A couple of notes BEFORE you Begin- there are a number of different kinds of bouillon and flavorings. If you are concerned about your sodium intake choose lower sodium bouillon granules. If you’re concerned about MSG or similar flavorings, simply choose a different brand of bouillon that does not contain MSG.
