What is bone marrow?

Bone marrow is the soft, spongy filling found in the centre of bones.

This tissue produces red and white blood cells, platelets and plasma, which in turn are responsible for oxygen transportation, immune function, and blood clotting.

A Traditional Food

Though it has fallen out of favour in many modern cuisines, traditionally marrow bones have played an important role in the human diet because of its high nutritional value.

Whether incorporated into stews and soups, or scooped out and eaten directly from the bone, marrow was a prized nutritional resource across all continents.

There is even research that indicates that it was the nutrient dense marrow that our pre-human ancestors scavenged from the kills of other predators that helped us evolve our large brains!
