Broth Powder

13 posts in this topic

Hey guys....again. I was wondering whether anyone could recommend a good gluten free and yeast free bouillon cube or powder. I found some with chicken but not beef :-( I live in Chattanooga and I usually shop at earth fare or fresh market, but I am willing to buy online if I find a good organic brand.

I buy HerbOX granular. all the time. I know it's gluten free, but not too sure about yeast free. Is there a reason why you would want a yeast free bouillon? Is yeast your concern?

I'm not supposed to be having any canned broths or even bouillon or anything like that. I am also yeast free. I wonder if I'm supposed to be broth free because of the yeast since I'm okay to make my own stock. That's a great thing for me to investigate and I'm glad you asked about it since it gives me something to do tomorrow. Now I'm kind of excited as I've been craving my favorite carrot soup that takes chicken broth.

I just googled it and apparently there is a brand called marigold swiss that makes a vegetable one. I'll have to see if it's something I can have, I'm a little excited.

I can't offer specific brand advice, but my experience over the years has been that most cubes are held together with gluten-containing binders. You are more likely to find a gluten-free powder, even within the same brand.

I feel I had a reaction to yeast once before. I used bobs red mill pizza crust mix and after eating it my throat and or esophagus swelled and a spot I scratched on my arm while mixing puffed up with red dots like poison ivy. I have used all kinds of flour mixes with the same ingredients except the yeast. Until I speak with my allergist I would rather just avoid it.

:-) yeah I bought a powder based one made by "vogue". So what all specifically in broth powders were you supposed to avoid? Just the yeast? I was just wondering why you said you weren't supposed to have any of it.

Haha that explains a lot! Thank you. I don't believe there is anything wrong with powder form. It works just as well as cubes.

I stopped using the powder/cubes as well as canned broth many years ago due to the high sodium content. At first I looked for low sodium varieties, but finally decided it was easier to make my own. That's something you might think about -- it's not difficult and you can make a big batch and freeze it in smaller containers to have on hand.

I'm tyramine free which is complicated. Generally though what I'm avoiding though (that would be an issue with the broth) is aged, canned, cured, processed meats or any meats treated with meat tenderizer, soy, yeast, excessive amounts of salt or msg. There are probably more things on my list that could be in vegetable broths but it's stinking early. Mostly though, more than I want bouillon I'm lazy. I'm also pretty much out of room in my freezer and deep freeze.

Yeah I don't know the first thing about that. All I know is that it does unfortunately have soy. Ya never know though, maybe you can find some that does not.

Hey, I don't know if you're looking specifically for the convenience of a cube or powder or if you're just looking for the flavors. I was at Costco the other day and while wandering around found a case of chicken stock that happens to be organic (which isn't like woohoo or anything but I know some people are into that) and is super tasty. There isn't a weird thing in it at all. And best of all, it's CHEAP! It was $12 for 6 boxes of stock. That's a whole heck of a lot cheaper than the boxes at the grocery stores.

So anywho, if you have a Costco near you it's the Kirkland brand and it's super yummy. I highly recommend it if it suits your needs.

Yes I live in Ooltewah, TN. That is north of Chattanooga and the nearest Costco is down in Ft. Oglethorpe, Georgia. I have never been inside but if they had a good selection for people like us, and prices that are fair, I may chech it out. Right now I do most of my shopping at earth fare and fresh market. I buy everything all natural. Is there a good selection at places like that?

I love the selection and am thrilled that I got a membership. I get large sliced "bricks" of fresh mozzarella. They have an off-brand of something like Cocoa Pebbles that I'm looking forward to when I can have chocolate again. There's another cereal I get I like a lot that's all multi-grain and healthy and is probably natural. They were really awesome though. I explained that I have celiac and they let me in to browse the selection before I bought my membership. They should be more than happy to accommodate you the same way and you can decide for yourself if they have enough natural stuff to suit you.

Also, if you do decide on a membership make sure you sign up for the email and mail stuff. If I hadn't I wouldn't have known to pick up a pack of coupons at the desk. I went in this week and spent $140 but saved just over $50 with the coupons. I got the world's biggest jug of natural dish washing soap for like 8 bucks.

    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I'm ok, just a little tired right now.  Lots of stress getting elderly parents and in-laws taken care of. My thyroid took a dip low (no surprise there) so I had to increase dose by a quarter grain. Overall, I am not dragging all day but waking up and getting going in the morning is slowwwwwwwww.  I'm sure you understand that! Yeah........Barty.  I thought of her for DAYS on end and it just saddens me to no end that such good people are the ones being taken.  Sometimes life is just so unfair. We all know that but there are times when it really hits you in the gut. There are times I think they are the lucky ones with the way the world is going these days. This terrorism plague is unnerving and I am really getting mad about it. Dear God, please stop this shyte!  I also miss nvsmom and others who have not been heard from. I hope she is feeling better and is just busy with life.  I got glutened on vacation about 6 years ago on the first day in Liverpool.  Jeez, was I sick!  I know how you feel but take heart........that was the last time I was bagged on vacation.  The longer you are gluten free and heal, the faster you recover from hits. You also get very good at not being glutened. It has been almost 2 years since it happened to me last so after 11 years gluten-free, I think I am doing well with that. I still have a little work to do with the vitamin D levels but I work so seeing much sun isn't happening.  My levels have doubled but they are still under 50. This whole Celiac thing is a part time job!

      Hang in there SLLRUNNER...it is hard and frustrating.  Good job getting that appointment moved up.  I've done too...I've called daily looking for cancellations.  I can also remember counting down the days until my appointment.  ((((Hugs)))) and please let us know how it goes.
    • So I've been glutened....
      Miso soup has gluten in it, doesn't it? =/ I know that I've been avoiding it, which is a big shame because I adore miso!
    • Kissing and gluten
      Hi guys. I know this is a topic that has come up before, but I'd appreciate a little bit of advice. I've been 'courting' a guy for the past few months; nothing has happened yet but we have a proper date in a few weeks which is likely to lead to kissing. He didn't even know what a ceoliac was until a few days ago; I don't think he'd caught the hints that I'd been dropping beforehand. English isn't his first language - he's east Asian. Anyway, I've heard about being potentially glutened via a kiss. How do I broach this? I don't want to scare him off or make him think that I'm a lot of hard work; I know, I know, he's going to have to accept me as I am, etc. but for someone new to the entire thing, it is likely overwhelming. It would be for me if I'd never heard of it! Do I laughingly bring it up beforehand? We aren't going for food so if he isn't eating, just having a cup of tea, will I still need to be careful? If this seems safe, do I just let him kiss me and then bring up afterwards that any future kisses after food will have different precautions?  It all feels so clinical! He's a lovely guy so I do think he'll be understanding, but if anyone has any advice of first hand experience on how to approach the topic without it being a weird moment, that would be great.  
    • gluten-free...how long til I feel better?
      Hi there.  I had been sick for over a year and decided to try and go off gluten within 4 weeks i started to feel better than i had for so long! But my problem is now i test negative for celiac because i have no gluten in my body. I have been told to go back on gluten so it can be determined if i have it or not but im not willing to go back to feeling that sick again!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
