I'm torn as I like the flavour and it's easy and convenient to use. But it has maltodextrin as a thickener and its highly glycemic and gets consumed by body as carb and highly processed. Wish there's a version without some of these additives amongst others.

This is great stuff. It's useful as a soup base, of course, but for many other recipes as well. I recently used it to make a delicious umami base for spaghetti sauce, for instance. Excellent!!!

Best Organic Chicken Base ever!

Let's face it. You want to buy organic but get sticker shock. I know I do. And fresh home made stock or broth can't be beat for flavor or richness. But to be honest, I have used many brands of boxed stocks and broths. Many are weak and watery and certainly don't compare to the richness of home made. So why would you think that Better Than Bouillon would? First, it's not bouillon, it's a semi-sticky base made from a concentration of organic stock with bits of chicken still in there. It's not that dried out crusty stuff you get in cubes that's mostly sodium. Admittedly, it would be nice to see a lower sodium version of their organic products, but through the years they've added many new equally good flavors. It's very concentrated. You use only a little. And there's practically no waste. The shelf life is very long in the fridge. So, for what it costs you to make one large pot of soup with two boxes of the other stuff, you could be getting 40+ out of this jar for the same price.

Best bouillon on the market for tasting like real chicken broth. I use exclusively for making gravy.

I live in Southern California and used to be able to purchase Better Than Boullion products at my local Ralph's (Kroger) store. They stopped carrying the product and the fact that I order it online rather than settle for what Ralph's now has to offer is all that needs to be said about my satisfaction with the product. I would, however, like to see Chile added to the product offering. It used to be available and it was great.

I used it with rice, pasta, and soup. Everything turned out more delicious.
