Bones are primarily made of protein. Sure, we think of them as mostly calcium, but calcium is only a small portion of the total construct. Most of Bone Matrix, the part that is not marrow, is collagen. Collagen is protein.
Protein is essential in our diet. But many are now cutting back on red meat because of the threat of cholesterol and triglycerides in fatty meats. Others elininate meat for perceived ethical considerations. But we still need protein!! And we can get it.
Lean meats such as poultry, fish, and bison can answer the cholesterol and triglyceride issues. So can low fat ricotta and cottage cheeses (28g/cup). Mollusks and crustaceans too. But what of non-animal sources?
