4 - How do I heat the broth?

To remove from its container, defrost the broth overnight in the refrigerator or our preferred method is to run the container under a hot tap of water for about a minute. Once the frozen broth is loosened from its package, it should be removed from its container and heated on the stove or in the microwave to a boil, 5-10 minutes.

We do not recommend that you feed Taking Stock Bone Broths to your pet. We use shallots ( a type of onion in the Allium species) in our Bone Broths. Research shows that Alliums are potentially toxic for dogs and cats.

Vegan Mushroom Ginger Broth does not contain any shallots, and does not contain any other ingredients that are toxic to dogs and cats.

"I’ve always been a huge fan of drinking broth, but I have tried basically every store bought option and never really enjoyed them….until trying Taking Stock’s unsalted chicken broth today. It is truly incredible."
- Chandler, CA

“I love the convenience of having a broth subscription. It’s always available when I need an easy breakfast or a warm up in the evening.”
- Christine, Minneapolis

"I tried the salted broth tonight and it was great! Very rich, but not heavy. I'm excited to experiment with adding in different flavors and spices!"
- Jason, Minneapolis

“Excellent product. Much more flavorful than grocery store stocks and the protein content is at least double. I appreciate that it is made from local and organic ingredients without added flavorings or concentrates. I get a monthly subscription delivered and use it for cooking and sipping.”
- Katherine, Minneapolis

"Taking Stock is the best chicken broth I have ever tried, made by two of the nicest people I've ever met! (They also make a vegetarian version too!) I would recommend this broth to anyone!"
- Jeff, Minneapolis

"I highly recommend Taking Stock broth. It’s great for cooking or drinking if you’re feeling under the weather. There is no comparison between Taking Stock’s product and other boxed broth you can buy at the store. Sure, it’s a bit more expensive than traditional store bought broth but in my opinion, my health and support of a local company with the same food values as me justifies the cost."
- Brian, Buffalo MN
