Healing Low-FODMAP Bone Broth using Slow-Cooker; Gluten-free
September 23, 2017Printer Friendly Version
This is an amazing low-FODMAP beef bone broth that is made in the slow-cooker. Low-FODMAP bone broth is nutrient rich; packed with minerals and amino acids. These compounds form the building blocks for collagen, gelatin and glycosaminoglycan which promote healthy skin, hair, nails as well as intestinal and joint function. You can’t get these compounds in a store-bought stock or powder.
Low-FODMAP bone broth has been suggested to have numerous health benefits including alleviating joint pain, helping digestion and promoting immunity. It is also super easy in the slow-cooker or crock pot!

I’m looking forward to trying out your low fodmap bone broth recipe. It sounds tasty and painfree. I’m also interested in trying out your seasonings. Now that I am learning to avoid certain foods and spices, I’m finding it so hard to cook without my usual go to seasonings.
That is wonderful to hear! Hope you enjoy the broth and we know you will love our Happy Spices. Have a great day 🙂
I have some turkey neck bones in my freezer, would it be ok to add these with the beef bones should I add other spices?
I cant seem to print this recipe, am I missing something?
Thanks for your question! The turkey bones may cook faster than the beef ones. We have not tried this combination, so we can’t really comment for certain. To print, you may wish to copy and paste the page into a Word document, then print that. Hope that is helpful!
Does it work for the beef broth to be thickened to make beef gravy ??
Thanks in advance xx
Thanks for the question! You can use this bone broth as a substitute for beef broth or stock in any recipe you like. So it would be great to make gravy (try our low-FODMAP gravy recipe). Have a wonderful day 🙂
Thanks Rachel xx
Can you use a whole chicken?
Thanks for the question! This recipe is for beef bones, not chicken bones. However, if you want to make chicken stock, we have a different recipe for low-FODMAP Chicken Stock, that you could use a whole chicken for. See this link:Nourishing Low-FODMAP Chicken Soup with Low-FODMAP Matzo Balls recipe; Gluten-free, Dairy-free! Good luck
Can you use an Instant Pot for this? If so how would you adjust the time for cooking?
We think this is possible, but we do not have experience using an Instant Pot for this or other recipes. Sorry we can’t be more helpful. Good luck 🙂
Can you store this in the refrigerator?
This should be stored in the fridge or frozen. It should be good for 3-4 days in the refrigerator and 3 months if well frozen. Thanks for the question!
Hi! I’m drinking some great bone broth and just saw the ingredients include onion and garlic. I’m wondering if even though these are just essence (like tea), if they’re making this not so low-FODMAP? Would love to know your thoughts. Thanks!
Typically we suggest complete avoidance of anything containing onion and garlic, even small amounts. This includes broths, sauces, spice mixtures and other savory products.

This is so helpful! Thank you very much!
Hi! I’m so glad to have found these recipes – thank you! I’m a bit clueless when it comes to making broth and I’ve never done it, so this may be a silly question, but where do you get the bones for the broth?
Thank you in advance!
It is usually good to try your local butcher and ask if they have leftover bones they will either give or sell to you. Other options are to buy bones for bone broth from several online vendors that provide them. Good luck!
