Frequently Asked Questions
What is the main source of protein used in Bone Broth Protein™ products?
Our products only contain chicken.
Are the chickens free range?
While free-range is a legally defined term, we do not feel that current definition of free-range is strong enough. We are working aggressively to establish and verify Animal Wellness Certification standards through our entire supply chain. In the interest of full disclosure, the supply chain, i.e. the number of actual farms supplying chickens, while exclusively based in the U.S., is still quite large. It will take some time to ensure that our standards are being met, but all of our suppliers have been communicated with and they understand that we will pay a premium for this certification.
Is Bone Broth Protein™ organic?
While today’s initial offering of Ancient Nutrition Bone Broth Protein™ is not certified organic, we are working quickly on two fronts:
- Developing certified organic bone broth based-product solutions to come out in the near future.
- We are working with our production partner and their supply chain (poultry ranchers) to raise the bar across the board on all standards related to USDA Certified Organic or in the spirit of what these standards represent.
How is Bone Broth Protein™ Made?
We rely on high pressure and sustained high heat to expedite the process using chicken bones, which are naturally high in glycosaminoglycans (Chondroitin, Glucosamine, Hyaluronic Acid) and connective tissue. Shorter cooking times help to retain nutrients (glycosaminoglycans and minerals such as Potassium, Sodium, Calcium and Magnesium) often lost when cooked for long periods of time. It is then carefully dried with no added fillers or excipients.
Do you test for GMOs?
Our chicken bone broth concentrate is PCR Tested to be free of GMOs. PCR testing is the standard DNA test used to detect the presence of GMOs.
Is the Xanthan Gum, used in the Chocolate and Vanilla formulas, Non-GMO?
Yes, we source our Xanthan Gum from Europe where GMOs are banned.
Do you test for heavy metals?
Yes, our product is tested for a wide range of heavy metals, including lead, and we are happy to say that all of our products fall well below the most stringent standards in the industry (California Prop 65).
Do you test for herbicide or pesticide residue?
Yes, our product is consistently tested for dozens of pesticides and herbicides and we are thrilled with the results and confident in representing that our results absolutely represent the spirit of the organic standards.
Do you test for antibiotics and growth hormones?
We are committed to providing product solutions that achieve the highest levels of quality, safety, purity and efficacy. We are testing the product for so many of the quality standards that our consumers care about – including hormones and antibiotics – once we have the confirmed analysis, our official label claims and product claims will be updated and our retail partners will be updated and provided the proper documentation as well.
Do you use any carriers like maltodextrin?
No! Our Bone Broth Concentrate is a pure, dehydrated bone broth concentrate that is spray dried without the use of any carriers. Furthermore, the product does not contain any binders or fillers.
