I don't use bullion It does manage to cut the salt in half (700mg sodium) of the Top ramen(1375 mg sodium), but I can't use 4 cups of stock at work. I guess I could repackage it in 1 tsp size servings in a covered container and make my noodles that way. I basically do the same with my Miso for soup.

Just goes to show; Check those labels! So many folks look down on house labels. A lot of times they turn out to be better than big name brands.

I've used some of the Knorr chicken product. Better than the pallid canned/boxed stocks I can get around here. Salty, as expected for such products. Not as good, of course, as a well made stock, but an improvement over the cans and boxes and certainly easier to store. Chicken powder and chicken fat.

You might want to try More Than Gourmet glaces and demi-glaces. 1.5 ounce cups. Available on Amazon. They are true reduced stock. Available in chicken, veal and beef, lamb, fruits de mer, turkey, etc.

i have used both the beef and chicken ones. i had to use two and not as much water as it called for. made wonderful french onion soup and chicken chili. i didn't find it as salty as the powdered stuff. more favorable than the canned. just didn't add any salt to either one.

I grew up on knorr products but hate them now. They always have a knorr artificial taste to them.

Instead of buying "concentrated stock" make your own glacÚ or buy a container of minors

Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.
