Why You’ll Love Organic Chicken Base Bouillion
Whether it’s a soup, a sauce, a roast, or some other recipe, there is a good chance that it will call for chicken stock. Used in everything from making rice more rich tasting, to creating a great gumbo, chicken stock is a mainstay in kitchens around the world. The best stock is homemade from real chicken meat, but these days it can be hard to find the time to make it from scratch. For those who are too busy, Better Than Bouillon Organic Chicken Base is a great alternative that can provide excellent results in any recipe.
A better bouillon
Just as the name of the company suggests, the belief at Better Than Bouillon is that today’s cooks deserve a natural, delicious way to make stock without having to go through a complex or time consuming process. Better Than Bouillon Organic Chicken Base is different than the cubes or liquids many are familiar with, especially since it can be spooned right out of the jar.
This spoonable nature gives total control over flavor intensity. For those recipes that need a robust, rich chicken flavor, it’s easy to add extra without trying to break a cube in half. Better Than Bouillon Organic Chicken Base allows for maximum control over all recipes, from sauces, to gravies, to soups, and stir fry—it really is a better bouillon!
The natural difference
One of the issues people have with chicken stock is that if they don’t make it themselves, they aren’t sure what’s in it. Thankfully, Better Than Bouillon Organic Chicken Base contains no chemicals or artificial preservatives. Instead, all ingredients are completely natural and includes things like turmeric, potato starch, and dried garlic.
Better Than Bouillon Organic Chicken Base is also fully certified organic, which allows families to purchase it with confidence, knowing they’re getting a great product that will help recipes in a big way. And while it’s rich in flavor, it doesn’t have the heavily salted taste that many expect when using pre-made bouillon.
Health benefits of chicken broth
When thinking of healthy foods, it’s easy to get so focused on things like veggies and fruits that other options are overlooked. But chicken broth can be one of the healthiest foods in a nutrition plan, and when combining Better Than Bouillon Organic Chicken Base with things like celery, onions, carrots, and herbs, it leaves a delicious broth that can offer several major health benefits:
- Chicken broth is low in calories and in fat. With an average of just 40 calories for an 8 ounce serving, it’s a way to fill up fast and avoid excessive caloric intake. This can help with weight loss, but care must be taken to ensure that an adequate diet is maintained in terms of nutrition since plain broth has few nutrients for energy.
- Better Than Bouillon Organic Chicken Base also creates a broth that is easy to digest and is good for the body when sick.
- While broth doesn’t contain many of the amino acids or other compounds needed for overall energy, when combined with veggies it can deliver a lot of minerals the body needs. This includes a high level of potassium, which promotes better heart health, along with phosphorous, which promotes stronger bones and helps with metabolic function.
Common uses for Better Than Bouillon Organic Chicken Base
Versatility is the name of the game when it comes to chicken stock, and Better Than Bouillon Organic Chicken Base brings the perfect flavor to nearly any dish. Some of the ways that chicken stock is often used today includes the following:
- It’s the most common base is for soups, especially chicken noodle soup. It also applies to soups that are inspired by all types of culinary styles, from Vietnam, to Mexico, to the USA.
- Replacing some of the water with Better Than Bouillon Organic Chicken Base when boiling rice can enrich its taste as well as provide added nutrition.
- Pan sauces and gravies require stock or wine. Using Better Than Bouillon Organic Chicken Base to create a sauce is a great way to add rich flavor.
Other great Better Than Bouillon bases
Chicken stock may be the most versatile option for many, but Better Than Bouillon also brings their healthy, simple, and convenient approach to other bouillon bases as well, making it easy to get exactly the right base for any recipe.
This base is perfect for recipes that use beef products. Examples include beef stews, beef roasts, gravy for steaks, and more. It features the same easy, spoonable nature as Better Than Bouillon Organic Chicken Base Bouillon along with a great taste.
For vegetarians, the right vegetarian friendly base will serve as a replacement in almost any recipe that calls for Better Than Bouillon Organic Chicken Base Bouillon or other chicken stocks. As with their other bouillon base products, this vegetable stock is completely organic and made with care.
Reviews For Organic Chicken Base Bouillion
Based on 28 Reviews
This stuff is AMAZING!!!! It's not at all like the salty bouillion that you're thinking of. I've used it to make a soup I call, "Killer Soup" and to just make a cup of hot broth on a cold winter day. I've tried it in their other flavors too. They are also just as great as this one.
I like being able to increase the intensity of flavor with this bouillon. It's sodium heavy, so make certain that you're mindful of that before seasoning other recipe ingredients.
Hoping this company will add a low sodium version.
A little goes a long way and it stores well.
Excellent Chicken Base Flavors
This is so handy and so flavorful. I've always made my own broths but this changed my mind. I use this in a variety of foods and can't complain one bit about it. Love it!
- Shirley Day
This bullion is very flavorful and a little goes a long way. I use a scant teaspoon to a cup of water and it makes a lovely tasting broth. It is a bit too salty for me, that's why I gave it four stars, but it makes a delicious soup/sauce base.
Too much sugar
this seems like such a great option- tossing a teaspoon in a mug of water to have a quick broth to perk me up, but it is way too sweet. I find that I have to add much more salt and herbs to balance the flavor. It is easier to use/enjoy when I am making more involved recipes but as a broth I will keep looking for the right product.
Better Than Bouillon
Wonderful flavor. I like it because I can add more for a stronger flavor if I like. Very pleased with this.
a bit pricey but good
Good flavor but a bit pricey. Wish you'd carry it in a larger size.
Flavor, flavor, flavor
I use this in the cooking water when I make quinoa, barley and rice. It just adds that much more flavor to my dishes. I usually am cooking for one, so it's easy to just open the jar and use what I need.
I love making crock pot soups, and I recently tried this stuff because it's organic. It made my soup so tasty! I ordered 2 more on my second order because it runs out pretty quickly. I highly recommend this over a chicken broth or bouillion cubes if you're trying to be healthier!
Works very well.
I like this better than any bouillion I've ever tried. Works great in recipes or just mixing it up to sip. I have a hard time finding it locally sometimes, so very happy Thrive always has it available.
Great substitute for liquid chicken broth!
I really like this product. It tastes very good and provides much more flavor than liquid broth! I would buy this again when I run Out! I have had it just in broth form instead of soup! Really enjoy it!
The best bouillion
Really is the best tasting chicken base bouillion!
It's great as a soup base, a flavor pump for sauces and for seasoning chicken.
This stuff is AMAZING....GREAT to cook with
Makes Recipes Very Easy
This is the best middle between having boxes of chicken stock where the excess always goes bad and using dried cubes that just taste like salt. I use this weekly and it makes my recipes taste great!
Will Keep on Hand
This is a great addition to any chicken dish that seems to need just a little extra flavor.
Can't make soup without it!,
Great for chicken broth
I recently had the flu and this was a real God-send...I highly recommend this to keep on hand. I use mine for regular cooking as well as for soup and just broth.
A Must Have!
Great organic chicken broth. I use about half of what a recipe calls for.
Full of flavor
I really like this over stock and bouillon cubes. It is really flavorful and I can adjust how much to use depending on the dish.
great product and great value
Have used for gravies, sauces & soups for years. Less salt & great flavor. Never without it in my kitchen. Reg grocery store price is same for only 4 oz.

Great flavor booster
I love using this as a flavor booster. Great for cooking rice or quinoa!
beware if sensitive to yeast or MSG
This product, while delicious, can trigger migraines in those who are sensitive to MSG. If you are trying to avoid yeast, I suggest you stick with homemade broth for now. Hopefully, some manufacturer is listening!!!! I will be buying the first soup mix or base I find that does NOT contain yeast extract or "natural flavor" from this source. I repeat, however, it is delicious.
Actually contains Yeast extract
I purchased this item because the ingredient list here said that it did not contain Yeast Extract - an MSG clone that often can trigger migraines. I was disappointed when receiving the product to find that it does in fact contain Yeast Extract.
Makes a great chicken soup
This is an organic bouillon that I use as one of the building blocks for my chicken soup. It adds a lot of flavor, and without it, the soup doesn't have that flavor and aroma that makes chicken soup so special. There's nothing but organic ingredients in this bouillon, made from non-hormone chickens and natural juices. I never start my soup without this in the pantry.
- Andy Hopkins
Actually Is Better than Bouillon
This is a really good chicken base. It has a less "processed" taste than the cubes I normally use, and it doesn't taste nearly as salty either. I love that I can add exactly as much as I need, and some days I'm feeling adding more than other days. I don't have to add in "one cube" increments either. I can just add as much as I want at a time.
My friend pointed out that this includes "natural flavor" which is sometimes used as a cover for MSG. You may want to do more research into this before purchasing if you have an MSG allergy.

Better than Broth
I like to make my broth from starch, but occasionally it is much easier to just throw in a can of broth and make my soups and gravy's that way. I am not a fan of bouillion because it is so full of sodium, and it doesn't taste true to home made broth.
Every time I use this Chicken Base my broth tastes better and very flavorful. It actually makes my home made broth taste even better as well! It has great chicken flavor. My gravy's stews, and soups are so much more flavorful and delicious.
- Sera J
An excellent alternative
I have found this to be far better than the over-salty, traditional bouillon cubes and powders that may have a litany of questionable ingredients. I love homemade chicken soup and make it often during cold weather. This gives a "boost" and a lot of extra flavor to broths and stocks, and can also add chicken flavor to side dishes. A great product!
