    Does anyone else have this. I used to use it for stock when making soup but remembered that its ok for a VLCD. Had it as a hot drink tonight and OMG its lovely!! Really tasty, has much more of a 'real' soup taste....

    I think Im addicted lol

    Hehe, I know Starlight, I've been having 1 or 2 cups a day and it really lovely for a savoury hit! The only trouble is, I've had to replace a jar of it and could only get a new low-salt version - yuk!!!! Just doesn't taste the same! I'm using up the chicken and beef flavour ones that have been hanging around my cupboard now :)

    All I know is that LighterLife sell a savoury broth (which I never bought, but apparently the nutritional information was nigh-on identical to vegetable bouillion), and you could have 2 cups a day. I think the limit is because of the salt content, though someone please correct me if I'm wrong. I stick to a 5g teaspoon in a mug twice a day - perfect now the weather's colder :) x

    hi everyone just to confirm i spoke to exante its perfectly fine to have the boullion drink they said it wont affect your ketosis or loss at all but personally i would recommend the low salt if you can.

    Well done Spyro! I'm glad you asked them direct as I didn't want to advise about something I wasn't sure on. Bouillion has been a lifesaver this last week - I'm definitely finding the colder weather harder.

    I don't know if it's the ones I bought or what I think they're called "Just Bouillon" from Tesco but they leave a layer of fat on top and the thought of drinking it grosses me out =S I'll have to try this Knorr one instead.

    The new Knorr one is 25 less salt - and it has a layer of gross oil on the top - NOT IMPRESSED!!!! It's much less tasty than the old one too :(
