    I think they say no more than 2 teaspoons full a day as it's quite high in salt.

    I have to say that without it I'd have REALLY struggled. It's delicious!

    When I did LL it was no more than 2 cups a day, and that was of their "official" savoury drink. Turned out it was exactly the same as Marigold bouillon, which, of course, was FAR cheaper!!!

    it is a swiss vegetable stock and can be found on the gravy aisle in supermarkets.
    tastes a little like a concentrated vegetable stock, imagine oxo without the meat.
    costs £1.22 at tesco and lasts ages.
    can also be used on AAM week as a stock for cooking fish or chicken (yumm)

    If you go for the one in the purple tub with the orange lid Marigold Vegan Vegetable Bouillon it is reduced salt. I have a couple of these a day and it really helps with the fluid intake.

    Can I just say as well, as a Tesco shopper (I think they are all pretty much the same sort of layout) that it ISNT where you would expect to find it in the pasta/pasta sauce/ spices/ gravy aisle but can be found in the 'specialist product' aisle.

    I believe that we cant have ANY type of bouillon (i bought a chicken one and was told it was off limits!) but the MARIGOLD type in the round tub. I hope that this is correct!

    In my tesco (mine?? ha ha... it blinking well ought to be the amount i spend in there) it's in the weirdo product aisle with all the misfit items that don't seem to belong anywhere else!

    Its delicious and a great 'treat'...

    how strange mikki, wonder why they put it there.
    it is on the gravy aisle in my 2 most local stores.
    my hubby works in the uk's largest store where i usually shop but even in the smaller one it is in the same place, just after the gravy.
    just as well really cause i never go down the specialist aisle as it is mainly polish delicacies in our store and i dont care much for things such as ' pigs fat in oil' lol not strictly a CD approved food im sure. lol
