Does store bought beef stock have collagen?

by 50 · January 24, 2013 at 12:46 PM

I'm having surgery tomorrow, and want to eat some beef stock post surgery to help healing. But I'm traveling, and don't have access to my normal bones. I also left my collagen powder at home.

I bought some gluten free grocery store beef stock. Is that normally a source of collagen? I know that a lot of things aren't what they are supposed to be.

If it doesn't have collagen, is there any readily available source of collagen apart from bones to make stock from?

I'm in Canada, so I can't readily access trader Joe's, etc.

Edit: Here's the beef stock that I have:

If the store-bought stock is a thin liquid at refrigerator temperature, the collagen-forming compounds have been removed.

If you want collagen aka gelatin in a pinch, why not just get some unflavored gelatin and dissolve in your liquid of choice? Bone broth is there for minerals as much as anything (meat is likely a better source of collagen than both broth even.)
