Gelatin-free broth?

Does anyone know of a method for a chicken or beef broth that is gelatin-free or has minimal gelatin? I think my 7mo DD is super sensitive to it . Veggie is not a great option either bc she is sensitive to lots of those as well. Maybe something with mushrooms could work...

Interesting! I just googled miso because I really don't know what it is, lol. And I see a company called South River makes some allergy-friendly miso (vegan, soy and gluten free). This might actually be an option, thank you!

Re: Gelatin-free broth?

Do you want to make broth, or use a prepackaged broth? Gelatin in broth or, more so, stock, is created by dissolving (hydrolyzing) the collagen in connective tissue. Stock is characterized by a high gelatin content, which is why it jiggles when cooled and is made using bones and tough cuts with lots of sinew. If you want to minimize the amount of gelatin in your broth, you're going to want to make it with pure, boneless meat that has little or no connective tissue. So, you'll want to use boneless, skinless chicken breasts for chicken broth, and for beef broth, you'll want something like eye of round. Unfortunately, eye of round doesn't offer much flavor, but it would be sad to waste filet or strip on broth. Good luck!

Re: Gelatin-free broth?

I make my own broth in our crock pot or the stove. Here is a recipe for a super easy way to do it for practically nothing. I never use geletin or anything like it.

Yes, I want to make my own. Thanks for the info on what I could use! Very informative, I may try the chicken breast first.
