It begins with high-quality bones – grass-fed marrow and knuckle beef bones, and free-range chicken frames and feet. Their butcher deals with a handful of B.C. farms, oftentimes they are certified organic. The medicinal blend of spices includes fresh ginger, fresh turmeric root, dry turmeric powder, black peppercorns, green cardamom pods, cinnamon bark, fenugreek seeds and bay leaves. According to Ayurveda (an alternative medicine system), all of these spices support gut health and contain anti-inflammatory properties. When infused into the collagen-rich bone broth it forms a potent, restorative, delicious food.

Shorba roasts the bones to improve the flavour and add apple cider vinegar to extract the maximum amount of nutrients. All the spices we use are certified organic and fair-trade from India and Sri Lanka. Unlike almost all other bone broth brands, they do not use onions or garlic and this is intentionally done because as per Ayurveda they are not suited for sensitive stomachs (although they can be delicious and contain their own benefits, and can be simmered in while reheating).
