we’ve been consuming bacteria since the beginning of our existence. some of it by chance and accident, and some of it deliberately. our recent ancestors as far back as 8,000 years ago learned how to use controlled fermentation to their advantage. by introducing specific bacteria, or by controlling the environment to allow the natural proliferation of the bacteria that we want, we can ferment organic matter, and there are all kinds of benefits that come with it.
fermentation is the process by which we introduce beneficial bacteria to organic material. the bacteria then feed on sugars and other nutrients which pre-digests the food, and also transforms it into other beneficial nutrients. through fermentation, we make foods easier to digest, introduce beneficial bacteria to our system, and create beneficial nutrients that didn’t exist before.
bone stock is the liquid from simmered bones, scraps, and connective tissue of animals. once simmered, the nutrients from the bones and connective tissues dissolve into the water. the liquid is filled with all kinds of great stuff that we might not normally get from eating muscle meat.
ancestral cultures have been consuming bone stock for hundreds of thousands of years. check out all the great benefits of bone stock in this short post.
