Bouillon is a compact but flavor-dense way to make your own stock or infuse a variety of dishes with rich taste. Just drop a few cubes or spoonfuls into your soup, pot roast, pot pie, or other savory dish, and you’re well on your way to a delicious meal. Those little bouillon cubes or grains really pack in the flavor, imprinting the essence of chicken, beef, or vegetables on anything to which they’re added.
Use Organic Bouillon for Great Flavors and Good HealthLiterally, “bouillon” means “the liquid in which something has been boiled,” but packaged bouillons are dehydrated and meant to be dissolved to unlock these rich boiled flavors. More specifically, bouillons are made from dehydrated vegetables and/or meats, depending on the tastes they’re meant to encapsulate. Organic bouillons give you ingredients that you can trust, in a dense and convenient package that can find a home in any kitchen.

Look for USDA Organic bouillons that provide the right combination of flavor and wholesomeness.
Better Than Bouillon

Better Than Bouillon avoids these drawbacks by putting everything into one jar, from which you can precisely measure and spoon the right amount of bouillon for every dish.
