Frequently Asked Questions

About FOND Bone Broth Tonics

Does FOND Bone Broth need to be refrigerated?

No! Our bone broth is now shelf stable. Our same recipes for years NOW approved to be sold without refrigeration! It is a beautiful intersection of time-honored tradition and modern technology. This means: No preservatives or even sneaky ones like added acids or celery salt. 

How is FOND shelf stable? What canning process is used?

FOND uses a state of the art canning mechanism called a retort. This is a canner that can vary in size from a catering cart to the length of a room! FOND is canned in glass jars because it is the most environmentally friendly way to produce, store and distribute our bone broth. It is a product without any added preservatives or unwanted acids, so it is pure in flavor and unmatched in quality!

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 FOND Pasture Raised?

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. It is SO important to our Founding Family. 

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.

We recommend not using a PO Box as a destination. FOND Bone Broth LLC is not held liable for issues due to a carrier not delivering to a PO Box. We will not replace or refund a package that was sent to a PO Box unsuccessfully.

Why is my order taking so long to get to me?

Issues with orders placed more than 60 days ago

Unfortunately, FOND holds no liability for what happens to the product after it has been received in good condition. We cannot replace or refund a product that did not have any tangible issues with it upon arrival at the original destination.

If the product was received at the original destination with tangible issues, and we were not notified of this upon receiving, then we are unable to refund or replace said product.

Glass Jar Information

Do you have a jar recycling program? I have so many glass jars I don't know what to do with!

We do not have a jar recycling program, as it is just not a possibility with our process, the jars don't have reliable integrity to be used commercially again and again as they will explode. We chose glass packaging to eliminate waste by recycling. 

We recommend that our customers recycle their jars according to local guidelines, or repurpose the jars!

We've had customers make candles, hand soap dispensers, flower vases, and so many more things out of FOND jars!

Can I put my FOND jars in the dishwasher?

Yes you can! They are dishwasher safe. However the lids will not re-seal after dishwashing. The lids are also steel-coated, so after they've been in the dishwasher a few times, keep an eye out for any rust forming.
