones broth GMO free?
All of their chicken and turkey broths are Certified Organic, which means they are also GMO-free. Their beef broths are not Certified Organic, but they use only grass-fed, grass-finished beef from a collective of small ranchers, most of whom cannot afford the lengthy and expensive certification process. They have vetted these ranchers thoroughly though and are confident their animals are not fed GMOs. If this doesn't answer your question please don't hesitate to contact us. They proudly stand behind each of their ingredients!
The Bare Bones Story
2003 - Personal Loss
Ryan Harvey's the founder of Bare Bones dad passed away at 39 years old of a heart attack. No warning signs. His grandfather wasn't much older when he passed. Aside from genetics and the uncanny ability to light up a room with their presence, they both had something else in common - poor diets, zero exercise, and smoked like chimneys.
Determined to turn off bad genes and turn on good ones, Ryan turned to nutrition and exercise and committed myself to a life of health and wellness in hopes that he wouldn't succumb to the same fate. Ryan realized that while he cannot control my genetics, he can control how he fuels and treat my body. Something Ryan is convinced can change genes and add quality and longevity to life.
2005 - Self-Discovery
When Ryan joined the military at age 19, he became obsessed with exercise, eventually discovering CrossFit and subsequently the paleo lifestyle. A big part of paleo is eating foods that are local and in-season, just as you would if you still had to hunt, raise, grow and harvest your own food. Humans evolved eating this way - specifically learning to hunt animals that roamed freely on open lands. This way of eating and viewing food just made sense to me. Humans wouldn't be as intelligent and evolved as they are if it weren't for millions of years of consuming healthy animal proteins and fats.
Ryan became fascinated with food, and enrolled in culinary school post-military, going on to earn an internship at Nine Ten Restaurant & Bar in La Jolla, California. Ryan quickly realized the chef life is not for me. Ryan loved working with local farms and ranches, always using the best seasonal ingredients and pastured meats. But the crazy hours, egos, and poor diet left me undernourished, stressed out, and deflated.
2012 Moment of Clarity
The greatest thing happened during Ryan's time in the restaurant. It dawned on him that chefs, the very people who created and live the farm-to-table movement that he loves, are some of the unhealthiest people on the planet. To them, it's not about health or food as fuel, it's about flavor. It's about taking ingredients when they are at their prime and telling their story on a plate. They eat, sleep and breath the farm-to-table movement, but almost none of them approach food with an emphasis on health and nutrition.
Chefs drive the trends they see in food. They create trends that make their way into the packaged foods they buy each week at the market. Chefs have the biggest voice in influencing the way people interact with and consume food. Yet, none are telling the story in a way that will inspire people to eat for health and longevity, despite having all of the ingredients right in front of them (pun intended).
2014 - Bare Bones Was Born
Ryan Harvey decided he wanted to tell a different story. And what better way to begin his story than to take the base of all cooking (stock) and reinvent it. What if he took this timeless staple, used in kitchens around the world for generations, and breathe new life into it not just as an ingredient, but as a source of serious nourishment, while simultaneously telling the farm-to-table story so important to the health of the food system. Stock making is the oldest and most widely taught tradition in cooking, so they honor and embody this tradition in everything that they do, taking absolutely zero shortcuts.
