    I have a couple of grass-fed beef bones that I took out of the freezer about four days ago with the intention of making bone broth, but I just haven't gotten around to it yet. The bones have a fair amount of meat attached that I will probably discard or give to the dog as I am doing better these days limiting my protein sources to gelatin, dairy, and shellfish. I know that the histamines in thawed meat develop as it sits in the fridge, but does the same hold true for the bones, and do you suppose the bones are still safe to use for broth after being in the fridge for that amount of time?

    Histamine content of gelatine is much lower than regular meat, about 1/4 .
    I do remember reading somewhere that for histamine intolerance
    fish should be eaten within 2-3 days of freezing, ( certain variety of fish
    develop histamine much quicker than others)chicken 1 week and beef
    3-4 weeks. I follow this guideline and it works quit good.
    You have to take into account the amount of time these foods
    were frozen before you bought.
