I bought some sodium free bouillon because I thought needed it for some soup I was making.
Just read the ingredients
sugar, potassium chloride, onion powder, maltodextrin, monoammonium glutamate, gelatin, dextrose, chicken fat, turmeric color, dehydrated parsley flavoring, disodium inosinate and disodium guanylate, silicon dioxide,
Finding it tough to find the right words for how much I don’t want this chemistry project in my soup or in my body. If I were home, I’d use the homemade stock I keep in the freezer. This “stuff” is going in the trash.
Want to make your own stock? Scrape up those tasty pan drippings after you roast a chicken or other piece of meat, and freeze it. Then you can cut off little bits to add to soups, beans, etc. Or you can use your crock pot and add vegetables and the meat of your choice and let it simmer while you are at work. I generally use: onion, garlic, celery, carrot, tomatoes, plus chicken or turkey.
Did I mention how grossed out I am about this stuff?
