    Frequently Asked Questions

    Is Better Than Bouillon gluten free?
    They don’t test their finished products for gluten; therefore, they do not make any claims or representations regarding gluten. However, they understand how important it is for people who have been medically diagnosed with gluten sensitivity to have accurate information about foods to help plan their meals and diets. Therefore, they list ingredients that contain gluten on the ingredient statements of their products. These items will be listed using commonly known terms such as Wheat, Barley, Oats or Rye. For other ingredients that contain gluten, the grain source will be declared in parenthesis after the ingredient name. For example, if the ingredient "natural flavor" contains a gluten source, the label would read: natural flavor (contains rye).

    Does Better than Bouillon contain MSG?
    If MSG is present in any of their items, it will be shown on the label. They work closely with government regulatory agencies (FDA & USDA), as well as specialist certification bodies like Quality Assurance International (for organic items) to ensure that their ingredient statements are accurate and transparent.

    I use Better Than Bouillon products for more than soup and stews, combine with mayonnaise and/or sour cream to make a dip or a sauce to pour over food. Perfect for stew. Tastes like you've spent hours making the base.
