TUALATIN, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The more than seven out of 10 consumers who are looking to add more protein to their diets* have a new, old option to consider – bone broth. Top-selling organic broth brand Pacific Foods is introducing a line of organic readymade varieties, developed to increase accessibility to the traditional recipe, which takes up to 24 hours to make.
With high protein, low calories and a myriad of reported wellness benefits, it’s easy to see why health enthusiasts, Paleo diet practitioners and CrossFit-ers, have led the way in reviving the ancient – and time intensive – practice of making sippable bone broth from scratch.
“Our bone broth has more protein than a glass of milk, half the calories and a heck of a lot more flavor,” said Kevin Tisdale, vice president of marketing for Pacific Foods. “Now, consumers can simply pour, heat and enjoy in just minutes.”
Tradition Meets Innovation
Pacific’s organic bone broths are made by slowly simmering organic chicken and turkey bones, sourced from pasture-raised poultry, in a classic combination of apple cider vinegar, water, onion, fresh herbs and seasonings for a full 24 hours. The result is a broth that’s as rich in nutrition and flavor as homemade, with 9 grams of protein and only 40 calories per serving, and the additional benefits of being shelf-stable and available in convenient, resealable 32 and 8 ounce sizes. A glace-style organic bone stock is also available in chicken and turkey flavors, simmered for up to eight hours and boasting 14 grams of protein.
Sip by the Cup, Simmer and Sauté
Lightly seasoned with sea salt and fragrant herbs, consumers can warm and drink for a savory, protein-packed snack, or use in place of water when cooking grains and beans to add complex flavor and a boost of nutrition. The broths come in five distinct varieties:
- Organic Chicken with Ginger, 8 oz
- Organic Chicken with Lemongrass, 8 oz
- Organic Chicken Original (Unsalted), 8 oz and 32 oz
- Organic Turkey with Rosemary, Sage & Thyme, 8 oz
- Organic Turkey (Unsalted), 32 oz
Both the 8 and 32 ounce bone broths are packaged in BPA-free aseptic cartons, and the 15.2 ounce bone stock is packed in BPA-free recart cartons. All are available nationwide at natural food stores and conventional grocers with a SRP of $1.79 - $2.39, $4.89 - $5.89, and $4.59 - $5.59, respectively.
