Frequently Asked Questions

ABOUT FOND BONE BROTH TONICS

Does FOND Bone Broth need to be refrigerated?

Yes, our bone broth tonics are so fresh - they are required to be refrigerated! No preservatives or even sneaky ones like added acids or celery salt. The broth needs to be refrigerated at all times.

Why do you call it a “Tonic?”

Bone broth is good for you, but it is NOT always delicious, we take our flavor AND nutritional profiles one step further by infusing our bone broths with flavor combinations that nourish and delight.

What does FOND Mean?

FOND means foundation or base in French, and that’s a big part of why we’re here: to be the foundation of your culinary and nutritional life. We’re here to show you just how “good” good for you can taste!

How long does it last once opened?

Once it is opened, you have 4 - 7 days to use it. If you’re coming up on 7 days or are going to be heading out of town, pour the broth into an ice cube tray and freeze it.

Why is Pasture Raised chicken important?

Pasture raising chicken means volumes not only for the flavor and nutritional content of our bone broth but also for our impact on our land. Caged chickens are frequently given antibiotics and literally sleep in their own feces - it is sad friends and we want NO part of that. Our chickens graze in pastures under open skies and the farmer’s supplement with organic non-gmo feed so the chickens are healthy and happy.

Do you sell beef bone broth flavors?

We sell beef bone broth flavors at the Farmers’ Markets we attend.

ABOUT BONE BROTH

What are the benefits of drinking bone broth?


Gut Healthy - Bone broths provide building blocks for the rapidly growing cells of the gut lining and is a precious resource for finding all of the valuable amino acids, collagen, gelatin and trace minerals your body craves.

Soothes Inflammation - Chicken bone broth has a soothing effect on any areas of inflammation in the gut and chicken bone broth is especially nourishing on the stomach and is the foundation of our bone broth tonic line.

Respiratory Health - Studies have proven that the amino acids produced when making chicken bone broth reduced inflammation in the respiratory system and improved digestion.

Superfood - There are dozens of nutrients found within bone broth, many of which can’t be obtained easily from other commonly eaten foods.

Promotes Healthy Bone Formation - Healthy bone formation requires “an adequate and constant supply of nutrients” as follows: calcium, protein, magnesium, phosphorus, vitamin D, potassium, zinc, manganese, copper, boron, iron, vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin C, and the B vitamins.

Beautifying - Rich in collagen, bone broth aids in healthy and plump skin, the healthy growth of hair and nails and the remineralizing of teeth.

Weight Maintenance -  Bone broth is a good source of L-glutamine, an essential amino acid (building block of protein) necessary for the body and gut health. L-glutamine was found in studies to reduce the Firmicutes in the gut, therefore, aid in weight loss. Firmicutes are heavily linked with obesity. 

ABOUT OUR SHIPPING SOLUTION

Is your shipping solution eco-friendly?

Yes! Our shipping solutions cost us a pretty penny, but with good reason! Our insulators are actually recycled cotton and are easily biodegradable or reusable!

What should I do when I receive a package?

Step 1

When you open your bone broth all of the dry ice should have evaporated by arrival. Like a beautiful magic trick, your bone broth is chilled and ready to be moved to the refrigerator.

If there is still dry ice please leave it in the box as it will sublimate (disappear) on its own.

Step 2

Break down the box and open the white packaging. Recycle both. While we hope you keep the decorative box for future use, that is recyclable as well, so are the cardboard inserts.

Step 3

The cotton inserts are 100% biodegradable AND hypoallergenic, made from recycled cotton. You can use them in your garden beds, or simply compost them!
