Paleo/AIP Acceptable Food #5: High Glycine Foods
Within the last year high glycine foods have become extremely popular and a lot of that rave has been with bone broth. Bone broth is great for anyone and particularly those abiding by the Autoimmune Protocol and Paleo diets. However, not every bone broth should be trusted and some fall short of delivering all the desired nutrition or contain additives that can be harmful to some, particularly those on the AIP diet. Let’s break it down.
