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.

    • Hi everyone! I'm feeling very frustrated. I have been dealing with GI upset, bloating, very painful gas(that is hard to release), alternating from constipation to diarrhea for a long time now:(... my symptoms seem to be getting worse. Sometimes I get painful spasms located on my upper right quadrant of my stomach and low grade fever. I recently went to a GI doctor and he put me on a lactose free diet. He said I might be lactose intolerant and may have IBS. He did not think I would have celiac. I did relatively well on the lactose free diet for 2weeks.This diet alleviated some of my gas discomfort. Also, he had me get blood work for celiac, ulcerative colitis and H pylori. My bloodwork was positive for celiac disease. The antibody TTG was high 36.6, which is specific for celiac. My C-reactive protein was high as well 13.4--Norm is 2-7(C-reactive protein checks for inflammation anywhere in the body). They called me and told me I had to get an upper endoscopy, which biopsy showed up normal. So should I just leave it like that, or go to a different doctor and get a different opinion? I'm just wondering why TTG antibody-A  was elevated. I'm so frustrated and I really don't want my symptoms to get worse... is there a lot of false negative biopsy? What should I do:(??? Should I just give up...
    • It's all very frustrating.  I had the skin prick tests done last year and they told me I had no allergies, but I have reactions all the time, such as itching, watery, runny, itchy eyes, digestive issues, stomach cramps, IBS-type symptoms,  mental fogginess, etc.   I had blood tests done by a naturopath a few years ago and my worst food intolerance was wheat/gluten by far.  The naturopath found several other reactive foods but said most of them were mild compared to my reaction to gluten.  I looked online at the ingredients for both products, but it's confusing, the main ingredients shared by these two products were brown rice flour and potato starch.  I've used brown rice in baking with no problems, it could be the potato starch, which I don't often use, but I don't have any reaction to eating real potatoes.  
    • It starts as a piercing itch and the skin turns reddish with a few tiny red bumps. Then tiny watery vesicles appear and itch like crazy. The whole process from start to finish is about 3 weeks and the lesions leave a purplish skin tone and scab. I get them on the back side of both knees near the bend.  Sometimes it's just a few scattered vesicles in the same area. I've had Drs say eczema or herpes. My next step is to find a dermatologist familiar with dh. Thanks for the input.
    • DH can look like that but other things can as well. It would help if you described the way it acts/presents. You can get a dh biopsy. Read threads in this section to find out how the biopsy is done correctly. 
    • my celiac was triggered by pregnancy.  had no clue.  symptoms creeped up (started with indigestion, deemed as 'colitis' or 'ibs') but eventually all the ones you mentioned above all joined the party.  sounds like you are headed in the right direction.  one of the points of diagnosis is the reaction to the gluten-free diet.  keep digging.  half the people on here don't have a firm diagnosis (science really needs to catch up with this disease)  and a false negative blood test is fairly common, for whatever reason - if you've not been eating gluten every day for like 8 weeks, it may not detect antibodies, which is what these tests are measuring.  sorry you're having this dilemma!  hope you find some answers.
