Our broths are triple sieved through unbleached cheese cloths in order to strain all sediments for a clear “liquid gold.” If you see small white bits, that is natural fat from the bones. We do skim most of the fat, but you may see a small amount. Not to worry because they will dissolve when you heat the broth. If you notice any tiny green bits floating, it will be from our fresh pressed spinach and parsley shots. They enhance the flavour and richness of our broths and add delicious nutrients and minerals.
