Chicken bouillon, powdered

What is chicken bouillon, powdered? About the ingredient chicken bouillon, powdered. Including 86 recipes with chicken bouillon, powdered, nutrition data, and where to find it.


Powdered chicken bouillon/stock is dehydrated broth (bouillon in French) or stock formed into a powder.

It is made by dehydrating vegetables, meat stock, a small portion of solid fat (such as hydrogenated oil), salt (usually well over 50%) and seasonings (usually including monosodium glutamate).

Broth made from chicken bouillon powder is different in taste from fresh broth because of its higher salt content and flavours changed by the boiling process.

It is widely used in English cooking to add flavour, particularly in soups, stews and casseroles.
