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.

    • I really am iffy on talking about this side of my gluten issues, I think I am about to ruin my reputation on this forum coming about as some extreme crazy guy saying this but I wanted to get this off my chest and perhaps see if anyone else might share a similar trauma. I get emotional recalling it, this side of my reactions, as it is most ingrained and very traumatizing experience, and I am not proud of it as the mentality I have now disgust me but I am going to come out about it. One of the scariest things in this world is when your own mind turns against you, when you can not think about what you want to think about, when you can not do what you know you should be able to do. When I got glutened really bad these where things I felt with my own mind would start looping, and thoughts would not come together. I would loose comprehension, feel like I know I should be able to think about something but my mind was not working. The same thing looped over and over and over like a broken record, This led to anger, anxiety, depression, panic, top it off with loss of feeling in my hands and feet, and the pains in the gut......it was a nightmare. I would go as far as beating my head against walls and punching them out of frustration as to why my own body and mind where not working, I just wanted it to end the pain to stop. I still have scars on my fist from punching into a nail in a stud once and kept going.....I scared everyone and myself distanced my self from loved ones. And started running a bucket list accepting that I was going to die soon. Hell to this day parts of the brain damage seem to be permanent as I can no longer do computer programing or some forms of math, they just no longer make any sense or connect. Then we learned what was causing it, and once the symptoms started to fade, I would get very angry if someone in the shared house did something stupid and got me sick again. The fear of going back to that caused violent and drastic actions to get away from what was making me sick. The sheer fear of my own mind turning on me led me to drastic actions to prevent it, throwing everything away I thought could make me sick, making sure no one else used that kitchen, used freezer paper and gloves when fixing my foods and working in there. I really destroyed and burned all bridges I had then and alienated myself from others. In the end it motivated me to learn how to cook, to get and renovate my own apartment in a building downtown, and start a business to pay for my new diet, by selling safe food to others with this issues locally at farmer markets. But it changed me on a very deep level, that traumatic experience to this day I have a issue looking at others and dealing with other humans who eat that stuff.......the stuff that breaks my mind and body so horrifically. If I have to compare it to something its like watching aliens drinking antifreeze and eating poison.....it causes a subconscious level of disgust and slight envy. I really can not even look at the stuff without recall what it does and feeling a twitch. I know I am the alien here, but it feels vise versa, and I look down on the normal people as odd creatures.  I go to the store and find myself overly avoiding contamination, keeping stuff in my own bags, asking the cashier to scan and bag it as I pass it not letting it touch that flour I see on the belt. I am hyper sensitive to the stuff I know and that fear semi dominates my mind as crazy as it sounds.  I am recovering and am forcing myself to try to mingle with other humans overlooking that one thing, but that deep rooted trauma still flares up as a protective measure especially around foods.  I could talk on and on about the other side effects but this one is the hardest to talk about it, and I feel others might be able to relate to it.    
    • Time.  You need time to heal.  Yeah, I am like a broken record!  😄 So...Lycra is your best friend for now (that and old baggy sweats!).  Hang in there!  Hugs!     
    • So far dairy seems to be OK, as are eggs. I like canned chickpeas so will carry on with those. Beans I had ruled out at one point with the doctor's recommendation to go with the low FODMAPs diet but will reintroduce those now I know it probably wasn't that causing the problems.
    • Welcome!   I am confused.  Did you have a negative celiac blood test or a negative biopsy (taken via endoscopy)?
    • In addition to cheese made with yogurt, hard cheeses like cheddar, romano, parmesaen etc are also going to be lactose free. Eggs are also a good source of protein if you eat them. Do bear in mind that celiac can really mess with your head. It can cause depression and anxiety that can get worse for a short time when you first go gluten free. your life is not over by any means. The reason why you see more people on boards and in forums that are having problems is because most when they heal go on with their lives. We don't hear from them with the exception of a few that stick around to help people that are still struggling. Hang in there it will get better.
