After publishing our original article, we reviewed feedback from readers and found that some people were misinterpreting the findings. Because we want to communicate with readers as accurately as possible, we developed a streamlined reporting system and scoring system that we believe provides a more accurate assessment of what's in bone broth products (and what isn't in them). Keep reading to learn more... (and see two results charts below)...
As the executive director of the Consumer Wellness Center, I'm excited to bring you this announcement: We're now publishing final bone broth lab test results for 10 products -- 2 organic and 8 non-organic -- using our new, streamlined reporting format that covers pesticides, heavy metals, pharmacological chemicals and more.
All results are being released this week via Good Gopher Mail, a free inbox service for uncensored email receiving. Register your free inbox at Good Gopher Mail to receive all these lab test results and other results as we move forward. We're testing Pop-Tarts, gluten-free foods, dog food and salad dressings next. Also scheduled for testing are breakfast cereals and more nutritional supplements.
These results use our new reporting format (see examples below) and cover bone broth products from Left Coast, Jarrow's, Ancient Nutrition, LonoLife, Precision Naturals and other manufacturers. Our new format is an attempt to improve our reporting to better communicate our findings with consumers. To accomplish that, we calculate a final score from 1 - 100 for each product. This final score is the first number you see at the very top of each chart as shown below.
So far, we've had two products achieve a perfect score (100), and they are both organic bone broth products (see below). The conventional (non-organic) bone broth products tested by the CWC, as we previously reported, contained trace levels of various chemicals such as insect repellents, pharmacological chemicals and others. What's especially fascinating here is that the lab tests are confirming the advantage of certified organic products.
Remember: Sign up at Good Gopher Mail to receive all our lab test results as we publish. Lots more product are in the testing queue right now, and those results will be published via Good Gopher Mail.
Here are the two products that have so far received a perfect score of 100 out of 100 (lot numbers are being added shortly but may not yet be reflected in the charts below):
Ancient Nutrition: Organic Bone Broth Collagen
Testing Date: 10/13/2017
Left Coast: Organic Grass-Fed Bone Broth Powder
Testing Date: 10/20/2017
