Cooking bone broth: How it works

More about bone broth
Before we launched our JARMINO bone broths, we cooked a lot of bone broth in the kitchen at home and made a few mistakes in the process. We want to save you from the five biggest mistakes so that you get the maximum amount of nutrients such as protein and collagen from your bone stock.
5 tipps and tricks for cooking bone broth
1. roast bones for the bone broth
Before you boil the bones, we recommend roasting them briefly in a pan. Alternatively, bake them in the oven at 180 degrees Celsius. This will develop roasting aromas that enhance the flavour of the bone stock. This makes the broth darker and more intense in taste.
2. soak bones in vinegar
An important step is to soak the bones in vinegar before cooking the bone stock. Vinegar contains acid, which extracts the minerals from the bones. You can use any type of vinegar, such as apple vinegar (which we use), or balsamic vinegar.
Buy bone broth
Soak the cold bones in vinegar and cold water (we recommend 2 tablespoons of vinegar in 1 litre of cold water) for 45 minutes. Cold water is important because it helps the vinegar to extract calcium from the bones. After soaking, heat the vinegar water slowly, this helps to bring out the aromas optimally.
3. boil bone stock for a long time
Long cooking of the bone broth also helps to extract the minerals and nutrients. You should boil the bone stock for at least 6-8 hours. We even cook our beef bone broth and chicken bone broth for 20 hours. This long cooking produces a concentrated, collagen-rich broth that is incredibly rich and full of flavour.
4. cooking fresh vegetables with the broth
When we cook our organic soups and souping soups, in which we use a variety of vegetables, we often have lots of vegetable leftovers. We all use these leftovers for our bone soups. This is one of the reasons why our broths are so varied and tasty. We waste nothing!
So the next time you cook and cut celery, carrots or onions and carrot ends, leaves of carrots or the heart of celery and onion skins are left over, put them in a bag and put them in the freezer for the next time you want to make a broth.
5. also use foot bones
Do not be afraid to add chicken feet to your bone stock. Chicken feet consist mainly of tendons, bones and cartilage and contain a lot of gelatine. Chicken feet provide a fine golden-yellow broth that is rich in nutrients such as glucosamine, collagen and trace elements, which is so nutritious. Chicken feet can be hard to find, try butchers' shops and farmers' markets.
How often do you drink bone broth?
We recommend drinking a maximum of 2 cups of broth a day.
Of course our bone stock contains many nutrients, but you should drink it in moderation so that your body can get used to it. Remember that you will benefit more if you drink the broth regularly in small units.

The Bone Broth Diet
As many complaints and diseases start in the intestine, intestinal health plays a central role in the bone broth diet.
More and more studies are drawing a link between poor bowel health and inflammation in the body. Such inflammation can be the trigger for diseases like bowel disease, skin and autoimmune diseases like psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis, overweight and obesity (1).
Intestinal damage and the resulting chronic inflammation is often caused by our modern lifestyles. Many of the foods we consume today contain few nutrients and fibre, but a lot of sugar and artificial additives that are toxic to the body. This upsets the balance of bacteria in the intestines, with good bacteria declining while bad bacteria thrive. The result can be a leaky bowel, which allows foreign substances to enter the body and cause inflammation.
Bone broth for diet in a jars
With the bone broth diet you support your body with minerals and nutrients so that you can build up a healthy intestinal flora and either eliminate or even prevent inflammation. By changing your diet from a diet that is usually too rich in carbohydrates to a balanced diet consisting of proteins, fibre and healthy fats, we want to put your body in a state of ketosis, where it uses its own fat reserves as a source of energy.
By additionally integrating fasting days into the 21-day diet, you can lose weight efficiently with the bone stock diet. The bone broth is our most important aid in this process. On the one hand, it provides nutrients such as amino acids, collagen and glycosaminoglycans, which support the stabilisation of the intestinal flora, and on the other hand, as a low-calorie appetite suppressant, it is the optimal dietary aid.
Bone broth and Leaky Gut Syndrome
The Leaky Gut Syndrome is a permeable intestinal wall. This allows bacteria, toxins and allergens to enter the bloodstream. To remove these particles from the body, the immune system triggers an immune response. Although this is intended to protect you, any immune response causes an inflammation. This inflammation can become chronic and cause various diseases. Bone broth contains gelatine, collagen, the amino acids glutamine and glycine, and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which can help protect the intestinal wall. Here you can read more about the Leaky Gut Syndrome and bone broth.
